Another drawing part of the 52-Week Illustration Challenge This weeks theme was Octopus. So I created a Kraken. Fun on Illustrator CC.
Mr Peacock: Illustration
Another drawing part of the 52-Week Illustration Challenge This weeks theme was colour so I went with the most colourful bird I know the Peacock. Mine is a stylised version of a real peacock & I played with colour by not sticking to a colour palette (that was hard) & mixing colours up which some do not really go together but overall the colours work.
I love to create things & I thought it was high time that I share what else I create. One of the things that I love to create are illustrations.
This is something that I can do easily on my travels to & from work – it is a bit harder to take scissors on a train & start cutting up paper – believe me I have tried & have often finished off cards on the train.
It is much easier to sit with the laptop & draw in illustrator or take out an art journal & draw into that.
For the past 4 nearly five weeks I have been taking part in the 52-Week Illustration Challenge. This challenge is helping me to reconnect with art. Freeing myself to get creative. This last week the challenge was to draw a fish. Below is my attempt.
While the things I do may not seem to go together they do to me. I often draw up a design that I will make into a card or a scrapbook layout. And I have started to scrap some picture of the things that I have drawn.
I have even incorporated some drawing into a hand bound art book. As I done with some life drawings & made it into a flag book.
So hopefully you will let me share with you some of my other illustrations as I create them & allow them to mix & mingle with my handmade cards, scrapbooks & other crafty ideas that I come up with. And hopefully as time permits I can share with you how I mix & mingle the two different areas of craft.
As I continue on with the 52-Week Illustration Challenge – I still have nearly 20 weeks of catch up to do – I will share with you some more of my other creative pursuits.
Now part of this week WordPress Photo Challenge: topic is work of art!
