Fantastic. Lovely how you've got the characters but filled the whole page.

Thanks for dropping by, Clive! I really like your recent 'pub' drawings! Cheers! JVB

Clive said...

Actually, I didn't post the most recent ones. There is a subtle line you can't cross when drinking and drawing.

I feel like the guy in the last panel after driving to and from the studio today. I also like the way you pulled the attention to the guy and out of focused BG.

Hope you're well.

Yikes, Mike! Hope you haven't been 'asleep at the wheel!' Next thing we know, you'll be 'drinking and drawing' like Clive! 8-)

You have captured the moment!
Love the quality of the line.
Dynamic. Are you working at a smaller size?

the doodlers said...

Thanks for the kind words, Enzo!

FYI, I'm working in a small pocket-sized sketching moleskine (about 3.5 x 5.5 inches).

Cheers...JVB

I miss sleeping on trains. I'm always homesick after visiting your work.

great sketches, the brush looks so nice.

the doodlers said...

It's nice to hear our work makes you sick, Kris...for home, that is! ;-)

Thanks for the kind words, Pat!

Cheers...JVB

Oh, woops! That comment about the treatment of The Ferocious Beast didn't come out right...I didn't mean the series, but rather a stuffed version of it that Suzanne's kids gave 'the treatment' too. You'll have to visit her blog to see the excruciating details...

Hobo Divine said...

Whoa that is some heavy duty high quality super duper doodlin'!

Watch out GO Train! The Moleskine Paparazzi is loose!

Evan Bonifacio said...

Nice looking sketches! I need to get back on the sketching horse myself.. so thanks for setting a good example :)

the doodlers said...

Thanks, Jamie! I really like your latest posts, BTW. Very cool!

Glad you found the sketches inspiring, Evan. It felt good to get back to drawing after a long hiatus!

What comment was that, Clive? 8-)

Your compliment is much appreciated, c.b. I hadn't heard of Mr. Kley 'til now. Thanks for pointing him out to us!
