Space Boy And Teddy
The Coffee Break Sketching Challenge - let your imagination flow during your coffee break!
This wee character has been floating around in my head for a while. A space boy and his teddy zooming off through the galaxy to school. Wee teddy is hanging on to his leg so he doesn't float away.
I don't know if i'll do any major changes - maybe give teddy a pair of goggles etc...but I certainly love the experimentation that developing a new character brings.
Sometimes characters come out of the blue fully formed, sometimes they are an amalgamation of other bits and bobs that i've drawn. Maybe he's based on myself as a kid - I took a teddy bear with me each day for the first year of primary school...and also wore a bobble hat that my mum knitted me too, summer through winter.
I think I even wore that hat to bed!
Perhaps, looking back, I was a wee bit eccentric. But as I say, accept and embrace what makes you different and unique. There's only one you in this galaxy, and we're all the better for having you here!
Hope you're being creative with your own sketches!
See ye tomorra,
Whit's he up tae noo?
