Scribble of the Week #001

My sketch books are forever filled with random mind scrawlings and scribbles that will otherwise never be used for anything or be seen by anyone, because of this I bring you Scribble of the week.

Scribble of the week is a weekly feature(on and off probably) where i'll be posting a random sketch, scribble, design or element from one of my various sketch books, these will always be unfinished pieces of work and will often, most likely, be very eclectic.

Recently I discovered a lot of my old sketch books, notebooks and old photographs had been ruined by an unfortunate leak in my garage. This horribly aggravating event coupled with the fact I recently went through my current sketch book and stumbled upon a lot of unfinished and finished sketchs and illustrations i'd completely forgotten about has inspired me to start up this potentially weekly feature.

This particular piece of work is of my dear(seven and a half month) son, Marley. I drew this about 3 months ago when he was distinctly more babyish than he is now. It's a silly scribble but was quite a lot of fun.

The characters around him represent some of his favourite toys and the bottles, ofcourse, representing his one true desire at this stage in life. The concept in my mind at the time was to make a sort of pseudo heavy metal album cover with an obvious sense of irony.

For comparison, here is a photo of the little chap himself, taken around the same time.
