I am doing a post catch up with my illustrations for the 52 week illustration challenge. I have been consistent in my artwork but no time to blog piece by piece. Here are weeks 26 -30.
- clouds: Following my daughter’s engagement announcement, naturally I had to make this theme a congratulations card. Ah, cloud number 9 – my favourite cloud. Pencil on toned paper.
- snow: (Watercolour) Australia/NZ Christmas card illustration. The Kiwi bird, Koala and Kookaburra.
- feather: A combination contribution to Daily Doodle (Owly) Pencil on toned paper.
- plane: Plane was drawn whilst waiting for my sleeping beauty roomies ay the SCBWI conference to wake. I had started the night before while we were chatting (okay laughing our heads off) I was too pumped to sleep past 5am and besides I couldn’t miss my week’s challenge! Thankfully you can draw in the dark on my new potable Wacom.
- Sydney: While in Sydney last month, I was making a call home when dozens of BIG bats flew overhead. They are so HUGE! Creepy and cute at the same time. Meet Melba, Phantom, Pavlova and Picasso hanging around the Sydney Opera House – naturally. Sketched in my journal and coloured in Photoshop.
The next 2 will be a little surprising. I have begun a new adventure into surface design not realising it would be so exciting!
