Chicken Or BeefBefore doing any digital work we love drawing with real color on real paper on our travels! This makes the digital process much easier and pretty faster later on. Made this sketch at the beach of Magnetic Island/Australia being fascinated (shocked?) by deadly boxjellyfish on the one hand and by eating salt and vinegar potato chips on the other. Get this sticker twice as part of our Jotopia Stickerpack at KatRock’s superstore ChickenOrBeef.de!

Recovered an old drawing of my good friend “DBS” in the sketchbook. A nice reminder of a pretty cool trip to Ireland together with him and Mr. Jones a few years ago… Cheers!
