Tarzan

Tarzan – strong and wary. He is at one with the jungle.

An ink and watercolor piece I did earlier this year as a birthday present for my very dear and very talented artist friend. Find him on instagram – https://www.instagram.com/loopydavestuff/ and shower him with compliments and money

I wanted to capture the feel of old 3 color printed bookcovers using only yellow, green and black to build the image. I completely redrew the line work 4 times before I was happy with it.


Champagne Poster – Happy New Year!

Champagne to celebrate the New Year!

This is the second drinks poster I designed. I plan to make a 3rd to finish off the set.

Happy New Year everyone!

Be good to yourself, be kind to others, make things, share things, be patience.


Belated Christmas Card

A belated Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays! Wishing you all peace and joy for the year ahead!

Continuing with my Art Deco Christmas dress designs, this year is Holly.

“Of all the trees that are in the wood
The holly bears the crown”

Inktober 2017 Week 2

Drawings from Week 2 of #inktober2017. I’m trying not to spend too long on these drawing. Including re-reading the story/summary, research, rough sketch and finished ink I am spending less then 2 hrs on each.

Day 8: The Twelve Dancing Princesses

Day 9: The Frog Prince

Day 10: The Little Mermaid

Day 11: The Emperor’s New Clothes

Day 12: The Princess and the Pea

Day 13: Little Red Riding Hood

Day 14: Thumbelina

I decided to keep going with the PITT pens. Even the smallest one doesn’t have a very fine point so I can’t spend too long adding in tiny details.

 


Inktober 2017 Week 1

#Inktober2017 Week 1

This year I’ve chosen ‘Fairytales’ as my theme. Some I know very well and some I am enjoying learning more about as I do them.

Day 1: Beauty and the Beast

Day 2: Cinderella

Day 3: The Ugly Duckling

Day 4: Rumpelstiltskin

Day 5: The Snow Queen

Day 6: Hansel and Gretel

Day 7: Snow White

For theses drawings I’ve been experimenting with some PITT pens I received as a gift and a cheap Japanese calligraphy brush pen. I have been enjoying the PITT brush pen and the calligraphy brush but I can’t get the fine line quality I want from the felt tips. I’m torn between sticking with them for consistency or going back to by trusty micro pens.


Twisted: A Steampunk Skirmish Game – Counters & Tokens

I am very proud of these counter designs for the Twisted Game, especially the Art Nouveau style elemental tokens and the fire blast! The top down terrain tokens where something completely unlike anything else I have had to illustrate and were a really fun challenge.

A few of the counters are blanks for numbers, character states, etc… to be added once the rules had been finalised. I have seen the final counters printed and die-cut with the completed game and I think they turned out pretty cool.


Absinthe Poster

Six years ago I had an idea to design a drinks poster with a woman dropping into a glass and the splash creating her dress. I developed the idea, inspired by old Moulin Rouge posters, it became an Absinthe poster.

A few months ago I was approached a new hotel in the UK asking if they could used the illustration as feature in their secret Absinthe bar. I loved the idea but the image was not really finished and definitely not able to be printed and framed at a large scale. And they wanted it LARGE.

So this is the entirely new revised Absinthe Poster. Printed nearly 2 meters tall.

I have also started on 2 other vintage drink poster to make up the set. Once they are all finished I will have them available for sale as prints. Just not as large.


Dr Sketchy’s Life Drawing -Vintage Beauties & Yves Klein Tribute

Another magical night with Dr Sketchy’s! Camilla & Michelle were dazzling vintage beauties and than beautiful blue muses. The performance and poses to follow inspired by Yves Klein was something truly special!

It was a really fun experiment with drawing with the blue watercolor pencil and then paint over it with water. I then could draw over the wet paper again to emphasis shadows and lines.

Looking forward to the next wild art party!
