Coloring Bluto with Colored Pencils

Do kids in this era even know who Bluto is? Doesn’t matter. They know what bullies are. And Bluto’s the quintessential archetype of a classic bully. Bluto_colorscrop

Run Red Run and I talk a little about Popeye, the Bluto/Brutus name switch, and about my eleventh hour decision to try crosshatching with colored pencils. Honestly, I didn’t even plan on finishing this doodle. But it is what it is and I am what I am.

But this past Thursday, we had fun trying out ink wash technique for the very first time with a quick illustration of Scooby Doo’s creepiest monster, The Spooky Space Kook!
