419. Pegasus!

November 22, 2010

November 2010.

Well, it’s been a while.  I haven’t had much drawing or writing time recently. Things have been chaotic, to say the least!

Here’s a little cutesy drawing I whipped up on the Gimp using my Eee PC netbook. Picture me drawing using a little touchpad thingamijig (sorry – I have no grip on the technical jargon!).



418. Young Woman In The Flowers

September 13, 2010

August and September 2010 – hand drawn on paper, edited in Photoshop Elements 6 on a Wacom Bamboo Tablet.

It is with much joy that I have finally, after a long break, completed a new artwork. From beginning to end I worked for at least a month on this design, in between homework, essay writing and several nasty viruses.

The flowers in the image are inspired by examples of south-east Australian wildflowers that I found in a handbook to the Australian bush.

At the time of writing, I am selling t-shirts, postcards and greeting cards featuring this design. It can be found at my RedBubble Profile and Bubblesite Gallery.


416. Work in progress

August 27, 2010

Here’s a screen grab preview of an illustration I’ve been working on for about two weeks now (in between study sessions and housework). I am hoping it will lend itself to a RedBubble t-shirt-friendly design.

The original fineliner outline was scanned and I have been using a brand new drawing tablet and Photoshop to clean and colour the image. It was inspired by a book I was reading at the time detailing wildflowers commonly found in Australia.

My desktop background is from Wikipdeia Commons and depicts Alamosaurus sanjuanensis. Just in case anyone was curious.

In other news, I submitted two short stories to a writing competition today. I’ve never managed to win so far but, as a compulsive writer, I’d be foolish to miss the opportunity!

360. It Had To Happen Sooner Or Later

June 14, 2009


Digital art, April 2009.

With the arrival of our new baby Netbook (an Asus Eee PC of some description – don’t ask me for specifics, because I’m not some tech head who knows this stuff), I took great delight in the novelty of playing with long-forgotten PC type stuff. We’ve been using a Mac Mini for a few years, so imagine my delight when my new Netbook came already armed with Paint. Hooray!

I proceeded to draw the first thing that came to mind. What you see here is the first creation I made on Paint on the new computer. I hope you enjoy its crude simplicity.
