Finished 100 day project

Gosh, I can’t believe it’s been four months since I last wrote a blog post! Since April, I’ve had a few big design projects, as well as the 100 day challenge. So as you can imagine, I’ve had no free time to show you any of my drawings.

In this post, I want to share with you a snippet of the more popular pieces as well as a couple of my favourites.

Popular and some of my favourite drawings

 

 

Last year I created mainly illustrations to build up my portfolio, whereas this time round, I’ve concentrated on ideas which can be used for patterns.

Because of the length of the challenge, I wanted to stay motivated and try out new techniques, so I wouldn’t loose interest. This year, I used a variety of media i.e. gouache, procreate, collage and baking (cakes and pies inspired by Kim-Joy).

Final illustration

For my final illustration for the 100 day project, I decided to celebrate by demonstrating some of the beautiful creatures on our planet. I liked the idea of having the land and air animals walking around our planet Earth and assembling the sea creatures within the globe. I’ve also used this piece as the home page to my online portfolio. My husband, who is the more technical one in the family, made my illustration into an animation, which turns – how clever is he!!

I just want to finish off by saying that I’ve learned so much about the different creatures I’ve drawn. Each one is unique and I’ve only illustrated a very small percentage. Whether they swim in the ocean, travel on land or even fly in the air, it would be tough to imagine life without animals.

If you’d like to see more of the finished 100 days project drawings, you can see them on instagram, Facebook or twitter.

Please refrain from using my artwork. Thank you kindly!

The 100 day project 2019

Can’t believe how long it’s been since I last wrote a blog post! In my defence, I have been super busy over the past few weeks. Furthermore, I’d like to add that I’ve increased my work load even more, by taking part in the 100 day project 2019. What can I say, I just love to keep busy!

Last year’s 100 day project was about building up my portfolio and I used procreate for the majority of it. I didn’t have much in the way of children’s illustrations, either. However this year, my aim is to experiment with materials and techniques a bit more. So far I’ve been using gouache, watercolour and ink, and I’m having so much fun! Don’t get me wrong, I do love procreate, which I’ve been using here and there, for block shapes and backgrounds.

My chosen theme is ‘All creatures great and small’. This description is a bit long with the hashtag, so I’ve shortened it to ‘100 days of creatures’ #100daysofcreatures.

Drawing for 100 days feels daunting and such a big commitment. If it ever gets too much, I know that I can just stop or spread the 100 days of artwork over a longer period of time. Although once I commit to something, I do tend to make sure that I stick to it!

Here are some drawings of different size creatures I’ve produced so far.
