Cake and Doodle: Ancient Egypt #Sketch

Our Manchester based Character Designer Finbar Coyle and Background Artist Kirsten Shiel have set up their own weekly sketch meetup called Cake and Doodle which, as you can guess, involves delicious treats and doodling, two of our very favourite things!

The Cake and Doodle gang meet every Wednesday in a café to sketch and share their work over a coffee and some cake with a new topic set by Finbar and Kirsten every two weeks.


The topic in their last session was Ancient Egypt and they created this reference sheet to help inspire them:

Check out some of their designs below:
