Bottles of booze

May 23, 2012

I’ve been going through a rather lean spell, ideas-wise, so when I’m a bit stuck for something to draw to sell as micro-stock I resort to taking photos of everyday objects and drawing simple illustrations of them , often silhouettes, as here, a selection of bottlesĀ  from my extensive alcohol collection, plus glasses to drink it with. Not the most exciting image but that’s not always what selling microstock is abou. Here they are in simple silhouette form…

Once I’ve dawn an image I try and re-use it, so I took the bottles alone and placed them on a page and cut out and recoloured them where they overlapped, and did two versions which will sell together…

I may try and do something similar with the glasses.
