Day 14. A nightingale in a nightgown.

Updated: Apr 17, 2018


Day 14 and I thought I'd bring a bit more paint into the illustration today. A bit more atmosphere too. When I draw these little 'cartoony' illustrations I immediately throw all painterly techniques out the window and go very graphic. I don't know why I make such a separation between the two styles but in the future I'd like to combine them a bit more. I might use the rest of the project to try this out. Watch this space...


How to win

If you'd like to win this nightingale in her nightgown and curlers just go to the comment section below and...

Get your entries in before midnight tonight (16/04/2018) and then come back here tomorrow to see if you've won...

...Good Luck!



Poor Nellie has to do her curlers in the dark because Norris is a little too fond of the horses.


Congrats Paddy Mac, you're the winner!


Well done!

Nellie wasn't happy...

"Norris! The electricity is gone! Did you lose all the money on The Grand National again?"
