Day 09…

Day 9


So…todays words are….Fringe and Kind!!!


Straight away I’m thinking I could draw characters, with fringes and or wearing fringes. Im not sure how to incorporate the kind part….maybe they could be helping somebody or giving presents or maybe they could just be fringe kind of girls!!!! Tough one….gotta go think!


I have an idea….am not entirely sure how it’s gonna go!! I’m thinking…

It’s a Kind of Fringe day!!!

…So…I’m after taking photos of a few different people and have got a bamboo tablet! I,m going to try drawing caricatures of people and then I’ll give them each a different style of fringe!!

Am back listening to some real tunes today…..Smashing Pumpkins….gotta love em!!


Right….so I’m trying to draw with a bamboo tablet…..its different!!!


Ha ha…I’m trying to draw Twiggy…she’s my bestie!!(she’s so not gonna be happy when she sees this!!)

hmmmmm……its tough…am not sure if this is the kinda style I want for this!!?? It doesn’t even look like her!! :)

This is too funny not to share…..I tried to draw Kev and thought I’d bring him back to his youth and give him a fringe that was parted in the middle….ha!!

Right….drawing with the bamboo is very very cool but I would like a bit more practice before I go creating full images with it….so ……this is my new plan.

I have taken photos of Me, Twiggy, Kevin and Tomasz…..I’m going to keep the photos in..draw over parts of the faces with the bamboo and then draw four different funny fringe hairstyles in illustrator. I then want to place us in four squares…well…like a square each. Kevin will be looking over at me..I will be looking down at Tomasz…Tomasz will be looking over at Twiggy and Twiggy will be looking up at Kev!!! Kinda like the Brady Bunch!!! :)

So while was fixing images in photoshop I had this…and I did have a little giggle to myself….I thought it would be funny to use just the two boys….

Screen Shot 2016-04-21 at 15.47.52 …I reckon it would be funny to give Tomasz a fancy new fringe hairdo…because its like hes looking up at it…and its like Kev is looking at him thinking..where did he get that fancy hair!!!!


Im still in photoshop…got rid of the green-screen…well most of it anyway..and think I’m ready to start drawing over the images!

Here we are…the fantastic four :)

I have to go home for a little while before my kids forget they have a mammy.

This is where I am at….still got a whole lot of work to do. Im gonna fix the hair and stuff when I have more of the faces done!

Haaa….doesn’t Kevin look pretty!! And I’m pretty sure Tomasz had hair like that in his last life…it suits him so well!! :)


I think I may have figured out what this image needs…..dots dots and more dots. When I came back and looked at it after a little break I realised it reminded me of a pop art style image. It also helps with covering the fairly bad photography!! :)

Afterthoughts: So……that was a long day…but it was a funny day!I was to busy with dots to blog much tonight. The final image I created is the kind that people will either love or hate…but I think it’s a funny kind of image. I actually had fun making this and did laugh to myself a few times! :)

It’s just a funky Fringe Kind of day!!!
