I feel like I’ve been all over the place with my illustration recently, I’m exploring all different styles and experimenting more than ever with colour. By day I spend 90% of my time using 3D software and working with sculpture do when I come home I really feel like I want to let go and explore. This is another example of my head spinning off in to different directions, no rhyme or reason just the first thing that came out of my pencil. Old wormy head…. enjoy!
Life got busy again recently but I found some time to draw this guy and have a play with some different colour combinations. I’ve named it “humility” because of everything going on with mars and the idea of a one way ticket some day to potentially populate and sacrifice a normal life here on earth. I drew the cross upside down by mistake and decided to research what that actually means and loved that has routes in humility and self sacrifice.
My most recent doodles, really enjoying dropping my initial line work into the background… drawing me closer and closer to wanting to experiment with screen printing again!
I feel like I finally pushed outside my comfort zone with this illustration, it was totally off the cuff. As the doodle developed I was thinking Big Bang theory or any member of Weezer during the early 2000’s, and then I wimped out a bit when I got to he jumped. I was very conscious of trying a new colour scheme which I’m really happy with, I think I have a long way to go with my painting technique but I’m never going to get there if I don’t paint!
