IF: Stay

Howdy,

Day 11 out of 183 days. Yup from July 1 to December 31 of this year is a 183 days...so the goal is to reach 183 posts.  Holy crud...what on earth did I embark on?  Too late now! This is my entry for Illustration Friday, the theme being "stay".  Boy, did I just want to stay in bed today and sleep in the warmth and comfort underneath my doona.  Alas, there is no rest for the busy and I was very busy today.  A meeting in the morning, a house inspection in the afternoon and dinner in the evening and I worked in-between everything too.  I didn't get everything I wanted to get done today though!  It makes me feel all panicky!

This illustration was done with copic pens and a brush pen.  Then brought into photoshop for some textures and touch ups.  This is the first illustration I've used my coloured copics on!

Oh, I forgot to mention I went to Reader's Feast again and bought more books.  I love art books!  I bought a couple of Typography books, a fashion book and a book of textures....which I will be using on my illustrations shortly.  My wallet is hurting though.....but books are a great resource and a great source of inspiration.  I really like the raw illustration style of Kat Macleod that I found in the book "What on earth are you wearing" by Michi girl.  This illustration was slightly inspired by her works but with my own style put into it.
