My New Friend

I've always wanted one of these little wooden guys and the last time I was in an art store they just happened to be stacked strategically in an 'impulse buy' display formation. Naturally, I caved and have been happily contorting him/her/it ever since.

Tonight I started playing around with some basic movement sketches (mostly, because I've been a bit too tired during the last few evenings to tackle another pen and ink drawing). I'm a bit disappointed that my little figure has some unfortunate limitations (no hip/leg rotation!), but it's been fun to figure out the poses anyway.

This one is T's favourite:


  1. Ooh, I've always wanted one of those, too!

    LOVES the sketch!!! The torso twist, the arms... awesomeness.

  2. Thanks, Grace! I'm hoping that I can get him to do some funky break dancing moves, but that might be asking a little much!
