Just a quick update on a personal project: I finally finished another sketchbook (that I started some time in 2010!).
My husband’s mate Graham is best man at his friend Martin’s wedding. For Martin’s bachelor’s party, Graham wanted to print T-Shirts with a caricature of the groom. He asked me if I know anything about caricature drawing and if I would do it. Spoiler: I know NOTHING about caricatures. It never interested me as an art form. Yet I promised, I’d give it a try anyway.
My better half wanted a C3PO pictogram for error notices on his Destiny Archive project. Why a picto, I am not sure. But the requirement was to have C3PO as svg. That meant, I couldn’t make it the same style as the hero banner Cad Bane, at least not with all this lovely texture detail. So, I tried to combine his picto wish with the textured look from Cad Bane. And keep it all vectors. Jump to see a bigger image. Read more →
I haven’t had a lot of time to work on this further but every once in a while I find a few minutes to make another illustration. Here is a quick preview of some characters for the kids book I am working on. Still raw and plain, texture, positioning and type not added yet. It’s going to be fun once I am ready to get into the details. Read more →
This has nothing to do with my work. The beautiful image on the wall is a print by Erik Marinovich. My husband gifted it to me for mother’s day. Last weekend, we finally came around to hang it up. The message, colours and the kick ass lettering make me so happy! I had to share this. A huge thank you to you, Peter!
