Sketchbook: silly stuff


More stuff from a small sketchbook. Some of it's from the Natural History Museum, other stuff, like the inky stuff was just doodling for fun creating dragony, zombie-ish, foxy stuff.

Listening to Lykke Li, particularly this song: I follow Rivers. A very haunting song that seems to creep into the folds of my brain, but strangley elating. The video is beautifully simple.

Black Beauty


I did this sample for someone. It's an illustration of the beautiful horse from the above mentioned title and a 10 year old boy character. It was difficult doing the boy, I don't think he looks 10! I'm gonna have to read it properly,  I've sort of just skimmed it. I've heard It was a very insightful piece of work when it was written, and still is very meaningful. The story is written by Anna Sewell.

Animal Studies


Back to sketching animals again, Its been quite hectic so the drawing was quite therapeutic for me. The deer belongs at the Natural History Museum. The fangs make me smile, It's only a small teeny-tiny deer.

I'm currently doing the roughs for Snow White. I'm a little worried because I'm kind of on time...Makes me feel all nervous. Typical me; I get stuff done on time and feel nervous or get stuff done in the nick of time and feel all vomity haha.

Someone from work gave me an art shop voucher for Christmas and I saved it for a rainy day. Felt all warm and fuzzy when I spent it on essential supplies (Thank you Maria!). Bought an A5 sketchbook because I tend to leave huge blank spaces when I'm drawing and its come to good use as I've been doodling. I'll scan them in some time, oh and the Snow White Roughs. I really should be finishing those roughs ach.
