Two stories, one card

Bless me father; it's five months since my last confession post. I hope this will be penance enough.
Season's greetings to anyone who might still be following this blog.

Dogs in vases 15

...or 55 on distant Tumblr, where these dogs are finally attracting some followers, after an extended period in the doghouse.

Dogs in Vases 14

This may be the 14th dog in a vase here but it's the 48th over on Tumblr. At least half are not remotely interesting but I quite like this one.

Dogs in Vases 13: Lassie

My Tumblr blog seems to be turning into an obsession, hence the dwindling number of non-dog drawings here.
On a more balanced note some new drawings, both dog and non-dog are now available on t-shirts at the Neatoshop. Hurray!

Dogs in vases 12: one dalmatian

You can see him larger on Tumblr, along with other dogs in vases that haven't had the misfortune to appear here.

This is a redraw of a sequence that was part of a book project I was working on for some years but, as usual, failed to finish. It was to be called 'Midas – a Touch Too Much'. Here we’re present at the moment when King Midas first tries out his golden touch. It would have led on to an extended ‘dance’ through the countryside of Phrygia as he touches everything he passes and turns it all into gold, culminating in his return to his palace carrying a huge pile of golden objects. The idea was for it to be printed in black & white and gold. Perhaps I should revive it now we’re living in the age of the superrich.

Dogs in vases 11: Westies

My Tumblr blog is still going. Here's one from that very blog as I've got nothing from this very blog. This was a rough drawing. The 'finished' version was neater but lacked something so I'm posting this instead. Why not? West Highland White Terriers as sunflowers.

Dogs in vases 10: Clarice Cliff

As if there wasn't enough rubbish on the internet these dogs in vases have been rehomed to their own blog on Tumblr, where they have more space. I think they've urned it. You can find them here: Dogs in Vases.
I thought of changing the name to 'Pooches in Pitchers' - or 'Pets in Pots' to widen the scope. 'Puppies and Jugs' would widen the scope a little bit too far probably. So I've stuck with 'Dogs in Vases' which more accurately describes the content (and the container).
I hope to be updating it fairly often, if not every day and what goes there will occasionally be here, if I come up with something funny. Come and follow if you're on Tumblr.
