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.
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.
The thing is, I get hungry. Sometimes from one minute to the next. And I happen to live with a Slow Eater. We try not to food shame (or generally shame) each other, because that’s obviously not nice or healthy.
It’s just that… We’re both a bit surprised every time I manage to spray burrito filling all over myself and the furniture in a very short time, while Slow Eater hasn’t spilled a single crumb.
I guess burritos are difficult to eat for some people. And when I start making a mess, I feel like I might as well just continue down that road.
Fun facts about this comic:
#1: We don’t actually sit shoulder to shoulder and eat dinner like that. We obviously lounge at either end of the couch while watching YouTube, like proper grown-ups.
#2: Slow Eater doesn’t actually own a nice, red, woolly sweater, but I asked which colour he wanted to wear in the comic and he requested this – and now wants to get one IRL.
#3: Last month I drew another comic of me and my BF – you can check it out here: Duvet drama.
My boyfriend and I went to London last week and stayed at a hotel. The city was amazing and sunny and we had really good food. Living together in a tiny room for 5 days was… FUN 😀 But also a little bit like:
Seriously, what is up with the double duvets?!
It’s been a while since I made a comic strip – I used to draw comics when I was younger and I sometimes still make them for my own entertainment. I might make more if anything else exciting happens, like that wild duvet story!
* After posting this I can see that I wrote “this rooms looks nice” in the third image. So that one ‘s’ shouldn’t be there 🙄
