This painting is where my cute-sketch style has started to infest my real paintings. This initially was an idea for a birthday card, that was changed to a normal sailing ship. The bordering is a more baroque stile to match the age of the sail.
Completely new and original character designs. "Sponge Robert Rectangle-Pants", "Patty", "Squidworth" and "Superb Martin Brother". This is a perfect study on how more detail always means better character design.
I made another font. This one wasn't for a book this time, but just for fun. I like the font Grundschrift. I wanted to make something a little like that, but I put the way I like to write things into it. (Hence the name "GrundsChrisft") When printing, I like to write like this, except I don't usually write my zeros with a slash nor my nines with a curly foot. But it was too tempting. There are a lot of differences with "Grundschrift" of course, it's not a copy, but mostly different is the tight kerning. Anyhow enjoy.
So I tried to do a sort of political satire painting. It's not quite what I wanted. It doesn't really look authentically old timey enough for me, but I tried. It was hard for me to continue this painting, really hard. It sat in limbo for months and slowly the references are slowly becoming irrelevant. This was even before the "Red-White-and Blue Brexit" statement.
