Idle Hands, 2006, ink on paper

Continuing the Walking Backwards theme for a second day, I give you Idle Hands. This one wasn’t even on my hard-drive. It was hidden away on a recordable DVD. Honestly, I had completely forgotten about it. I’m not sure why. It has a lot of my favorite elements: books, wasp nests, birds, weird characters with ambitious heads.

Misguided Taxidermist, 2006, ink on paper, 11″ x 9″

I’ve decided to start an irregular category on this blog called Walking Backwards. It’s like a Throwback Thursday thing but it will appear as the mood suits. Walking Backwards will feature works, dug from my groaning hard-drive,  which I created in the past but haven’t posted in a while. How far back I go will depend on how brave I am feeling.

Today’s inaugural drawing was done back in 2006. I have to say that I love sepia ink, especially on a nicely pebbled watercolor paper. It feels like I drew the Misguided Taxidermist yesterday. I remember very clearly being pleased with the characters. I think it would be a blast to illustrate a book in them manner. Publishers prick your ears! I hope you enjoy this selection.
