Happy Birthday Ellen

Happy Birthday Ellen

Posted by + on Oct 22, 2013 in Digital Illustration, Personal Work

Something I created yesterday for my friend Ellen who also does Illustration at NUA for her 21st birthday! Instead of using my graphics tablet for this I drew out the image in pen, scanned in and corrected using illustrator and photoshop, turning the lines into strokes and adding multiple layers etc. Overall I’m happy with […]

Whilst waiting for paint to dry and inspired from the previous posts and recent youtube cat videos I’ve stumbled across, here are a few watercolour and ink cats I created. I thought it might be nice to make a couple more of these to create a set. Very random but I like how they turned […]

Breaking Bad Father’s Day Card

Posted by + on Jun 16, 2013 in Personal Work

  As it was father’s day today and my dad loves Breaking Bad I tried to do a very fast card for him with him alongside the characters! It’s very rough and I’m not used to drawing people or ‘cartoony’ things as mentioned before but he and other people seemed to like it!
