So I'm pretty sure I'm the worst ever at keeping to a regular schedule around here. But I try, I really do. Like, I think about how I never update on an almost daily basis. And I want to post more, but for some reason I can just never make it happen. That counts for something, doesn't it? Like an A for effort. Right?
But while I am here I might as well show you a little bit of what I've been up to. I'd love to say I've been lying on the beach and lounging around pools drinking cocktails for the past few weeks but the weather here has been shit, so I've been working. I've got a new series of illustrations going on and here's a peek at the first fully completed piece.
I haven't titled it yet but the collection as a whole is called "At Sea". It's a series of water/beach/under-the-sea sort of images and so far, so good. I'm actually really enjoying using some COLOR! Things were getting a little beige for awhile, and while I do love my neutrals this is a nice little change of pace.
So this piece is a colored pencil drawing on paper adhered to a painted acrylic ground with a few cut paper pieces here and there. It measures about 9 1/4" x 12 1/2" on illustration board. The plan is to have prints of this, and at least 3 of the other new illustrations by the end of next week. There, I said it out loud so now it has to happen. Fingers crossed.
And in other news, our TV kicked it a couple months back and we finally got a new one! Isn't it amazing?!
Unfortunately it's not HD, but we're making the best of it.
