This stormy weather has really got me in a doodling mood. With this rare day off, today I finally got a chance to sit down with pen and paper and draw out some ideas that have been floating around my head. I've been trying to reimagine books I loved as a kid, and experiment with different illustrative styles. I attempted a digital version of the boat scene, but my scanner wasn't working and the freehand digital version was a complete fail haha.

Still really into this line work. The character was inspired by a Spanish animated film trailer.

An idea based on the book, 'The Twenty-One Balloons'.
