Merry Christmas!

Whoops, haven't posted in a little while. Here's a Christmas doodle for now! :D

In the Attic



Here are the three finished colour spreads from my latest university project, where I illustrated the text 'In the Attic' by Hiawyn Oram. The cat picture is tall because it is a fold down page in the dummy book. This was a super fun project, and working traditionally made a nice change from all the photoshop I've been doing!

There are mice in this post!

Here are a few sketches from the uni project I've been working on right now. It's the children's book project, which is super fun, but also super-lots-of-work.

Friday is Deadline Day

Hello! I've been busy with uni stuff (and it's only the beginning of the year :o), and the past two weeks we've been working on a book cover project. Here's my make-believe book. It's probably about some sort of storm...

Onwards and Upwards

Well hello hello :)

Sorry this blog has been a little quiet lately, but a combination of starting back at uni and not yet having internet in our new flat has made things more than a little awkward! Anyhow, the first week back is now over, and I actually have some work to show for it.


Basically, our first project entailed fishing a word out of an envelope and then finding different ways to illustrate it using various themes and whatnot. Can you guess what my word was? (highlight for answer: cars) I wasn't too thrilled at first, but now I think I've found a new favourite thing to draw... perhaps! :o

Hopefully the internets will be up and running come Wednesday, and I can get back to a better blogging pattern (and maybe even carry on with IF, if I have the time)!

Next project, Editorial! Tally hoooooo~

Ooooh *___*

I've just noticed Blogger's fancy new (I assume it's new) picture-clicking-ma-jig!
These are a few things I did over the break that I don't think I've posted here. They are, in order: Batman and his trusty sidekick Robin, A study of a Mary Cassatt painting, and a lady with a shrub-hat.

I'm on the train back down to University tomorrow! Term doesn't start for another couple of weeks, but it'll be fun to be back by the sea for sure! :D

Koala-bag!

I need one of these!

Mysteriousnessness

I wonder what lives in there?

The ideas part of my brain must be a little shrivelled at the moment, because it has been refusing to work all day (not good when you have a summer project that needs finishing).

Now to sleeeeeeeep. =_=

It Looks Sheepish

A wolf in sheep's clothing

I remember I did something on idioms back at a-level, and did a little sketch that was quite similar to this. I guess this is just how I always imagine this saying to be in my head! :o

Scribbles


Hallooooooo~ I was away without internet for the past week, but now I'm back! Not that much to update with yet, hopefully that will change shortly. Here are some scribbles for now :o

Bonjour!

Here is a picture of a fabulous lady I did recently. She is probably French. Also...



...Over the summer, I've been learning to crochet (I'm in full on Granny mode right now)! This elephant-thing was made following a pattern from this book, though the weird face was my very own addition.

Marble Man

This man collects marbles. You might call it an obsession.

He also looks a bit like Father Christmas - that's because he is his second cousin.

Perennial

I found a piece of (very) old watercolour board which made me want to do some 'real' painting, since I've been doing so much digital stuff lately. I'll probably update with a more colour-accurate version once I've twiddled around in Photoshop some more (although I quite like this cooler version).

That little thing eating her skirt is a baby tapir, by the way. I want one. :D

Orange and Blue... or Green?

Because orange and blue are simply fabulous together, and I felt like drawing a pretty (spooky) mermaid. Photoshop is such a good way to play with colour without making a mess everywhere.

Edit: So I looked at this on the other (better) computer and it is definately more greeny than bluey, and a lot more, erm, zingy...

I'm thinking...


...Oversized animals might be becoming a theme on this blog? Also a close-up so you can see how messy my digital stuff really is.

IF - Stay!

"Don't run away yet, I'm not finished!"

Illustration Friday, second week running ;)

Summer!

Yay for summer. Saying that, it thunderstormed for most of the day yesterday!

Ouch! - Illustration Friday

The best remedy for your pet dragon's bump on the nose is a good plaster.
I decided to do Illustration Friday! This way I'll post at least once a week... :o
Anyway this is a very simple take on the 'remedy' theme which is as much practising with photoshop as anything else! :D

I'm Still Here!



It's been a little bit too long, so here are some sketchbook pages to feed the blog monster.

Finally free, Gulliver and other things...

So, my first year of uni is over. It went faaaaaaar too quickly :o

This is the work from my last project - I chose to create a wordless narrative for a small section from Gulliver's Travels! This is the bit where Gulliver is found by the flying city, 'Laputa'. I was hunched over my laptop like Gollum for a good few days getting this done, but it was fun to do something different! :D

And here is some sketchbook work. Just because this blog might explode if a post doesn't have something cute in it.
