Fabric owl

June 8, 2012

Been lacking inspiration for the last week or so, long public holiday, lousy weather, all encourage non creativity, so to fill the yawning gap I decide to revisit a former theme, not entirely mined out, and managed to pull together an image I felt OK with. Got it accepted today, appearing early next week in my istock portfolio..



Last of the owls!

Think I’m running out of owl steam but have managed to squeeze a couple of final files out of the process.

Time to move on to subjects new!

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.
