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!

415. Dancing Cat

August 13, 2010

Pencil on paper, September 2009.

I am not sure what to write about this. I guess I wanted to draw something a little bit cutesy. I like cats, and think they’re cute. Hopefully,  I upped her cuteness level by adding a skirt and a curtsey.

413. Light on Stormy Sea

Felt tip marker on paper, October 2009.

I get a lot of enjoyment out of drawing with felt tip markers. Nothing quite beats their bright colours and strength.

412. Suburban Evening

July 23, 2010

Ink fineliner and pencil shavings on paper, February 2010.

I love blackbirds singing in the evening. I love the feeling of connectedness that comes from seeing street lights shining in other parts of town from the windows at the back of our house. I love the bats.

I was trying to capture that sense of both belonging and the fall of night. I get this strange feeling that I’ve posted this illustration before!

Ink fineliner on paper, October 2009.

I like cats, and I like acoustic guitars. Here’s both at the same time.
