Created for Illustration Friday weekly illustration brief to create work based on a single word “Smooth”
When thinking of Smooth i thought of Michael Field character in the TV ting Luxury Comedy
I entered some works to tigerprints ‘lovely days’ competition lastnight, it was a bit of a rush job but, like the last post here its more about getting back in to swing of things, kind of like warming up before a run i guess.
Ive really enjoy making the lil square type, as well as making some lil water color squares that i was going to use as the base for design cards but dint really give it enough time, they where pleasant to make to so id thought id share.
i really enjoyed David Petersen’s Blog post about ‘Drawing like yourself’.
Ive spent time thinking ‘im not as good as artist x’ and not appreciating my own work, so its nice to read about some else experience of this…
home if you don’t know who David Petersen is look up the mouse guard at http://www.mouseguard.net/ and enjoy it
