Once upon a time …. long, long ago, I took to sketching comic characters from the comics that I read. I filled one sketch book with my sketches and lost interest to start another book.
Last week, I found the long forgotten sketch book. It made me smile to see my attempt at bringing out my artistic talent all those years ago. I did have fun while it lasted and I was not too bad at sketching. My sketches may be amateurish but you will recognize the comic characters from The Beano, The Dandy, Archie and Jughead, and a few Disney characters too.
As the sketch book is 30 years old and may not survive more years, I took out my camera to photograph all the sketches and then post them here.
I started reading these comics in the late 1960’s and have always enjoyed them. I have written short summaries for each character and the time-line information searched from the internet.
Besides my sketches, I have taken up a new hobby in ‘Colours and Doodles’ the latest craze in town. Colouring helps to relax and de-stress me. My colouring books are fun, it’s filled with fantastic drawings just waiting for me to colour .
Thank you for taking the time to view these sketches and colouring pieces. Comments are always welcome.
