Elemental

Having a bit of a love fest with the symmetry of the last couple of assignments with Skillshare. Pattern and colour combined with balance is very soothing.
This was inspired from a Brooke Taylor song I have been listening to lately "Thunder". A line in the song goes "We speak storms, we're all electric...thunder thunder...first the light, then the sound..." 

I have entitled this "Elemental"



New Skills with Skillshare - One Red Fox

Sometimes you just need to break out and try some new stuff. To that end I have joined Skillshare
The first assignment I joined up for was with the cool guys from DKNG Studios, create a geometric animal. Of course it had to be a fox!
So here it is, showing the initial sketch and finished illustration.

Illustration Friday - Bee Strong!


This is a little character that's been around my drawing board for a while now, BeBe! Thought he went well with the prompt for Illustration Friday this week. I haven't participated for a little while...actually it's been a loooong time so nice to be doing something here again.

Hunny Bunny

Hey there Hunny Bunny! This little guy looks a little bit cheeky don't you think? I wonder who he is ogling...I think a matching girl bunny needs to be made!

Artist Self Doubt


I don't know if it's just me, but as an artist, when I can't create the feeling that it's never going to happen ever again grips me and the idea that I was just a big fraud all along dogs my thoughts.

So I 'throw' (figuratively) my pencils across the room, flump on the couch and sulk (not so figuratively), threaten to run away and never come back, then go and dance to some cool latin grooves at the local farmers market, hang out with friends and my awesome kidlets, drink coffee till I'm sick, have a good nights sleep and then thank God when I wake up at stupid o'clock with inspiration and my hand and heart are talking again and out it comes....the life of an artist...wild ride I tell you!

So initial sketch for, hopefully, final finished portfolio piece. Time to try and get myself an agent...crossing fingers and toes!
