week 9 – tree #illo52weeks

 

I really enjoyed doing this one, perhaps a little dark (read heavy handed with the watercolor), but am already working on another.

#illo52weeks  week 8 – crosshatching

elephant grooming

Also playing a  little catch up with week 7 with watercolor.  I worked over the watercolor with ink. I think I would like to do the girl and boat image again in another medium too.

#illo52weeks Week 7- Watercolor

I went through a looot of images and played around with lots of things but in the end, I  ended up with something fairly simple.

#illo52weeks  Week 6- Machinery

This was a hard one in terms of trying to lighten the image that I wanted to do- seems pen lent itself quite well to this kind of imagery, but it did get a bit heavy. Trying to lighten it by making it a bit playful. Still considering adding color.

At the same time I was working on a more lighthearted one-

#illo52weeks  Week 3- Caravan

I had a bit of trouble with this one. I envisioned a caravan of people moving along but I didn’t like what was coming out of my pen. When I saw what others were putting up as their ‘caravan’ most had chosen to go with an actual caravan and showed me another way of looking at it and interpreting it.

Happy New Year! To start off 2014, I have joined the 52 week Illustration challenge where I endeavour to do a themed illustration every week. I missed the first week but week 2’s theme is kids.

This was a really fast study of my daughter in one of her quieter moments-

I have finished the latest illustrations I have been working on and am still in drawing mode which is a great thing!  Sometimes I feel a little burnt out but this time round I feel like the sky is the limit and there’s just so much possibility.

Today my youngest daughter did the funniest thing and I made a mental note to sketch it out once she had gone to bed, this is the result 😉

It’s been a while since I have updated anything but have been working on a new set of illustrations that I’m really enjoying doing!

I have had a longer time to work on them so I feel like there is more of me in them than perhaps some other images.

Here’s a sample of what I have been working on-

Keep an eye out in the near future for the book!
