Alongside my floral theme, I’m researching various types of animals to incorporate with the theme, focusing specifically on texture. The Chameleon was drawn as a reflection on obscure wildlife with beautiful skins, colour and textures.
Sorry that I’be been away folks, Christmas time was manic! Making a fresh start on drawings for my latest live project to design a series of scarves for Liberty of London! Cool or what? Anyway, I decided to look at more analytical drawings, with the added touch of my quirky edge to it. This was drawn from an exotic plant I purchased in Ikea, as my theme is obscure florals this plant fit perfectly. Because the flower was made up of so many shades and tones I really wanted to overexaggerate the colour. Hope you like, let me know what you think!
In the Native American themed brief I was asked to create a wallpaper for children by the end of the module, I thought it would be pretty interesting to look at skulls, specifically animal skulls, like that of rams and cows, I thought it tied well with the buffalo idea which is very relevant to the theme. However, I wanted something a bit quirky and different, so I looked at a graphic side to my drawings, drawing in fine liner and pencil. And developing that by filling in some of the areas with pattern. By developing the skulls in this way, its given them a softer edge to them instead of being all horror-like which wouldn’t mesh well with children.
Continuous line drawing of a bird, as part of a filler for my Bloom project. Love drawing in this mode, quick, easy and quirky. Watch this space.
