And so it begins...
Hmm... where to start?
When I think of the illustration work that I truly love, just before I fall asleep at night (I'm not the only one!), it's classic & retro-flavoured work that makes my brain smile - Stephan Britt, Marc Boutavant, Meg Hunt...
So it makes sense that as a starting point and I've made a couple of pieces in the past that hinted at that direction.
I've got a couple of ideas for full blown pieces but at the moment I'm focussing on trying drawing techniques that will convey the 'charm' I want to get into my work.
I spent half hour drawing with an ink pen just for fun - It ran out of ink but I really like the 'dry brush' effect on some of these bits.... hits & misses...gulp.
I think I like the snooty sister :)
