Harry Octopotterpus Revise


Click on image to enlarge.
This is an update from an earlier work. I liked the original but didn't love it. This falls more in line with the look I have going and I am much happier with it. I think I may do this with some other pieces when I get the time.

Stumbled across your site via Ryan's Jim. This stuff is awesome. TELL me you're published in picture books man, your stuff would go down a riot with kids.

Thanks Jo. I have 2 books but they don't reflect my current look as much as I want so I look forward to doing more in the future. It would be cool to be the author as well.

I like your work. You have a fun blog, man.

Jo Bling said...

Jim, I face the same predicament myself. Each of my picture books looks like it could have been done by a different damn artist! :-D Hope that I start getting known for one particular one in the years to come. Don't be a stranger fella, am gonna put a link to you on the blog,

Jim, thanks for your comment on my blog! I like your octopus very much. ;)

Thanks for the encouragement. Sometimes it`s easy to get frustrated when ones drawings don`t really come out the way one wants them to. Anyway, I`m linking you!!

wow this looks great! Nice job! I could picture an entire series with this kinda style, great inspiration stuff!

jim bradshaw said...

Thanks Stephen. Yeah, this style is fun. I want to do more in it. Got some ideas in my brain.

That's a good idea to go back and re-do some older work that you weren't happy with (instead of just throwing it at the wall, if you can).

I love your octopus.

Yeah Ben, it's actually fun to take previous art and mess around with it to try a different way doing it. I will be doing more of that whenever the muse hits me. Thanks for your comment.
