COAT OF SMILES, parody art of iconic symbols. A duck's hat, a mouse's ears and a smiling yellow button. Three iconic things brought together in one artwork.

Yellow cartoon hand glove hat

The trick is to prepare a cartoon duck for its job at the earliest opportunity. It is impossible to start enthusing young ducks too early.

Out of the blue

Algorithms are merciless

Or, when the parody "outdoes" the original. The other day, Mesolithic Mouse took over Mickey Mouse's hashtag. At least on Instagram, for about 24 hours. I noticed that only because the stats went through the roof.

Apropos of nothing. I added some facial colour to the rough draft sketch of Mesolithic Mouse.

Mini-Duck-Me

My first "atelier" was my parents' house's sitting room, late seventies, early eighties; under the giant glass block window, after having watched Disney's 'Robin Hood' at the old Schubert Kino. What a day that was.

A week with no weekend ended. Now comes Monday. Wohooo.

Anyways, here are now some rough duck sketches, for no particular purpose. Blending digital and analog sketching.

313 GTi

Another cast-out ride from Gearloose's garage, the 313 GTi. It indeed gives me great pleasure finding the finest locomotion for Donald Duck. Here, for this early development thingy, I even did a quick clean-up.

Gyro Gearloose's Garage

A few cast-out vis-dev sketches I did about two years ago, searching for the right visual tone or voice for the gadgetry.
