Been a busy day today sorting out a new design for wee Hoots Toots Haggis.
He's one of these wee characters that's been jumping around my sketch books for years, and for shame, even though i've set out a storyline and done a rough drawing mock up of a childrens book starring him, I haven't had time to finish it yet.
I keep getting asked - "when will ye finish yer book?" My stock answer being "when it's done".
I realise myself that it's just the way my mind works - I have quite a few different projects 'on the go' at once.
But, I do love him as wee character, and I love the droll story I dreamt up for him - so as 2017 beckons, I reckon it's time to release him into the wild!
In the meantime here's the new design with his sonsie wee face and featuring a line from Robert Burn's 'Address To A Haggis'. I have him up on Redbubble, Zazzle, and Cafe Press for the moment so feel free to give him a new home wherever in the world you are tuning in from!
Obviously i'll keep you up to date with Hoots Toots Haggis on here.
And here's wishing us all success with whatever schemes, dreams, and themes we have for 2017!
Whit's he up tae noo?
