30 days of creativity – Day 3 – Cats and Bugs

30 day creativity challenge Day 3, I am not in the mood to do anything at all really.

It’s been a weird one where I had to cut the deformed bits of wings off one of my newly hatched beetles. I’ve never done it before, it’s a big beetle and he has lots of legs that kept getting in the way. Anyway, he is eating banana like there is no tomorrow so maybe he knows something I don’t. He may or may not live. All these ones are called Mr Newton, they are Eudicella schultzeorum pseudowoermani.


I tried to draw some beetles but they kept moving, then I tried to draw the cat but he has bits of him so black there is nothing to draw.

He is a black hole covered in fur with sharp bits and a stinky end. He is Scumspawn, and he is obsessed with bread. The other cat kills mice and birds, he kills crusts and baguettes. If you leave the bread bin open there will be no bread. He tries to climb into the oven whilst it is toasting toast. He can eat half a packet of crumpets and then it’s only the packaging that is stopping him from finishing them off. And bread makes him fart.

crap day, crap drawing

Anyway, it’s a crap drawing on a crap day, but at least I did something.

30 days of creativity – Day 1 – Plane Trees Collage

Inspired by the very talented and therefore somewhat hated by me Diana Powell, who is blogging a drawing every day for 30 days I’ve decided to get off my fat and lazy, binging on 30 Rock box sets arse and do something creative every day for 30 days.

I’m not a sticker, I’ll hate this by tomorrow but I thought it best to start today rather than wait.

So, here is day 1, it’s a collage of plane tree bark made from music manuscript, braille paper, wrapping paper and sugar paper. There is also bit of a book about the grand masters I liberated from a skip with the idea of printing on it. Plane trees are the ones with the camouflage trunks, and the ones with the pom pom seed heads. I’m using my Moleskine sketch book which is just under A6 size for the 30 day challenge.

Being me, I see loads of cocks in it.
