IW: Wack! List 2

I did some more that I wanted to show you, continuing to experiment with this simplistic and self-expressive style.

It’s self-expressive because it carries on with my impulse to record feelings and moments that I want to capture and the lining colour, as well as the extra details, is a reflection of that feeling. The muscle-man tells that muscles don’t compare to real, practical muscle and it’s comical of the typical “meathead” as they’re called around here. Another one to mention is the sleeping fella, whom resembles me and my consistent bouts of fatigue when I get up in the morning.

Like I said, it’s simplistic and self-expressive so although it’s cartoony and most often comical, it’s also personal :).

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.
