Minnie the minx by Jim Petrie a closer look..expressions part 2

Beano Dec 23rd 1978

Back from my holiday from not as many blog posts this Month..
I've took with me my 1977/78 Beano's and marvelled at the artists talents what great craftmanships..
This one stood out look how Jim has captured so many different expressions of Minnie..two different looks in each panel..
Jim must of used a mirror..
loved the tongue of Minnie used in a fun way...also the rapid nod side to side of the head on the top of the page 2...also what fun to see them all as turkeys!!
All artists including me should try and copy some of these expressions...
Jim really made each panel different and the characters..

Minnie the minx by Jim Petrie a closer look..

Beano 1968 23rd Nov

Look at this wonderful panel...blinking at the top then eyes looking downwards..what a clever originla use of falling down a manhole gag..

Two different perspectives...a nice mirror image..
Also nice touch of the father doing his shoe lace by leaning on the dustbin...
we don't see G.P.O signs now!
Love the Dad squashed up in a over the top way nose peeping out..
also the over the top leap of eyes seen as its also a great low angle used on both panels..

Also nice the follow could see this in a animation...

Hope the newer artists in The Dandy study past comic artists like get new ideas for there own comic character...

Another point is how Jim draws hands...they are really good and different each time..
