After Valentine’s Day, Patrick’s Day! For Patrick, I hesitated between the Leprechaun (gnome in the long red beard and green coats part of Irish folklore), a sheep and a four-leaf clover. Finally, there were more opportunities with the sheep and Guinness:)
The hardest thing was to imagine the head of a sheep. Yet this is not what is lacking in New Zealand! I opted for a slightly cartoon style, a head long and narrow, large eyes, but no facial features humanization (such as a smile or eyebrow).
First test: a sheep jumping over a Guinness, a mixture between the expression count the sheep and the fact that alcohol has a soporific effect (at least at high doses).

The second is more of a delusion: a bunch of sheep drinking the Guinness. This version has not yet been reworked … I’ll start as soon as I have time!
Bunch of sheep
The latter came to my working version of counting sheep I thought the coat looked like a lot of sheep in the foam of Guinness … where Irish Taste!

Happy St. Patrick’s all:)
Wow, sorry but I really neglected this blog lately. It must be said that between Christmas, New Year’s Day (two weeks on vacation wandering in the wilderness of New Zealand: South Island) and a few small contracts around, I forgot to publish my latest creations.
The last 2 months, I mostly spent time on my shops: Toon Shop (for Europe) and Toon’s Shop (for Canada / US / New Zealand / Australia). FYI, I created these through Spreadshirt shops last year but it took me some time to figure how to add new patterns and understand the Spreadshirt’s settings.
In short, I participated to the contest for Valentine’s day (I leave you with Besides judging the jury selection: The Winners – 2011 Valentine’s Day Design Contest ) which boosted me to create new patterns.
Here is my submission to this contest:

See you soon!
