Stuff People Told Me To Draw

I tweeted and facebooked the fact that I'd bought a new A6 sketchbook and asked for people's ideas on what I should draw in it.

Below are the first ten suggestions that came in...enjoy!

One Good Thing - the comic (vol. 1)

Hey you cool dudes,

NEWS: I'm totally gonna have a comic out soon! It will be made up of the first month of my comic-diary-blog One Good Thing. I'm gonna to be selling them at £4 each. Not bad for 40 pages :)

I'll shout about them loads once they're printed, but for now enjoy these preview pictures and if you'd like to pre-order one email me (rachael(at)rachaelsmith.org).

Soz about the terrible quality of the pictures. I'm a cartoonist, not a photo-maker! xxx


Sooo...I'm pretty rubbish at keeping my own secrets.

I have quite an exciting illustration job in the pipeline but I don't want to talk about it properly on the interwebs until contracts have been signed and whatnot. (Because it probably will fall through knowing my luck!)

But I couldn't help but share this little detail of one of the drawings. I've fallen a little bit in love with this character. She's called Abbie and she's 15 years old. She's a teeny bit emo and gloomy. But hella cute, no?

Anyway, I'll let you know if it's good news, if it isn't I'll just stay quiet and sulk for a bit. And probably dye my hair like emo-Abbie.

Here's another character to add to the world Paul Banks and I invented on our recent pub trip.
Warkitty is subservient to Warbunny. And a little less angry.
He sure does love killing those mice though!!

If you missed the first Warbunny drawing then click here... OR HE'LL GET YOU!

Jadu characters

Here are a couple of cute little character designs I did for web content management company Jadu. They will feature in a promotional booklet. The girl is a designer and the boy is a developer.
Can't wait to see the finished product :)


Hey guys,
I wanted to share this character, Warbunny! He is one angry dude.
The idea for this guy came from a recent trip to the pub with the amazing designer Paul Banks.

I decided I would try to bring him to life...

Here's the sketch I did whilst in the pub:

Hopefully this isn't the last we'll see of Warbunny.
Watch this space!

Fish and Hamster card

This is the front of a card what I made for my friend David.
The fish is called Goliath and the Hamster is called Moet (based on real animals).
I might make a few more like this (but not as specific) as I kinda dig the style.
