Dream of being a cartoonist

Eons ago I thought of becoming a cartoonist. I even had a strip in a few small newspapers for a while.  But plans change and other stuff took over.  I guess the kids' books have been the later expression of that dream.   Never the less here is a sketch I found from that time.  I did have a beard and I often was stuck for ideas not realizing that they were never very far. Some things never change. Except the beard.  It's gone.

Royal Agricultural Winter Fair 2014

I went today to the Royal with my students for a day of sketching. Didn't get much done other than assisting students, but then, that's what I was there for.  However near the end of the day there was some time to myself. Posted below are a few done for myself.  Wish I had time to return.
