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.
