So, it's been an unforgivably long time since i've posted on here. Since my last post i have started using illustrator and i feel as though it's really helping my work. Here is a christmas card i did today, it's meant to be a pdf but blogspot doesn't like those so here is a lower quality jpeg.
Although i don't have a beard myself, as you can tell i like to draw them. this is a follow on from the previous image, just had a bit more of a play so see what i could do with the colour and the black line drawing, i think the most successful aspect was the typeface i created for this, it took literally 2 minutes to draw and edit in total.. not sure if the colour in the background is too harsh, however i duplicated the foreground and moved it slightly to give a 3d esque feel and i think the colour backs this up well. having said that it could be too distracting and need taming.. any opinions will be greatly appreciated..
What a surprise, bearded men on my blog.. this was a quick line drawing i did when i was bored and i stuck it on photoshop and had a bit of a play with colour. will probably do one final one alongside this.
This is one image from a series of 5 consisting of a lino print, an etching and 3 drawings. it focuses on war through the ages personifying pigeons as the soldiers. the quality looks whack unless you click on it unfortunately.
