Finally, another Illustration Friday!
Haha! Got one done. After my previous post I felt bad about missing my usual illustration Friday topics, so I just had to colour in this pic that I had already drawn. I feel it's a shame that I only ever get halfway there, and I never post them!
This week's topic was 'clear.' This picture is a play on the fact that sometimes people in a relationship can be so oblivious to what their partner is really like, when actually it's as plain as day. I guess that's why they say love is blind!
I wonder what this girl ever saw in him!!?
This is a mixed media piece using graph paper, pen, coloured pencil, felt, stitching, and wonderful wonderful magical scotch tape. I have discovered a new love for this stuff tonight. I stuck all over the paper (just to stick the graph paper down at first) and the vibrancy of the coloured pencil when drawn over the top is fab-o! Plus it has a nice feel to draw over it with pencil. Oooohhh, I think I've just discovered a new technique. Don't you just love that?
