This? This grump-tastic lady is what you draw in your sketchbook after the mechanic tells you that mice have been gleefully wreaking havoc on various parts of your car ($$$) and that it's going to take some extra time to get everything fixed (!!!).
I caught an episode of "George Gently" the other night. Detective Sergeant John Bacchus is everything a crime-solver's sidekick should be: brash, presumptive, bungling, yet idealistic and strangely endearing. See Hastings, Watson, et all.
Drawing from some photo reference, attempting to nail down a character's shocked expression. Quelle Surprise?
And an octopus, for no other reason than that I like cephalopods. And speaking of marine life, I really, really, really want a pet jellyfish.
And I have company this week (huzzah) and some upcoming deadlines, so posting here and here might be a bit light for the time being. In the meantime, Happy September-ing!
