I learnt a lot from the process of producing this years Sketchbook Project work. For those not aware the Brooklyn Art Library in the US runs the project every year. The basic idea is to fill up an empty sketchbook with creative energy. You can see other examples in the digital library.
I’ve put the favourites from my sketchbook on Flickr.
Another Illustration Friday post, it’s quite a good challenge even when I miss the deadline but not this week! ;p
Somehow I started with objects and kiddies with toilet paper playing in a garden but ended with the beastie that is the Zombie Banker, out moaning about his need for, you guessed it, “Pounds, more pounds!!”
I love zombie films and who could resist Zombie bankers. So many of my characters seem to end up in smart suits so it was only logical. This creatures of the undead even has a hanky to remind him of his pre-zombie existence!
Very much enjoying the calligraphy pen, paint brush, water coloured paper and the odd bit of acrylic! The pen makes such great scratchy noises on watercolour paper.
