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.
Finished 100 day project
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).
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.
Please refrain from using my artwork. Thank you kindly!
