It has been two decades since this little three antennaed creature first showed up in my sketch book. He had a name - for no particular reason, I called him Taraniki - but I never knew what his story was. Nevertheless, I kept drawing him. I always seemed to be drawing him entering mysterious temples, wandering in the desert, or exploring snowy climes. He was always questing.
When I decided to participate in a drawing challenge in late 2019, I brought Taraniki along. I figured illustrating his adventures would be a good way to figure out his story.
A story of sorts showed up: unsurprisingly, he’s entering temples, wandering the desert and exploring snowy climes.on collection.
More than that, I haven’t discovered much about him. He’s still questing, still exploring. Still looking for home, I think.
I did discover that I still enjoy drawing him. But I guess that much was obvious.
Anyway, here’s a book full of little Taraniki drawings, and musings - notes I expanded on from the official drawing challenge prompts.I hope you enjoy these little ink spot sketches of this little character who is so embedded in my mind... and maybe now yours?rtoon collection.
