In the studio: Drawing, drawing, drawing!

So as the title says, my studio time has been primarily drawing. Lots of fun!

First is the giant colouring page for the launch party (in just over a weeks’ time). I’ve chosen a quote from the book and will be drawing a sort of pirate map around it. This will be for the guests at the launch to collaborate on, and will be printed at A0 size (about 85cm x 120cm), like I did for the New Lynn Christmas Market (see photos).

Second is getting started on the illustrations for my next book. As many of you know, I’ve decided to illustrate this series myself, and have been playing with ideas. I’ll be drawing the illustration with ink pen, and then painting the colour. The idea, for each illustration, to have a focal foreground and a textured background.

All the images below are just trials, but I’m happy with what I’ve got so far 🙂
