The wild animals you find on your next safari are more sophisticated than you imagine! Read on…

It may be of interest to you peeps, to know how I work on an illus­tra­tion. Of course, if you're not inter­ested you can just view the first, fin­ished image, and then close the slideshow.

et voila! The finished art

If you'd like to see more of how I work and how you can devel­op your own draw­ing skills, check out my Cre­at­ive Car­toon Club . I run 'Can't Draw, Can Draw!' work­shops and pro­gress­ive work­shops for those who want to devel­op their art, but don't know how.

PS My work­shops are all great fun. Nobody is made to feel bad about their work, only good.

  1. Miko, I abso­lutely love your draw­ing style! I love see­ing now oth­ers work too. I have a sim­il­ar pro­cess to yours, so now I feel bet­ter for some reas­on ha. You are so tal­en­ted! You're gen­er­ous to show us how you work.

      Hi Leslie and how won­der­fully kind you are. Yes its import­ant look­ing at oth­ers work, one can learn a great deal. In my work­shops for the new cre­at­ive I always main­tain actu­al copy­ing is good, as longs as its not repro­duced as their own!! But this is how we learn to talk, mim­ick­ing, copy­ing. Then patiently work at devel­op­ing ones own per­son­al cre­ativ­ity. I'm glad we share the same meth­od. From pen­cil to fin­ished art, its the only way I know ;-). As you know we have to work very hard at tal­ent and as far as gen­er­ous, not really, its import­ant for me to get feed back. Keep in touch, I'd like to see your work if I may.
