the mouse tales

Campground mice, beer festivals, and bus doodles

Over the weekend I went to the Mikkeller Beer Celebration in Copenhagen (You may recall that I made a comic about it, which you can read here), and stayed at a campground. Since I do a daily comic, I was intending to finish it ahead of time for those days, so that I could enjoy my beer and my tent with complete peace of mind. But of course, humans make loads of fancy plans and god guffaws, or however the saying goes, and I left Viborg having completely failed to draw any mice.

BUT buses were made for catching up on all the pencil sketches you failed to do before getting on them, and campgrounds were made for sitting at picnic tables and inking comics at dawn, and I would like to present the following three issues of The Mouse Tales as an example of what is still manageable on the go.

Meanwhile the beer festival was amazing and camping was fantastic. It rained a bit overnight, so I had to do some air-drying of my tent in the sun the next day before I could pack it up - but waiting for the tent to dry provided a perfect opportunity for inking some campground comics!

And some bus doodles. Is it kosher for people to put their feet up on the window of the bus?!?

Mice and lino

As many of you may know, I have a series of daily mouseventures and misadventures going on over at The Mouse Tales, and thought that my little troublesome mice would be a perfect subject for some more practice with lino!

Since I've kept the mouse pair apart and searching for each other for the better part of 2018 thus far, I thought it was only fair to reunite them for this lino print, doing their very favourite thing, which is dancing.

Cutie patooties.

I am starting to think about making mouse merchandise available during the second half of this year. Lino prints, cards, and other stationary will very likely be part of that! Updates to follow.
