52 Week Illustration Challenge: Week 36

Week 36: Printing

Raining cats and dogs. 

For this week's illustration I wanted to create something that could become elements for a stencil. Later I would like to explore reprinting this design in a variety of colours where the clouds, cats and dogs are in a monotone colour (like this one black on white) on coloured paper OR printed in a variety of colours.

52 Week Illustration Challenge: Week 30

Week 30: Home

Mouse's House underneath the veggie patch. 

This was one of those pictures inspiration just hit me and I drew it in bed before I began my day. It however is unfinished and without colour as I ran out of time to complete the illustration before flying to Melbourne.

52-Week Illustration Challenge: Week 29

Week 29: Swing 
This week I wanted to focus on doing a more 'illustrative' type of picture. The illustration is a girl swinging off a rope into water.

52-Week Illustration Challenge: Week 27


Week 27: Bush Countryside
There were a lot of ideas swirling around in my head for this theme. The distant hills, the mid-ground of farmland with its lone paddock tree and leaning on fences made out of wood from local trees are very strong images for me. We may have farmed sheep but a lone cow seemed right for this illustration.

52-Week Illustration Challenge: Week 26

Week 26: San Francisco

For me San Francisco is the Golden Gate Bridge, cable cars, information technology companies like Cisco and the iconic houses on the tv shows Full House and Charmed.

Harmonious Circles

Today I attended my second Sylvia Marris art class.

We painted circles in harmonious colours using acrylic paper and paints plus I added in some watered down ink. We used stencils, pens with stamps, brushes and q-tips to assist in the design creation.

I loved exploring the different ways that circles can be used.

52-Week Illustration Challenge: Week 25

Week 25: Past
This week I had firm idea that I wanted to paint a pair of dinosaurs and when I sat to sketch the idea was already fully formed in my mind.
