Merry Christmas to our customers and friends from all at the Scottish Cartoon Art Studio!
Hard to believe a year has passed since the relaunch of the website. We’ve worked hard to add to it on a regular basis but inevitably when deadlines have mounted around us we had to concentrate on more urgent matters. Hopefully all the main pillars are now firmly in place and from here we can simply have fun with the site. Our recent post about The Dandy is a good example of the sort of thing we’d like to put together more often.
It’s been an interesting year with several unusual projects coming our way. The Golden Jubilee gave all the Studio team a rare opportunity to focus on the same face, especially when our friends in St. Just-le-Martel issued a rallying call for caricatures of the The Queen. The Olympics brought us into the creative community of Kilmacolm, working with local children and illustrating a book of their stories. That was just part of a bumper year for workshops that saw us travelling to Ayrshire, Lanarkshire, Renfrewshire, Stirlingshire and around Glasgow to draw with young people in libraries, museums, schools and community centres. And we’ve been illustrating everything from heavy-duty reports for local authorities to bright and colourful leaflets for visitor attractions.
Here’s some recent reactions from breitling replica customers.
On our gift caricatures:
“Many thanks to you for the finished article. Michael thinks it is ‘bitching’! We love it too and so does everyone else who has seen it. The attention to detail and the likeness is fantastic.” – K. McGregor, Motherwell
On our live caricatures:
“Just a quick note to thank [Chris] for his artistic work on Saturday evening, our guests thoroughly enjoyed the experience and were delighted with the results.” – S. Wilson, Paisley
On our cartoon workshops:
“[I write] to reiterate how excited the children were after the event and that they carried on drawing and talking about heroes and villains as well as reading about them. The adults were also very impressed as they learnt quite a lot as well regarding colours etc. Both teachers wish to express their thanks for a wonderful breitling replica event. I think this event could go down well in many other libraries.” – Fallin Library, Stirling
We’re already underway on more projects to be unveiled in 2013: new promotional cartoon characters; factual comic strips; further sequences of children’s workshops; and, as ever, the Fizzers collection just keeps getting bigger!
See you in the New Year!
