New things – coming soon!

Its been ages, because kids, houses, work.

I’ve got some new projects I’m really excited about! …they are not strictly art based, but that’s not what is floating my boat at the moment.

Life is too short to mess around wondering ‘what if?’ – so embracing the project management motto: “JFDI”, I’m going to just fecking do it :D

Finished mocking up what its pretty much going to look like.

I’m going to make a full-on technical line drawing in illustrator next. Then colour it flat colours with maybe a couple of gradients. Maybe I’ll do it CMYK. Part of an evolving master plan. Eventually I’ll get to the point where I can transfer the lot to an A1 canvas and start actually painting. Some time.

Life Drawing 22nd Jan 2015

Here’s the pics from tonights session. Last year was the year of painting, this year is the year of plaything. I’m going to try loads of different stuff and see where it takes me.

Really enjoyed the Sumi-e ink and calligraphy brush stuff tonight. Its the first time I’ve tried using this technique. I don’t really know what I’m doing, but that’s kind of the point – its all good fun. Shame the photos don’t show how deep the blacks are due to the flash reflecting. I will do photos better at some point but its always so damn late when I get back on these long thursdays that I just need to get this stuff posted and done.
