Gizmo and Scatz

Having spent this week reviewing images for my talk I came across a couple of images that I did some time ago, which are quite cartoony in style, but I am still very fond of them. They are actually based on an old work colleague's pets: a cat and a dog. In my pictures the dog is called Gizmo and the cat Scatz, but his cat was the one that was actually called Gizmo and the name Scatz I made up myself. I actually showed them to Templar Publishing some six years ago now and they loved them, but the idea they had in mind did not, like many progress! They are rendered in a weird combination of ink (the line work) and oil glazes, yes I used oil paint to colour them! Enjoy...
