It's just a prank, Cody

via Instagram

During the week, awareness was raised about a YouTuber by the name DaddyOfive (daddy ‘o five) and his large number of videos where he pranks his kids. However, the pranks are considered abuse as the dad (and his wife) verbally attack the kids to the point of tears. Physical assault by the kids on each other is encouraged and a vast majority of the pranks target one of the boys named Cody.

untitled - Vin Diesel / Iron Giant

via Instagram

It's been well over a week since I posted any art. I have been spending a lot of time watching tutorials and work videos. But I have become more conscious that I'm consuming more than I'm creating.

This image is something I was messing about with. A very badly drawn Vin Diesel (looks nothing like him!) and the Iron Giant (he did the voice).

I feel I need to add a disclaimer about the giant. I'm still rubbish at drawing robots, so I went onto pinterest and used an awesome image by DKNG as reference.

Doodle - Edmontosaurus

via Instagram

Practice sketch of an Edmontosaurus Annectens.
Prehistoric Times posts requests for [free] artwork for their issues and the theme for July’s issue is Edmontosaurus and Kronosaurus.
I’m not use to drawing dinosaurs (I think I keep mentioning that) but I thought it would be fun to set myself a challenge to produce some art for it. They accept fan art from all ages, not just pro paleo-artists, so it’s not an impossible task.

I know Dino - Sabrina and Garret

via Instagram

I attempted to draw Garret and Sabrina from the palaeontology podcast I know Dino
I didn't put much importance on getting their likeness accurate, however I did find it very difficult to capture subtle details like their eyes and mouths.

A wet day for a Parade

via Instagram

I only did this Friday night (St Patrick’s day) and tweaked it on Saturday. I was surprised how quick the day went! The parade was short but I still managed to lose moat of my day!

The close up crop, I was just messing about with some post-production stuff.

There are a number of mistakes, but like the artist Jake Parker says, “finished not perfect.”

We swim together: Parade float boards

via Instagram

The two boards I did for the school's float in the St Patrick's day parade (2017). The school's theme was fish swimming together (I guess unity). All the kids were either dressed as fish or holding cardboard fish cutouts. The parents did a great job.

Too bad the weather was crap. It was lashing rain. The parade route was cut short and the whole thing lasted 30 minutes.

The woes of discovering a new follower

via Instagram

I have seen an artist do a little comic story with this Instagram feature, so I thought I would give it a try. I'm clearly not very creative or funny when it comes to short comic strips. (when it comes to these things, I'm always worried about spelling mistakes. There is probably a few here). 
*I added those little FB stickers which makes the strip a little funnier.

I have noticed more so over the past couple of months that I seem to get followers that are obviously fake accounts. Supposed beautiful women that have a link in their bio to chat with them (I don't click the link, so I can only assume it's a fake site too). I have experienced these kinds of profiles on Twitter and FB too (and as far back as MySpace).
They are clearly fake because the photos are of different random women. I even noticed that two accounts were high jacked. They still had photos of the original owners further down their time line.
