Denna's Day Out 2 RGB

When originally conceiving the idea for this comic back in 2015, this was one of the first ideas I had, and I still really like it now. Most cartoon characters who live by the or on the sea find a message in a bottle, but maybe not quite like this one! Check back the first Monday of next month for the next comic.

I’m working on some greetings card designs. Here’s two characters that haven’t made it onto one of the designs, but I really liked the way they looked, so I thought I’d share them here. Next Monday a new Denna’s Day Out will be posted, so stay tuned for that!

Denna's Day Out 1 RGB

Well here we are. Two years ago I tried a weekly webcomic about a little girl sailing the seas in a small boat, but due to the taxing schedule, I stopped after seven weeks. Now with completely re-drawn strips, I will continue and complete Denna’s journey with monthly updates. So please join Denna the first Monday of every month for her day out! Enjoy!

In 2014, I attempted a webcomic, but after seven weekly updates, I stopped. Next month I will be starting it again with a monthly schedule, totally re-drawn, with a few of the old ideas and loads of totally new ones. Please check back on June 5th for the start of Denna’s Day Out!

Daft Character 48

For this Daft Character, I used a Japanese brush pen which is a great pen as you get the control of a fine liner but the line variation of a brush. I’m intrigued as to whether this pen would liven my comics up a bit, but I’m so used to using fine liners I’m not sure yet. I spent a lot longer on this DC as I kept scanning it during the creation process, so I can use it as an example in a ‘How to make Daft Characters’ section of a mini-comic I’m making.
