Catching up on the projects I missed because I was ill. I think I have most things under control now but I'm still running around a bit! Finished this editorial with gouache. Also bought a snazzy new sketch book and MORE gouache today. I really wanted to buy cyan, but 14ml was £8.

It's my sister's birthday on the 13th so I brushed up on my type skills in her card. Partially because I can never write anything meaningful, and the card was super cute from Paperchase so it deserved it.

This is one of my character designs that I realise I have never uploaded. Shame, because it's one of my favourites. I get really engrossed with Shaun Tan's work, and I love that he is a successful illustrator that just uses simple, accessible drawing methods. Well, one things I've always loved is observational drawing and realism. So, I made this whale helicopter. Rather large pencil drawing on A3.

A better picture of myself flying around my kitchen (still taken with my phone while I have no memory card for my camera). I love the legs. All of my characters for the Social Gathering piece are all individual, so I can re-arrange them if I don't like where it's going on judgment day.
