You’ll have to forgive my absence as of late as I’ve been very busy. Part of that busy was due to the fact I’ve been working on a couple of books that got launched yesterday!
On the left: The Journal of Infinite Possibility! The greatest book for inspiration and to get over that writer’s/Artist block you’ve been suffering! With all sorts of exercises and the likes to get those brains going. I did the cover as well as a dozen or more illustrations for it.
On the right is a book that is very special to myself as it’s my own adult colouring book! Full of all the creepy, boarderline disturbing images I love to draw it’s got something to creep out everyone. It has all 12 Zodiac as well as elemental based images.
Both of these fabulous books can be ordered from Clan Destine Press:
HorrorScope will have a reprint so if you’re happy to wait it’ll be coming out on thicker paper very soon!
Are we not a mere sum of our parts?
What lies within you? Does your appearance represent who you are inside or is it a mere visage for others? Not all of who I am is visible but then I am a very nervous, private person and much like all of us I like my privacy.
If you could look into your own soul and see your true self, what would it look like? A crying child? A screaming maniac? A person sitting calmly within a field of beautiful flowers?
Mine is a child sitting in a field of flowers, it’s sunny and warm, the birds are singing and it’s so very peaceful, a creek trickles along nearby, cool and refreshing in juxtaposition to the warm, blazing sun.
I’m not gone yet, been very busy working though, not much time for fun. I’ll be able to post it all soon so just be paitent a little longer!
A mutated moth with a skull here for you.
Collusion is a cool word, synonymous with Symbiotic, another personal favourite word of mine. Do you guys have a favourite word? What’s it mean? Do you use it whenever you can or save it for special occasions to show off a bit? 🙂
Is it a really really large bee, or a teeny tiny snake? Who knows….
Queen bee inked with my new pens. Absolutely loving them and love getting ink all over my hands too, just so much fun to be had. Let me know what you think of this!
Ink practise again. Both the lioness and my moth were taking very heavily from an artist I admire very much; Caitlin Hackett. So neither I claim as my own for this purpose but imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, right? Right??
Anyway still trying to figure the pen/nib thing out and how not to accidentally make really really thick lines when I want thinner but I’ll keep at it and figure it out 🙂
Ignore the horrid line work, this was mostly a colour practice that went south rapidly when my cat jumped on me and then walked all over the ink…. Lucky I’m wearing black pants 😀
New picture coming soon. I wanted to show off part of it now because I’m trying a new inking technique, one I’ve never used before, and I may botch it completely! So if that happens I’ll upload it anyway but don’t be surprised if it looks wonky 🙂
For some reason I’m really loving the Pisces fish from my zodiacs, it’s fun to make them curl and swirl around one another, the pair work well and everything flows nicely 🙂 this was a Valentine’s Day picture I never got out in time as I finished it just earlier today -_-‘
Very very late…. Yeah it’s hard to stay on top of public holidays and celebrations when you work most of them. Better late then never?
