so you think you can tell

This is one of those drawings that I was moaning about in my last post. The idea was there. The will was there but somehow it hasn't quite worked out as I wanted. That's okay, though. This is another from the graphic novel idea that has been keeping me awake at night. The way I see it is that when I finally get a publishing deal for it I'll have to redraw them all anyway. That's when I'll get them just right. So, I suppose these are just warm ups.

By the way, on Monday I'll be listing a new little zine in my Etsy shop. It's a very limited edition, so I thought I'd let you know in case you would like to get your hands on one. I think they might go quite quickly.

I love you use of form and line -- the fishbowl has a good 3D quality and you can read a lot into the goldfishes eye :)
Very original. Good work -- hope you get the deal.

HI Andrea - I really like this - another drawing that becomes a story... storytelling...

I love the Pink Floyd reference with the title. "Two lost souls in a fish bowl" I always liked that line.

Thank you, folks.

JSturr, probably around 6 or 7. It took ages to decide on the fishbowl ornament.

It's quite frustrating as the scan has done it no favours. The original looks much better - more atmospheric. Honestly!!

Thank you all. I appreciate your supportive and kind words. x

I think it is because of the Crease through the Fish Bowl. I think it bothers your sense of Art.
