Illustrator Journal #16: Just playing around…

I made some small illustrations in a new style I’m trying out, dubbed “Wack!” There will be more to come, for sure, but I want to see what you guys think.

I like the style of bold linework with the glow of colour. It’s, well… Bold! 😀

It shows colour and attitude despite the minimal use of colours themselves and this method of illustration is good (for me) because I can do them quickly and anywhere I like, just need a fineliner and a few pencils.

Illustrator Journal #15: Another Animal Kingdom Update

Just another couple of sketches to add to the collection: The Miner Mole and The Guide Goat. It’s a continuing development of The Animal Kingdom and the current progress is 12 out of 26, so I’m nearly halfway. It’s a long process, but it will reflect upon the time and effort spent to visualise this concept well. It’ll also show a development in my drawing skills since all those months ago that I started this.

Hope you enjoy the drawings and glad to have all you followers bear with me on this “journey” of sorts. See you tomorrow for the Haiku.

Illustrator Journal #12: University Status Update

I received conditional offers from both my #1(Coventry) and #2(Worcester) desired Universities, both for Illustration & Fine Art. After some time spent thinking, I’ve decided to take Coventry’s conditional offer.

P1030101

The facilities are much bigger and the course is definitely more appealing in terms of structure, extra modules and professional creative practice. I also feel that after having a brief tour and conversing with the staff, that Coventry will get me to where I want to go more successfully. However, Worcester is a good place as well and I feel bad for declining an offer.

Soon as the final pieces are sorted out, I can accept the offer and apply for accommodation and all the other extras. With a confirmed place, it’s time to set my sights on completing my current course and meeting the conditions of the offer. This is but one of the first steps I’ve taken on my journey.
