So I saw an advert for 'Comics Unmasked' at The British Museum and I thought to myself, how can I resist going to see such an exhibition, especially when it is so close. So last week I booked my ticket and today I set off.
Overall I think it was a pretty cool exhibit! Very nice one so thank you British Museum. ᕙ(`▽´)ᕗ
A few of the pieces caught my eye, and I made a few sketches in the small amount of time that I had.
( Not the exhibits time limit, my own. (︺︹︺) )
A few of these sketches are below.

in the comic Batman: Arkham Asylum.
Here are a few more sketches that I did throughout the tour:
Another piece that caught my eye especially was the publication of the Victorian 'Penny Dreadful'. I knew nothing about this except that there has been a recent release of a series by this title, so to see this was like an explosion in my mind. Very awesome indeed.
If you dont know anything about either, let me help you out with that. Heres a link to the Penny Dreadful site, and a beautiful image of the cast is below.
Not only all of this, but I also found out later today that a local old pub, 'The Spaniards Inn' was also names after a highway robber that used to robb people that were comming out of London. Guess his name? Dick Turpin, Also the name of the main anti hero in Penny Dreadfull! So eventualy and hopefully sometime soon I will take a trip up there and get some sketches of the Inn and of 'Jack Straws Castle'.
AAANNND I got a huge haul! I couldn't resist. Granted, some bits were found but who can resist pens and comics? Not I.So bellow you will se the comic of Batman that I bought, going to have fun reading that one tonight. (˘‿˘ʃƪ) And I had to get a postcard, a little tradition with Musiums for me that I think everybody should invest in. A pick for my guitar, a leaf I found in one of the decorative display books. And other bits and pieces about the exhibit.
Just one of those days it seems. I thought I was being a little crazy with my outfit but obviously my day wasn't wacky enough. So on this particular day I decided that I was going to go out and do some nice watercolour sketches of some statues in the graveyard for my blog; seems simple enough.

And Last but not least this little lady. I'm not sure what I intended with this one, gentleness definitely. but also I think I just wanted to do a pretty lady. =p
Yay! New Photography
And amongst a few other things, I gave the gift of puzzle face....
These are the colours
and shimmers that I
used for the whole thing.
So I'm branching out into character design now, still refreshing my brain and hands how to draw again. So to start with my character designing I thought I should review some old characters that haven't really ever seen the light of day, as ush'. So here for now are some of my older characters and soon hopefully I will be uploading some new characters. Characters Characters characters, as if I haven't said that word enough. /'''\ (Ⓘ.Ⓘ) /'''\
The first three images were for an old friend of mine that I bumped into on the bus one day and she asked me to draw a few poses for one of her characters she was thinking of making into a comic. I'm not quite sure what happened to that idea, but here are some pictures of Beatrice McGuires (aka BT.) character that I drew for her.
