Life Drawing

March 18, 2011

So this week I changed tactics – working bigger, on brown paper, and putting the tone down with pastels first – the lines came really easily and accurately at the end. I really like this one, it was done in 20 minutes and if I had a bit longer it could look a bit better with some background. Stylistically it reminds me of Audrey Kawasaki, which may not be coincidental because I have been oggling her work all week.

Additional Blog!

March 3, 2011

I’ve begun a separate blog to document and share the artists, images, videos, music and ideas which act as my muse – basically all things beautiful, ephemeral, cerebral, ethereal and vision stirring.  Its at this link : http://illustryous.livejournal.com/

I fancied trying a different website – I found flickr and Tumblr tedious, the layout on live journal is good though but it does have adverts on your page, which basically makes wordpress the ultimate best.

I intend to update it pretty regularly, so watch this space.
