This week I’ve been working on a commissioned illustrated map for the inside cover of a children’s book with a Halloween theme. The front cover is nearly finished now, just needs the finishing touches adding digitally.
I was going to start painting the map this weekend, but we are staying with Sam’s mum and I brought everything with me except my watercolours! I was so annoyed as it’s the perfect time to crack on with it.
Anyway, here are a few photos of what it looks like so far.
I really can’t wait to paint it!
This is the whole piece. It’s one third bigger than it will be in the book to allow me to include lots of detail.
I have to admit that I haven’t had time to work on my colouring book while this commission has been on the drawing board. I also have to apologise to those who’ve signed up for my newsletter as I haven’t got around to sending one yet! Hopefully after this commission I’ll be able to crack on with some more pages.
I doodled this little thing too, inspired by an amazing artist I’ve just discovered on instagram, frameboutique. She’s shared several of her inky doodle spreads and I think they’re beautiful!
This week I decided to draw the beautiful Taylor Swift. She was very easy to draw – her full lips, dark make up and contoured eyebrows making her very identifiable!
