Mike’s Universe Studio

Hey hey hey. It’s me drawing myself in my studio drawing myself in my studio. WAAH.

Here’s a pic I took of what the actual space looked like. I didn’t use it as reference for the drawing (that’d be a little drab and not as fun), kind of similar-ish:

Spring is here and today was majestic marvellous magnificent kiff. Took a bike ride through town and found a vacant plot of land where I stopped for a second and did a quick sketcheroonie of Robberg in my mini sketchbook. Coloured in Photoshop once I was back.

Mike’s Universe

sketchbook_mu_v1

Banana for scale.

Every now and then when I get the feels, I draw some ‘Mike’s Universe’ stuff. They’re real-life comics / scenes mostly. I got super inspired to do so back in 2002 when I saw James Jarvis‘ pic in an in-flight magazine my dad got for me:

The James Jarvis pic that got me into using Photoshop.

Most days I pop into Le Fournil, a coffee shop / restaurant in Plettenberg Bay. My buddy James spends time working from there and I’ve come to really dig the cappuccinos there. It’s also a nice place to sit and doodle. So, I drew myself sitting and doodling at various spots there in ma spiffy new sketchbook, and then scanned them and added colour in Photoshop.
