Why why why did I think it would be a good idea to check the Illustration Friday topic last thing on a Thursday night? I wasn’t planning on doing one at all – but then I saw that the topic was Octopus. How could I resist that? I didn’t have much time of course so this is just a quick tentacle study, but it’s something.
For Illustration Friday: Contraption (which actually I’ve illustrated before). But any excuse to draw a lighthouse is fine with me.
A bit of a lazy one for Illustration Friday this week. With only 35 Amur leopards left in the wild, they’re definitely clinging to the edge of survival.
Developed from a few jungly sketches I’ve been doing lately for another project! I’ll put up some sketch pages soon…
Based on the book ‘A Tale For the time Being’ by Ruth Ozeki, which I’ve just finished reading and which has made me want to become a Buddhist nun when I grow up.
In it a Hello Kitty lunchbox washes up on the shore of a Canadian island, where it is found by Ruth, a writer – inside is the journal of a 16 year old Japanese schoolgirl, written a decade earlier. I guess it’s a book about the way the written word transcends time.
Anyway I wanted to draw a picture based on it, so I’ve shoehorned it in to this week’s Illustration Friday topic!
