Here’s my second, gruesome pancake comic from the same doodle session:
I don’t know what got into me with these! How could anyone eat that tiny cute blob?! But they were fun to draw. And pancakes are delicious…
If you didn’t see the first pancake comic featuring my bf it’s here.
With this one, I thought I would erase the handwritten text and rewrite speech bubbles like I usually do with comics. But I decided to keep the hand writing in, because it’s a different look and easy enough to read (I think).
Also, it saved me a bit of editing time. I’ve been practicing my digital editing of drawings a lot this past year. But at the moment I feel like spending some more time on the hand drawing process (on paper).
In my last post I promised to share the original sketch book page, so you can get a glance at the chaotic ways of my doodlings 😀 Here you go!
I made two (somewhat grim) pancake comics on the same piece of paper, the next one is coming up soon. But all the doodles are mixed together so it takes a while to cut them up digitally and put them back together in a way that makes sense. I’ll post the original drawing in the next post, so you can see what I mean.
Until then – you can check out my other comics here:
I tried a bit of a new style in this doodle leaving in some background colour that shows up in a random pattern from the light hitting the paper when I take a photo with my crappy phone camera (that still works) and uses the function ‘image trace’ to clean up the comic in Adobe Illustrator.
I think I like the bit of colour for times when I can’t be bothered to fully colour in the comic.
Walking home from a coffee date with my roommate from uni (shoutout to her – we still call each other “roomie” even though it’s been many years since we lived together and were always late for class, and she probably won’t read this, because she’s not a very big social media person but very present in real life, which I find very cool, but anyway!) – I walked past two girls having a very friendly and mild-mannered argument.
They could have been a couple, but the argument almost sounded too friendly to be a partner argument – for instance, I didn’t hear the sentence “you always [something something]” 😀
The fun thing is that it took me a while to figure out what they were talking about. Walking by, I heard one of them say:
“If one of them has to die, it should be that one…”
(I didn’t eavesdrop on purpose, you guys! Really! I was walking normally minding my own business. Anyway!)
I then figured out from the next words that I caught in passing that they were talking about plants, both rooting (hehehehehe!) for a specific plant to stay in the apartment.
Also, I didn’t really look at them, because I’m not THAT creepy, so I made up their looks in the doodle.
So, I’ve been longing to get a dog for ages. However, it’s not very practical to have a dog in our apartment where it would be alone for several hours of the day.
Also, I might have a new favourite animal…
Last week, we went on a trip to a beautiful part of Denmark to mountainbike and hike (The purple blobs in the comic are supposed to be heather – Everything was purple and green!).
There were lots of sheep and goats hanging out in the hills. This particular teen lamb was extra cute and ran up to us to check us out. And then he/she just stood there for a while. Such a precious moment!
I’m not saying a sheep would be easier than a dog to have in our apartment. But I’m allowed to dream. Maybe we should get a dog and a sheep and they could be best friends?***
If you think this post has been too cute and happy and nice so far, I also got really excited when I saw a worm crossing a poop mountain in the middle of the road:
***Minutes later: I googled a bit and found this article from the Telegraph. So I guess that plan is settled.
