euro distraction doodle

by emmaillustrates

a little bored a couple of weeks ago by the second half of england v italy in euro 2012, i got kind of over focused on the huge 40th birthday present i was wrapping and made this sprawling doodle across the front of it.

what fun to just scribble and see what comes out, no pencil underneath, no plan, just a pen and lots of kraft paper.  it’s about 2 feet square so there’s all sorts of stupid detail in there if you feel like zooming (like mountain goats, swifts, a devil rabbit giving the gift of wine to the world, a coastline and the birth itself in 1972)…  just don’t tell him what the gift is, it’s a surprise!
