Goats, goats, goats. Nothing but goats here. This is so much fun to have you here. I have a whole lot of goat and their cheeky little kids here for you.

How did this all start?

Two things came together. I draw cartoons and we ended up with goats. I put the two together and bingo. We have goat cartoons. Then along came the 52 weeks Illustration Challenge on Facebook. You can find it here: 52 Weeks illustration challenge.

Every week there is a new challenge. It comes as a topic like Farm or Coffee. We then draw or illustrate something according to that theme. I made it my challenge to include my little characters, the three little kids. At times it is hard, but as the title said, it’s a challenge. If you can’t do it, skip it. You can always catch up later.

That’s how I got into drawing a lot of these goat cartoons. Since we have a few goats on our land they are a wealth of inspiration. They show me how they operate. They are curious and cheeky, like the cartoons. They want to know everything. Best if I put something new into the enclosure. Even better if its new and they can eat it. I always place branches in there for them to pull apart. Thats when you don’t hear a pip from them. They are all eating and nothing can disturb them except more food. It’s hard to find a goat that doesn’t want to eat any more. Then they are sick and we don’t like sick goats.

For now I let you explore this page and go back to my drawings. After all I’m better at drawing that writing stuff. Please like the page and come back often to see what’s new.

Cheers

Danny
