catfish capers

Some time back I was involved in developing a children’s book. This meant I had to develop all the artwork based on content. This is the initial sketch developed for the story of a magic Catfish that took a boy on a midnight adventure. There were several issues with the drawing; legs too short, needed to be black boy, etc. However, these were corrected and the final was completed in photoshop to allow some texture manipulation. This can be seen below.

1 creative person, slightly matured
2 tablespoons aptitude
1 piece of aesthetic flavouring
6lbs hard work and sweat
4 ideas more than most
salt of the earth to taste

Take a creative person and stir in some aptitude, thoroughly from the start. In time, mix in the aesthetic flavouring with the most appropriate tool at hand, and then, fold into the mix as much of the hard work and sweat that the mix can take. Sprinkle in the ideas; the more the better. And finally, as all is cooking, a pinch of ‘salt of the earth’ to give it the necessary character. Leave to cook over time and serve when required. Tasty treat in a tasteless world.
