Submission for Rojo and Baxter’s sea themed zine I finished last night. Absolutely surprised myself with the quality of this outcome, I would credit this to be the first illustration where I have been truly satisfied with both the composition and colour choices I made, and it was one of the most enjoyable pieces I have worked on in a long time.

7 hours. Cut collaged card and paper, acrylic paint, watercolour paper, art pens, pencil crayon on white card and Photoshop.

First draft of an illustration idea for a submission to Rojo & Baxter’s sea themed zine.

Watercolour and pencil crayon in sketchbook, edited in Photoshop.

The final illustration will be A4, with a larger weight of space at the bottom of the composition, and all text will be hand rendered. The background will be darker and each component will be separately layered into the composition using Photoshop.

Hopefully this will bring about something quite exciting to look at.

Pencil drawings for Dove Project, animation Scene 6 - production stages.
White pencil crayon on black mount board, and Photoshop.
These illustrations will form the stages of making an origami dove within the animation. Each stage will include moving and written instructions overlaid in AfterEffects and will give the illusion of being 3 Dimensional, with the white contrasting against a darker, but textured background.These stages may also become a short printed instruction zine to be printed and sold in Natalie’s shop.Follow Natalie Robinson on Facebook here.

Life drawing from last Wednesday’s “Drawing Lab” at BIAD.

Coloured pencil crayons on cartridge paper.

Rendered by using the lightest pencil colour first, mapping contours and “edges” of shadows - the value between the lightest and darkest parts of the figure, using medium pencil colours to block in areas of shading and to correct badly rendered areas a shapes, and the darkest pencil colour to shade in the darkest level of contrast in the image.

Personal work - "Stay For Tea" - for my best friend and the one I love.

If you do not think that creative studies and drawing are important, then I feel that you must live a very boring existence. For me, drawing is a form of communication, a language that I have taught myself, with a meaning I can construe to many people or just a singular audience to varying degrees, and I personally couldn’t live without it!

This is a purely personal piece, it serves no purpose other than to communicate my feelings. After working on a variety of briefs for clients and university, I have realised the importance of drawing for drawing’s sake; without any particular agenda but my own. It is the most unpolluted version of illustration; it is far easier to communicate your own message than to communicate the message of another individual.

Sometime’s it’s necessary to be self indulgent, to remind ourselves of the real reasons why we love what we do.
