Doodled away on one of the small Moleskine Cahiers I got yesterday with just a white Uni Posca paint marker. 9 x 14cm in size with 64 ruled pages inside. I promised my kids that they'd get the first ones I did so took requests from them.

My 5yo son wanted a spaceman, so here's Arthur with his canine companion Pants.

Yes, Pants. Why? Well my son's first word years ago was pants. In fact he said pants a lot. And at about the same time he also got a cuddly dog which, yup you guessed it, he called Pants. Pants still goes pretty much everywhere with us :)

You're doing a great job selling these Posca paint markers. I love what you've been doing with them!

I like the cross-hatching. It's a simple effect that really works well here in adding depth and making pieces pop in all the right places.

hehe, I'm enjoying using them :) The cross hatching was done with the smallest nib (it's about 0.7mm but in practice comes out at about 1mm) and after I'd done that it looked really confused so I ended up going around the main outlines again with a thicker nib.

Pants. Where did he get the word?

In the UK pants = underwear and I guess he was kinda thinking a lot about that when he first started talking :)

Yeah, kind of goes with that whole potty training phase so I guess thinking about getting out of a nappy and into proper, grown up underwear was kind of playing heavily on his mind at the time.

it makes for a nice childhood story though "guess what your first word was!"
