Border Collie dog cartoon art - sorta, vaguely, kinda, after Picasso...

One of things that is so neat about ACEOs (Art Cards, Editions and Originals) is that their only restriction is size. They must always be 2.5" x 3.5" - apart from that small thing, there ARE no restrictions! They can be made from any material - glass, paper, canvas, polymer clay, pasta, dried mud, plasticine, clay, marshmallow - you name it, you can make an ACEO from it. (Although the marshmallow one might not last too long in this house...).

This is not restricted to materials - they can be created using any style and any technique - watercolors, oils, acrylics, crayons, pencil and so on and so forth.

I've just decided to have a go at cartooning - and I like it! But to start with, I'm doing them ACEO size so they don't seem like such a huge (and intimidating) venture. Below are a couple of the results of this new direction.

The first one: "But, but... I didn't do it!" is very sorta, vaguely, kinda, after Picasso...

And the second one: "She wants a drink of water" is a scenario which is scarily familiar...

My usual artwork - in ink and watercolor - can be found on prints, greeting cards, t-shirts, tote bags and more brill stuff through the following links:
