ikenaga yasunari (inspiration)


These are by the talented Ikenaga Yasunari (click). I really like these as I've always loved traditional Japanese art, Hokusai and all that. These paintings use the same old techniques as some of that type of art, it's called Nihonga. And the subjects of these images are so beautiful!

dissolve me

Just messing around with my new fancy water soluble colouring pencils here, they're pretty great. I like the effect they give a lot, and the fact that you can mix and match with pencil lines and a watercolour effect. I also like that this is a bit messy, but I know I could get a lot better too. Need more practice!

get off of my cloud (inspiration)

All of these lovely paintings are by Aya Takano, go and take a look! I really really like them, a lot of them are really big canvases which is not what I expected when I saw them. Most of them are sci-fi inspired, and they're quite sexy too, lots of naked people. Really nice colours here as well, mmm.

Here are some drawings I've been working on lately, having a lot of fun drawing people's tattoos. Some of them are made up, and others the models have in real life. I'm thinking of drawing at least three more like this so I'll have a series, all in different colours.

the official sting in the tale brochure

It has finally happened! Here we have the official 2012 Sting in the Tale festival of stories brochure that I have been doing all the illustrations for over the past few months. I wasn't the one who added the colour, but I think it's turned out alright! There will be an actual printed copy of this too which I am excited about receiving.

If this festival is something you are interested about attending you can visit this site for more information.

mina milk (inspiration)

I know I've posted about the illustrator Mina Milk (see the drawing above) before but I had to do it again because her stuff is so great. Go have a looky, click the name for her website or her blog (in Russian) is here. What a babe.
