I've not drawn a comic strip this week, but my youngest came up with this instead.
She wanted to draw a comic strip herself and colour it in on the computer, just like she's watched me do. She was so eager to get to the colouring in part that I convinced her to just do a single drawing, but she still wanted a title at the top. Then she had great fun colouring it in, asking me to help her put gradients and effects everywhere!
It's a scene from her birthday, just over two years ago, when she was blowing out the candles on her birthday cake and her hair flopped over onto one of the candles, and set itself on fire. Being the good parent I am, I just kept the video camera rolling, thinking of the £250 I was going to get from Harry Hill!
She was fine! It made a right smell though.
