McDad in Scotland

Father’s day drawing featuring: mist, mountains, a hairy coo, hiking boots, some pints and a pinch of silly.

Sums up our Scotland trip pretty well 🙂



I tried to draw my mom and me from a picture for mothers day. It didn’t turn out as good as I hoped… I really regret having done the outlines, it looked better without. But then there’s no ctrl Z on real paper…

I thought it would be nice to do a hand made gift after all those years. Because you do it when you’re little, remember?

I wish I had a jawline like that in real life though… Hahaha! Not.
