Mr Frog is celebrating New Year! Bubbly all round!
I've rather fallen in love with this little character...
This time around, I created the line work traditionally with an Ink brush I recently treated myself too. I also tried a new technique to put together the illustration by using my lightbox I got for Christmas. I don't know how I got round without one before!
I've neglected my blog for a long time, and its down to having frequent internet hiatuses and having lots of work to get on with. However, I am going back to uni in a few weeks and should start on a more regular routine that I can fit blogging into...
I'd love to start doing Illustration Friday again so hopefully that can fit in.
As for now, here's what I have been up to over the past few weeks/months:
Bluebeard sketches based on the fantastic fairytale-
Jason and the Argonauts (Futuristic) concept sketches-
I've been busy with little things that I haven't updated my blog in a while, so I thought I would!
I finished my daily draw challenge this Wednesday which was taking up most of my time and I think I will definitely have to do this again. I learnt a great deal about my practice whilst doing the 30 days, especially learning that If i put my mind to it I can create good work in a short period of time.
Here is the combintation of all my efforts over those 30 days in one picture!
I'd also like to share a few of my personal favourites-
Ive also had a few little commissions going on in between and offers to do lots of other exciting projects. Things are moving along nicely in Zesty-land, and I hope many more opportunities will arise when I go back to university after the summer.
I need to get back into Illustration Friday too...
My latest uni project has consumed my life for the past month or so.. if not more.
Its been fun but Ill be glad when its all handed in on Monday 28th! (which is also my 21st birthday!)
Its a handmade concertina book, made to sell at the summer show at Plymouth College of Art. Their is a standard version (with the envelope) and a special edition that comes with a box and 2 badges, as well as being hard-bound!
There is also a bonus mini book called 'En Gateau!'
(A business card is also thrown in, that's the 4 paneled thing)
