Applying for copious amounts of job applications by day, working on projects by night.
Heres a little screenshot of progress thus far from last night.
I’ve got a few paintings on the go and a couple of new ideas for some illustrations so no doubt expect to be bothered by some posts of them
Just working out a book cover illustration of a recent read book. I still feel like theres some areas where it still needs ’ a lil’ something’, but I’ll just see how it looks tomorrow to me.
It’s some good practice with the graphics tablet and also getting used to working with typography digitally. Anywho this is it so far, might be some slight changes later on but we’ll just have to see.
Worked freehand with watercolours then put through the digital sphere.
Hitting the computer hard today, finding it real hard to soften up this typo to go with the rest of the illustration.
But this will remain just a sneak peak/update for the time being until its perfected a bit more.
This is it so far. A few little areas for correction and re arrangement but its getting there slowly enough. For some reason the second shot came out looking quite plastic but, the suns gone away for now, but i’ll be getting some more decent shots of it in due time hopefully !
Some up, close and personal shots of the painting coming along slowly. Taken a slight stump with progressing through this one due to trying to find lost portfolio pieces, other illustrations and just general creative block. So hopefully some Miles accompanied by pizza will smooth out the transitions (Also this stanking cold is never gonna help)
Started work on a new painting piece the other day, more progress shots to come along as it progress’s I suppose but to give you an idea of it, its going to be a bit like the last one in the sense there is some paint involved.
I haven’t posted too many drawings and illustration pieces which is a bit misleading considering the title of this blog, but I’ve just been stretching out the painting muscles and getting lose with it.
I’ve built up a small pile of illustration stuff though to be redefined and released in good time, so expect to see some of that heading your way through the wonders of tumblr.
Not the best of photos but this is just another update.
Recently picked up some spray paint and got creative on an old busted up canvas that was left slumped in the corner. This is only the foundation but theres a few areas I’m found of already, and the first photo is the photo of the full canvas and painting thus far, the other 2 or up close shots of the detail and textures of it.
So far its just spray paint, a bucket of old house paint and just scraped and distorted the paint around the canvas. Heading back into an old style that I quite like, expect some progress shots coming up in the next few days or so !
Graphic tablet fun whilst on a tea fuelled frenzy. A bit incomplete but you get the idea so far
So, my brother is swimming for charity tomorrow and it would be amazing to get as much money for his swim as possible, as i say its for charity and its going towards the RNLI, which is a charity service to saving people at sea and on average save 22 lives everyday.
If any of you would want to donate any amount at all that would be amazing. If not no worries but if you do I would be in your humble service for ever.
If you want to donate heres the link (its surprisingly quick to donate), Craig Brelsford.
And if you want to look more into the RNLI you can check the website out Here
Any amount at all would be amazing and if you don’t theres nothing wrong with that I’ll just judge you silently …..
