Slack Alice and the flowerpot girl!

Where do these names originate, I wonder? I remember the comedian Larry Grayson had some characters like Everard and others whose names elude me at the moment, but maybe Slack Alice was one of his? I seem to be creating characters lately – maybe because it’s quicker to draw them than write them… Since I scanned this page in this morning, that song, “Here come the girls…” has been running through my head.

Flowerpot Girl and friends...

(Maybe I should have called it “Here come the heads!”) The last time I got the Kelly Kilmer watercolour journal out, I created ‘Blue and the Jesterbird’ with heartbreaking emotion behind it. She’s now on available in T-shirts, etc. as is Do you ever feel out of “synch?” I chose to zazzle because I received a mug and a mousemat from friends for Christmas and I was really impressed with the quality of their merchandise.

After carving the Woodcutter’s daughter from the “nearly Naomi” sketch, I realised that I am enjoying my character creations immensely. I have ideas for a book featuring Blue and the Jesterbird, using the whole story behind her invention, but that takes time to develop.

In the meantime, I shall continue to sketch and draw ‘people’ like the Girls. I give credit for the fact that there are 5 on the page to Milliande – she used a circles template in one of her art journals last year to draw multiple simple faces on a spread and I did that (using a spaghetti measure!!!) last night.

The flowerpot girl is my favourite – pretty, slightly Zetti and I think she’d make a cute card! If I offered these drawings for sale as digital stamps, (like Lily’s Octopode designs), in a PDF format for you to print out, would you buy them? I’d put them up in my Etsy shop… Just asking!
