The Boy in the Flowerbed


The two above are older drawings that I've just reworked a bit. Everything below is new.

It's a greenhouse from the top (this is part of 6 drawings that'll make sense all together)

These first 3 are going to be used as mini-title pages. 

These three are the character pages. 

Obviously everything needs to be coloured and written up. Colouring is first on the menu. Next week environments (they're in progress) will be up.


There was once a garden. 
The most beautiful and bountiful garden any one had ever seen. 
There were bright purple orchids, tulips and violets.
Red peonies and sunny daffodils and a lawn so green.
 The garden was owned and kept by a sour old man 
Who only smiled when the flowers sang for water from his old green watering can. 
Then one day a dog, a creature crafty and playful by nature 
He crept into the garden whilst the old man was reading the paper. 
The dog loved to dig, and dig he did until he could dig no more. 
He dug deeper and deeper and deeper until his furry paws were sore.
When the old man looked he found the dog looking proudly at a freshly dug hole.
He scowled and frowned and began to yell at the dog 
When he saw the state of his grand prize perennial. 
The dog took turn and fled, but the man had a feeling 
He'd not seen the last of that dogs' shaggy grey head...
