Couple of recently done pages in my small sketchbook. On the left trying out some colourful Tombow brush pens and on the right some tool sketches planning for Illustration Friday a couple of weeks ago.

The top image is the scan of the pages and you can see the orange looks a little more red – not sure which colour I like better.

New Artwork: BB-8

BB-8, watercolour, acrylic ink and ink pen on paper

Played around with ink, water spray bottle and a sponge to create various textures in this piece. I wanted the background to contrast the clean and technical look to BB-8.

Link to my sketchbook sketches and planning for this piece.

My submission for this week’s Illustration Friday, Shelter. A sketchy, inky drawing on a Moleskine page.

The base layer on the page is tissue paper that was wrapped around my soap from Lush. The drawing itself is pigment ink pen, watercolour and acrylic ink.

In the Hollow Of Your Hand

Watercolour, acrylic ink and text on paper, 14.6 x 19cm.

This is a little fun piece that was inspired by Amarante’s new single In The Hollow Of Your Hand. I decided to include a couple of lyrics from the song in the artwork.

You can listen to the single here on Soundcloud.
