I’ve been itching to play with ink pens again and #Inktober has offered me the perfect excuse! This global illustration challenge invites illustrators and doodlers to set themselves the task of creating a new ink illustration every day throughout October.
The annual #TwitterArtExhibit invites artists from across the world to donate an original, hand made, postcard sized piece of artwork, to raise funds for a pre elected charity, which this year benefits Foster Pride’s “Handmade” Program.
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.
Doodle For Good is a funky coloring book for older kids and adults, featuring a collection of 24 line drawings by artists from across the globe, including one of my robot creatures! I’m real pleased to be a part of this project and feature alongside a whole load of talented artists.
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!
I made a new Vinyl and Sharpie piece this weekend, for the Chance of Rain Summer BBQ n Graff Jam at The Ram & Shackle in Manchester.
I’ve been working on a Steampunk inspired, tillable doodle pattern this week. I’ve been meaning to give pattern making a go for a while now and see how my illustrations translate – I thoroughly enjoyed experimenting and putting it together.
A few months ago, I was commissioned to create a series of tiny doodles, to be used as part of the recently launched new-look website for ValueMyStuff.com.
I created a new robot character this weekend while working on some colouring experiments.
I created a new mascot character yesterday for ArtJunky.net – the online magazine I helped set up in November 2012. I love how character illustrations can add a unique edge to a brand, so creating one for Art Junky seemed an obvious choice.
