Bernie and the Builder

I've been building a patio for the last 3 weeks - can you tell? I've got cuts, bruises, morter rot, sand fly, berri berri and stomach cramps - just from moving the bloody slabs! Used my pain as an inspiration for this cartoon, which was inked using Dip pens and indian ink.

Meet Bernie. Bernie is my daughter's cat, and he's a maniacal bundle of fur, held together with fat and attitude. Trouble is, he's got such a cute face! As above, inked using Dip pens and indian ink. In both cases, I'm using a manuscript mapping nib for the drawing, Speedball b5.5 for the outline (really needs a thinner outline, say a b6).
