Here’s the result of the second editorial piece I have set myself, this time focusing on the tube strikes that have taken place in London recently.
I approached this one in the same way I did my crowd drawings of the Natural History Museum, and used the two colours from the Underground’s logo. Red and blue also being hot/cold, movement/still, full/empty. Y’know?
I’m setting myself a few editorial projects at the moment, and this is a draft of the first one. It regards the current flooding in Somerset, and how the local people are coping with their towns and villages being submerged. I have a few other versions of this illustration which I might upload at some point soon.
Just some quick tree drawings from my sketchbook.
I co-conducted a workshop at my old school last week. We taught the students about gifs and editing their drawings in Photoshop. One of them made a really cool gif of a psychedelic Elton John by changing the hue levels - so I thought I’d try it with one of my recent drawings. You give some, you take some…
I like how the intermittent change in colours resembles the cracking of thunder. So arty.
I drawing I did of my grandmother, Goggie, over Christmas.
A private commission I have just completed of a house in Berkshire. I was asked to use colour in the drawing, but my ability to use coloured pencils effectively is pretty low - hence the simple varieties of green for the trees and plants around the house. This is the first time I have attempted blurry shapes in colour though, and I’m pretty happy with the result.
I am the proud owner of a shiny new website that I finished putting together yesterday. I’ve spent far too long relying solely on Tumblr to showcase my work, so this is very overdue.
Treat yourself this Friday morning, and go wander around the digital county of my portfolio.
