Over the Christmas holidays, a number of folk asked me to draw portraits for them as Christmas presents! I happily obliged, and here they are:
If you like the possum comics, you'll love this zine - with 8 never-before-seen possum comics, and new commentary, printed on fantastically textured recycled paper!
Available now on Etsy!
I splashed out on good printing - flip side is I need to shift 20 copies to break even, but it's worth it, the zines came out looking so good, and I really think anyone who's liked the comics I've posted so far won't be disappointed when they get theirs. I'll even leave a thank you doodle in your copy if you order one! Shipping is free to the UK, or £1.00 internationally.
One of the best parts is how the price turned out - it's £4.20, cos "lol weed", but it turns out that is $6.90 in Canadian. The price is the magic number in two currencies! So additional lulz there!
If you know anyone who also likes cute animals and relatable nihilist humour, this would make a pretty good gift!
It started out as a couple of doodles for my Instagram (@timsplosiondoodles), but soon I had 12 of them and I wanted to make them into full comics, so I did. If you're a big fan of cute animals and existential dread, then you'll probably like these!
Back in 2014, I sketched out a comic I was toying with, about a werewolf and a fox. I always wanted to finish it, and coming back to the UK, I found the sketchpad with the original drawings and decided to finally get it done. Enjoy!
These started as little doodles done to amuse myself, but I eventually built up enough of them to put together a whole asdf/Vine compilation style video for them. I'm actually really happy with some of the animation in here too - particularly the first skit and the "get out of your own head" skit.
So I've been commissioned by a senior lecturer at the University of Northampton recently to draw up character images for them to use in demonstrations of various principles of social work and the impact of race, income, and gender on various aspects of people's lives.
There's a few more images to come in this series, but these images cover every character involved in it.
I decided to rebrand the Facebook page I had set up for "This is Normal" so that it was for my animation and cartoon work as a whole rather than just that one property. To this effect, the new cover image - shown above - features original characters to help get across more of the styles I normally work in, including the girl from Grave Mistake, Sprakle, and Doctor Chaotic - who I am still planning on making something with sometime this year.
Another reason for this is that I am likely to be starting a Patreon campaign soon to help bridge gaps between work. It simply makes sense to have a single base on each social media platform, and having the TiN page already there just made sense to use for Facebook.
