Last week on facebook, one of my artist friends from uni, Niki Ferguson, posted a photo of herself with really colourful hair last week and I felt inspired to do a drawing. After a week of working on a commissioned project, I finally took the time to do this drawing for myself!
Pigma Micron marker 01 maker, promarkers and white gel pen on cartridge paper about 21 x 21 cm.
Niki is currently running a GoFundMe campaign to raise funds so she can go to a big exhibition in London she’s been invited to showcase her artwork at. Have a look at her funding page and feel free to donate if you like her work and want to help
I did these drawings for a couple who recently adopted two little girls and I wanted to congratulate them on the addition to the family. Done on cartridge paper with Micron pens, Promarkers and a little bit of colour pencil.
A fellow artist friend of mine, Freja Friborg, recently had a baby and posted an adorable photo of him on Facebook. I just had to do a drawing. It’s about 30x30cm on cartridge paper with pen and ink, Promarkers, metallic markers and a bit of colour pencil. It’s the first time I’ve had the chance to properly use my Promarkers and I love them!
I’m running out of business cards and wanted something new but not too different from my old design (which incorporated a corner of one of my muse drawings that had a bird sitting on Matt’s glasses), so I did a self portrait of me with a paper crane sitting on my glasses since I now do a lot more papercrafts than I did just a year ago. I used Photoshop’s freeform pentool to draw this which is going on my next batch of business cards.
Earlier in the year I did this set of three drawings as a commission. The first is marker and colour pencil while the other two are colour pencil on paper collages. So much fun getting to do something a bit different than what I’ve been doing recently.
A couple of Christmas presents I did that I can show now it’s after Christmas. Freeform pentool in Photoshop. I got them printed and framed them in small square box frames about 23x23cm.
After my mermaid sketch, my cousin sent me a few more photos of her daughter (she was dressed up as a mermaid, I didn’t just grab the idea out of nothing) so I did this mixed media collage. Digital drawing (printed) with glitter paper, patterned paper, markers, dried leaves, paint, glitter glue and metallic markers on scrapbook paper. It’s about 30x30cm.
A quick sketch of my cousin’s daughter as a mermaid.
