the pack survives

I -finally- scanned in a bunch of my doodles from 2017, and I’m going to slowly post them beginning with this one:

wolf copy

(Lamy pen on proper sketchbook, lightly edited)

The end of the year and the start of a new year is always a great time to be extra introspective – I say extra because I think I am always pretty introspective, I am always (over)thinking, looking into myself perhaps almost a little too much.

Over the coming year I hope I can look outwards a little bit more… and think of the pack.

That is going to be very difficult, and just to demonstrate how much I dislike human beings, here is part of a “poem” that I wrote some years ago:

People of the world
I must confess
That at this moment
I hate you all

…Yep.

The lone wolf dies, but the pack survives

if I look back

Something from earlier this year. I’ve found myself needing to remind myself of this mantra a lot this year, and it is much-needed now with all the recent welling up of self-doubt. Sigh.

This is of course Daenerys’s mantra which is also a recurring one in her journey. I may be no mother of dragons but I’d certainly like to grow as much as she’s done.

These were separate multiple attempts to sketch Dany but which I realised also sort of worked together as a sequential panel.

wolf-2014-2015 sketch

Finally, something recent! \o/

Last week, in the midst of closing submissions hell, I decided to stick it to the man and use the office scanner to scan in my new-ish doodles. This one is from late 2014 / early this year… when I was still in the midst of my ASOIAF / GoT obsession. (I still like it of course, but I’m no longer walking around with my nose buried in the book.)

Decided to give it a little snazz too… pleasantly surprised that I still sort of knew how to use Photoshop!!
