Those zines I’ve spent the past few months working on are almost ready for packaging up. It’s a limited run of 50 sets that I’ll be sending out as self-promos. I’ll be posting some for sale and will keep you in the loop. If you know any #artdirector after some #teen to adult #gothic #alternative#illustration, please ask them to contact me with their details and I’ll send a complimentary set over.

20 minutes…You can probably guess what this one is all about. In other news, I’ve just eaten 3 apples.

Warm Up Sketch 16/08/2017 – House 3

Drawings, Techniques, Warm Up Sketches

Forgot to post this from yesterday – 20 minutes.

Thought I’d try outlining this one – not my favourite thing to do. It’s okay but it doesn’t make me feel excited or happy. Just confirms that more colour and minimal line is a more natural way for me.

Warm up sketch – 15 minutes.

I’m time poor and tired today after a sick night for our youngest, so my warm up today is just a quick and loose under-painting (with colour palette – you lucky devils).
