For Now

For now, I am taking a break from the illustration and as my world has spun in the direction of photography, painting and design.
For recent work click the photography and painting links.

I spy

I have been rather unweekly about the weekly contributions of late, I blame moving house twice in four months, and possibly the weather. Tis most uninspiring to do unpaid illustration work when one's life evolves around cardboard boxes. But now, I live beside the seaside...and all is most grand and inspiring.

This weeks topic had me finally putting aquarell to paper , a notion an old friend said to me many years ago....which still gives me a giggle.
Bit of a quick roughy....I was afterall... sipping hazelnut coffee by the the sea at the time...

gravity{plays a bum note}

I have been working on this peice for a couple of weeks, the third in a series of experiments for an ongoing project. While it is not so much a depiction of this weeks topic as such , both this weeks topic , gravity, as well as last weeks , crash, have played quite the parts in its development.....the crash topic gave me the idea of the about to fall flower pots, and gravity gave me the title which I felt added to the notion of the inevitable next sound about to come from this pianoesque operatus. I'm also considering naming the character Gravity.

smitten Unabridged (v 1.0.1)
smit‧ten  /ˈsmɪtn/ Pronunciation Key - Show Spelled Pronunciation[smit-n]
1. struck, as with a hard blow.
2. grievously or disastrously stricken or afflicted.
3. very much in love.
4. a pp. of smite.

My reaction to this weeks topic was a roll of the eyes and a affliction best left to the kind of people that would purchase these ....{and I would suggest if your partner turned up with one of these you should probably suggest that you both start seeing other people}

So,upon flicking through other illustrationfriday submisssions I found the above definition{cut and pasted from cory godbey's blog...afflicted! that I can play with...and so, after veiwing Rozencrantz & Guildenstern Are Dead last week...the line "he's afflicted" has stuck in my head... so here is this mornings quick ink...of the afflicted Hamlet...

It started with an acrylic mono print of the figure{gotta work FAST}...then added cut up peices of previous failed attempts at the figure....lastly adding bits n bots with aquarells & kids crayons
