After yesterday’s post “Gilbert & Percival” I thought my dragon period would be over.I was quite uninspired when I picked up the pencil for drawing 174, I couldn’t get into the idea of another dragon. So I started to draw a warrior. I was pretty much finished him, but he was staring at a blank page. I was stumped. So I turned to Karen…my inspiration for all things silly.
At first I believe she suggested something about a giant caterpillar, then she started throwing out ideas. “A dragon caught stealing cookies” was one of her ideas that kick started my brain…and as this was supposed to be a ‘daily dragon’ I jumped all over that, and so Sid and Teemu were created.
