Be brave and be bold

I was having a bad day and decided to create something inspirational to hang on my wall. I picked out those that had given me strength and taught me different things. I chose Emilie Autumn, Amanda Palmer, Frida Kahlo, Dame Darcy and Jonathan Davis, all for different reasons. The overarching reason being that they had helped make me stronger in some way. The hi-res image and a more rambling description can be seen on my dA.   

It was inked with Copic liners and coloured with watercolour. It came out pretty bright and vivid, which I wasn't expecting but it lives up to the title.

Girl Parts characters

I don't think this comic is going to happen for awhile, if at all. Since Leeds I've had bursts of inspiration and motivation but it seems to have faded a little. The story is personal so I think that is what's holding me back. I'm going to focus my energy on Casket Case, a 20 page comic (with the first 6 issue arc planned) instead of the graphic novel this was to be. It may still happen but for now I have some drawings and characters I'm pretty pleased with.

EA Portraits

I've been in a bit of a rut the past few weeks but drawing Emilie has given me a few new ideas about my style. And it was just good to get back to a few portraits.
These were all done using Copic fineliners.

Catch Up : Christmas!

My Christmas creations for markets and (as it ended up) family and neighbours. I made decorations, handmade cards, hand printed wrapping paper, cards and gift tags. And my bookmarks for a nice little stocking filler. Not much sold, even during the 'season of giving' but I did okay. What was left over was given to our neighbours and my extended family :)
