A raft of Otters

This is an illustration for a year group art book we are creating, called An Assortment of Illustrators. The art book will be available to buy at the end of year show- and I can't wait to see the finished thing! The theme was collective animal nouns, and I chose 'A raft of Otters' (Although, I was tempted by a mischief of mice and a sleuth of bears). This piece took me a long time to get right, so hoping the final print turns out OK. I spent far too long drawing otter in various poses before starting on the final piece, so perhaps in future I'll only draw whats necessary, rather than having pages and pages of the same character.

It's been a while since I've updated, so I will be posting a fair bit this week...expect children's picture book pages, postcards and FMP work.

Once again another editorial, this time reverting back to my comfort-style of drawing objects using SAI Painter. This piece has been edited following tutor's feedback, as previously the cassette looked too flat. Part of a collection of editorials.

Editorial Friday

After spending the morning in the library looking through different magazines and publications, I came across 'Ecologist Magazine' which uses a fair bit of illustration rather than using stock photos. This is my version for an article 'Don't Go Back To Work' about quitting work and going somewhere new. I decided to try a different style of illustration which was more fitting to the magazine.

I've also decided to make each Friday 'Editorial Friday', so that I get back on track with work.
