Let Your Mind Wander
I don’t plan most scenes before hand. I start with one item such as a finger tip, then make a pencil head next to it, and decide there should be a thumb on the other side. And I keep going from there.
The beak was inspired after I noticed a bird fly from the steps as I was going into work. When I got to my desk to do a 5 minute sketch exercise I was then thinking about the birds I saw at the zoo a few days before.
The head being kicked and the stick figures are inspired by my 3 young boys that like to play fight and shoot pretend guns all the time.
I’ll ask you to pretend that the website header and logo layout aren’t really on the paper.
