Collab Nation: Experiment 5, Stage 1

One of my favourite collaborative art projects, Collab Nation, is back for Experiment 5!

This huge international drawing project has each participating artist starting a drawing on A3 paper, then sending it on to the next artist for them to add to the piece. This continues until 4 artists have added their mark to the drawing. The process produces awesome and brilliantly unpredictable results!

Sketchbook Stuff vol 3

I’ve been doing some more experimenting with textured grayscale fills lately – playing with pencils, markers, and a combination of both. It’s taken a few attempts to get the results as I’d like, but I’m finding a flow that I’m happy with now. Here area few favourites.

Sketchbook Stuff vol 2

Those of you who follow me on Instagram will know that I’ve been getting back into Sketchbooking this year. I’ve never been big on keeping a sketchbook so I’ve had to make a conscious effort to do so in order to get into the habit.

I still feel more comfortable brainstorming concept ideas on big sheets of loose paper, particularly when it comes to graphic design stuff and client work. However, I’ve been making more of an effort to fill my sketchbook with studies and test pieces for my own personal projects. I’m starting to appreciate the advantages of both making the time to do so and having it to hand to catch ideas whenever they pop into my head.

Here are a few of my favourite pages since my last post back in February.

Sketchbook

Sketchbook Stuff

I’m terrible at keeping sketchbooks – I don’t see them as much more than pads of paper so I’m forever cutting pages out to use for other things, or filling them with to-do lists and meeting notes instead of drawings, or just generally defeating the object of having one!

Oops..!

“Oops..!”
Another Robot Doodle, following on in the series from the Eeek..! and Burp..! characters I created earlier this summer. This one marks the last in the series for a while, although I do enjoy working in this style so will no doubt it up again at some point.

Burp..!

“Burp..!”
I created a new doodle robot this weekend – taken from one of the many messy character sketches that’ve been filling my notebook recently.

Collab Nation Experiment 4

One of my favourite collaborative art projects, Collab Nation, is back for another round with Experiment 4!

The project works like a chain letter for illustrators – each artist adding their mark to a sheet of A3 before posting it onto the next, until 4 or 5 artists have created an awesome arty mash up together. There have been some fantastic collaborations come out of the first 3 Experiments, with a brilliant line up involved in Experiment 4.

I finished up my stage 1 submission earlier today (featured above) which is now ready to post onto the next artist. I’ve been doing so much digital work recently that it’d been a while since I got my pens out for a doodle, so it was nice to do so for a change.

I can’t wait to find out who’s work I’ll be drawing on next and what gets added to my piece. I’ll be sharing the progress over on Facebook and Twitter so add me if you’d like to follow the progress.

In the meantime, here are some of the creations I was lucky enough to be a part of during Experiment 3, back in 2011.

Pekoe vs Stina Jones, Stephen Ball and Sam Ulewicz

Stina Jones vs Tim Ulewicz, Neil Ennui and Jennifer Saul

Abe Honest vs Trickfruit, Stina Jones and Jam Free

Eeek..!

“Eeek..!”

I created a new doodle robot this weekend. Taken from a messy sketch in my notebook and developed in Adobe Illustrator as a colouring style experiment. I’m pleased with how it turned out so will be creating a few more robots in this style over the coming months.
