Public Domain Characters Day 1
So I'm on my way to the Baltimore Comic Convention early tomorrow morning (come and say hello!), after which I'll be attending SPX, and will largely be away from computer screens for a couple of weeks as a result. Unfortunately, in a moment of foolishness this January, I resolved to post something every day this year. What to do, what to do?
Well, this. I have been thinking about public domain characters recently for one reason and another, and I stumbled across this jolly little website in my researches. Rather wonderfully, they've got a button you can press that will throw up a randomly-selected public domain character every time you whack it. So I hit it a dozen times, made a note of who came up, and belted out twelve little drawings earlier today which I'll be posting one at a time until I return from the Americas. These were totally random, so the uncanny suitability of a couple of them really took me by surprise.
Anyway, here's #1 - Xog, King of Saturn. I could draw this guy all day...
