Spotlight on: Mrs P. and Da Squirrelz

Mrs P. and Da Squirrelz

I’ve wanted to introduce these characters for ages now. I first featured “The Squirrels” in a post called Enter the squirrels a while ago and I always liked the idea that they would sneak up and steal something, especially under the noses of the Westies. They also tend to give Mrs P., Casper’s owner, a hard time by scurrying in over the wall from the trees to steal her cooking equipment or raiding her kitchen for her specially baked deserts and treats.

Poor Mrs P. and Casper have a hard time as they are outnumbered and over-run by a motley gang of young hooded squirrels, or more commonly known in the borough as “Da Squirrelz”. Casper and the other Westies usually manage to save the day and her delicious baking by coming to the rescue with some cunning plans.

Hmmm… I wonder how the Westies can retrieve her beloved baking utensils and delicious cupcakes this time?

Hear the Westies WoWL!

Spotlight on: Casper, Lücky, Billy and Basil

I was inspired to do some more sketches and focus on Casper on the Gang, working on their individual characters and highlighting some distinguishable features! Casper, the instigator of the group is urges the gang to move west and seek new adventures. Lücky (who I’ve dubbed as a German Westie now living in London, hence the umlauts above the “u” in his name) is happy to ponder life and go with the flow although he can be quite cautious and nervous at times.

Billy, as always, is happy to relax and snooze while his deck of playing cards are close at hand (he’s always ready for a game of cards with the pigeons). Basil, the youngest of the group still gets excited wherever he goes on their adventures, and leaks a little too!

A Westie Christmas!

I was recently commissioned to produce a Christmas greeting card for Skywire.co.uk, with the Westies taking control of the office and getting up to all sorts of mischief. Happy Christmas and hear the Westies WoWL!! :)

New Year, New Character!

New year, new character!

I’ve been sketching this new character for a while and I thought it would be the perfect time to introduce her into the Westies of West London cartoon. She’s a dear old lady by the name of Mrs P. (no-one knows her full name!) who lives in West London and loves two things in life: her draft of Guinness and her faithful beloved dog Casper.

Happy New Year and hear the Westies WoWL!
