Hello world! Lots of things have been happening and I am working busy as a bee and loving it. Sadly my trusty Mac has died on me and is in repairs which leaves me with getting back to traditional work for now. This latest creation speaks for itself... its a pigeon! Had a fun time experimenting with collage trying to get the right colours. My studio currently looks like a cyclone hit it. paper everywhere! Anyway hope you like it. Looking into selling some works and I think this little guy would look nice in a white frame. It will look even better with a little red sold dot next to it also (wink wink).

Happy New Years!

Nothing beats a stormy afternoon sketching and listening to music. Happy new year everyone! I have finished my course and now that all of the end of year festivities are over I am buckling down and working hard to a) find new part time employment and b) get myself out there in the illustration industry. Since the exhibition i have received a lot of good feedback from both teachers and those in industry which has been really great to hear. Now i have to be my own teacher and make sure i keep producing work everyday. This little sketch above is based on my childhood memories spent with my imaginary best friend Sally and is the first sketch for 2011. I think it will develop a lot more over time and be built up to colour. Hopefully i will work it into a series. Anyway back to the drawing board. Thanks to all of you out there for following me through my student years on this blog :)
