Cute, even more so as we have Bubby running around, although he is getting a bit heavy to lift like that.

It's all about the pivot point NF. I'm still managing it with a 2 and a half year old (not my own).

This is such an adorable image.

No seriously Elliot, your stuff never ceases to amaze me :)

Elliot Cowan said...

Don't be too amazed.
I spend approximately 1 minute into each one and spend almost no time thinking about them beforehand.
They are fancy phone doodles.

LeeLoreya said...

that's the good thing, spontaneity no?

I find rather intriguing the perfect roudness of the figures, i can imagine your arm just doing the faintest of movements, not concentrating on the drawing too much, and there, the perfect curve.

Elliot Cowan said...

Leeloreya - I can assure you it is a great deal less aethestic than that.
If it's of any interest to you, I actually use fairly broad swooping movements when I draw, as I tend to draw from my shoulder rather than my wrist.
And I actually pay very little attention to the image as I draw it, as I find concentrating on what I'm doing is a really good way to create something I don't like.
But if it helps to perpetuate the myth, I do all my drawings in a garrett by candlelight while sipping red wine.

How very Da Vinci of you.

May I put in a request of having a wikkid Elliot-style portrait done?.... or not?

Elliot Cowan said...

Sar - if you are asking if I would do a caricature of you I'm sure I could manage that.
I would require you to use the word "wikkid" in it's correctly spelt form however.
I think that's what you are asking, correct?

Anonymous said...

Yup. Correct.

I would like you to create a wicked caricature of me. Exactly as you think I look like.

Why don't you like the spelling of "wikkid"?

Elliot Cowan said...

Because it's spelt "wicked".

LeeLoreya said...


how about "your sketches are so kewl and kute"?

Anonymous said...


They're wikkidly kewl and totally kute!

Sorry, I couldn't resist ;)

LeeLoreya said...

i think he might be running in circles around the room like a posessed person by now.
