For the penultimate character I’ve drawn Kinsey, who I’ve illustrated before but wanted to explore more. I’m writing a script of Kinsey’s Sword and am beginning to think more about what her character will look like.22_Kinsey

One of the good things about taking the train is getting the chance to doodle away. Here are a few drawings from a recent trip. Mostly I just scribble, but the first group below are some characters from an old story of mine. I’ve been wondering about storyboarding the idea, or developing it further in some way.

A little over a year ago I set myself the challenge of illustrating a short story I’d written. I’ve posted some concepts and development of these illustrations before, but now I’d like to share a few of the finished drawings.

Most of the drawings below are spreads, and are viewed over two pages when printed. Odd blank spaces are normally where there’s some text! I had a few copies printed as presents for family and friends this Christmas. I’d like to illustrate some more stories and perhaps create a collection, or maybe tackle something larger, to be published.

Gouache II

Princess copy Birds copy Cat copy Bird copyI had fun painting with gouache last night! I bought three more tubes of paint as last time I only had yellow, red, and blue. Also I planned ahead a bit more, taking some designs from my sketchbook to paint instead of attempting to make them up on the spot.
