Oh, oh, oh It's magic! A little retro vibe for this weeks #doodletuesdaychallenge with @andy_stonehouse_illustrator The Doodle Tuesday is an Instagram challenge initiated by Andy Stonehouse, just for fun, but, like the Inktober challenge, are a great way of stretching your creative muscle. Each week you are given a new word to doodle and post on your Instagram page. Magic has always been part of our family, with one of my uncles being a member of the prestigious Magic Circle in London. It was always cool when he came to visit. Image having an uncle who could make money come out from behind your ear. I never understand why he wasn’t fabulously wealthy. In a way, drawing ✍🏻 cartoons is a little like magic too. Making any object appear out of thin air with just a few waves of a magic 🪄 pencil.
