The next piece done for my ongoing Gotye project.

With this piece I wanted to capture the overall feeling of the song- joyful and uplifting. I decided to put the complete lyrics of the song (repeated) in a heart as the central focus of the piece. The different silhouettes are bringing everything together within the piece itself.

I created the rainbow ink background to again reinforce the overall joyous and ‘colourful’ nature of the song. I also took inspiration for the official animated video of the song created by Shannon Cross-which can be watched here on Youtube.

Again I used SenshiStock (DA | Tumblr) stock images and poses as references for drawing the silhouettes.

Coming Back, ink, acrylic paint, dry pastel on paper, 15 x 18cm

This is the next artwork in my Gotye Project.


In this piece I wanted to represent two figures- one lonely and missing the other, filled with thoughts about what they are doing, where they are and the uncertainty that goes along with it. The other falling through these thoughts and fading to a vague recollection.

The grey, blue and black hues symbolise these feelings- the colours are darker further away from the figure representing darker thoughts looming. The figure is also slowly being consumed by darker thoughts of the self at the same time.

The other figure exists within the thoughts but is white, vague and also fading into the surrounding thoughts.

You’ve been gone so long you’re fading
And it takes all the time I
can find just retaining
Thoughts of things we did
while you were here
But I know you will return my dear

Main figure reference is from the amazing SenshiStock

(I did upload this a few minutes ago but saw something on the piece that needed changing so I altered it slightly and re-scanned it)

Actually managed to upload my entry for BlackBerry and Neil Gaiman’s Calendar of Talesmainly because I had it in my head that the submission date was 15th May for some reason.

So I wanted to make something simple that I could create, scan and submit in the same day. I chose the  December Tale to illustrate and I actually had the idea in my head for about a couple of months but never found the time to plan it out and do some test images like i would usually. I am glad that I found this stock from SenshiStock as reference, (I have a feeling that I will be using a lot of their stock as reference for the odd occasion I use figures in my work.)

I’m glad I managed to keep my usual inky aesthetic, only this time I had apply some heat to dry the ink between layers rather than having the time to wait for it to dry on its own.
