SOI Life Drawing #4

Another day, another SOI life drawing evening.
Sadly the last time I will get to do it... this trip at least. And sadly we were both feeling rather ill so left not long into the night. Great models this time, I really wish we had both been feeling better. And as always, great jazz band. 

Given that I wasn't feeling too well, I still think that I managed to get at least 1 good drawing out of it, which is always nice!

SOI Life Drawing

The previous session's life drawing at the SOI, NYC
going to attend one last time before I'm back to Vermont and then back to the UK! Only 3 weeks left until I leave. Kinda sad.

I accidentally gave this last lady a perpetual cold... oops.

fig final

Juicy Figgies

Because I've wanted to try out doing some food illustration for a long time, I finally took the plunge and painted some juicy figs! 

DROOL... maybe a career in food illustration wouldn't be so good for my ever expanding waistline! :S


Life Drawing at the SOI, NY

These are the life drawings I did this week whilst attending the life drawing at the SOI, NY.
I still haven't uploaded the last session's drawings, but will do soon. 

Quite pleased with a few of them!

I think the live jazz band helps.

New Comic

Its a comic, albeit a very short one.
Inspired by Beginning Middle End books 

which has some great work on it by 3rd year Falmouth illustration students.

So here is my own personal one... better photos to come tomorrow...I was just too excited to wait.

Im pretty pleased for my first attempt at sequential illustration

So, the wonderful stoneleaf teahouse is now displaying some of my tea postcards :)

These will be available soon on etsy, and I will produce some more detailed photographs so that you can actually see what they're of/like. 

For now, here is a quick preview, and a photo of the teahouse

When The Tree Flew... Finished!

I'm feeling in a celebratory mood.
Thats because we just finalised the last painting from 'When The Tree Flew' by Gabrielle Jonas. Keep your eyes peeled, this should be available for ebook readers from Barnes and Noble very soon!

Here is the final painting
(a couple of adjustments from last time)

It feels good to be done. 

Onto some personal projects now, I can't wait!

Turtles, Fish & SOI

Currently experimenting with just drawing some things for myself, things I like! Really enjoying just doing some black and white non observational work! Why haven't I been doing this more? 

I recently went to a life drawing evening at the SOI in NYC, which was amazing, they have a live jazz band playing on a Tuesday night, 2 life drawing models from 6.30-9.30, which is ideal! I'm hoping to go again this coming week, so hopefully I'll put up pictures of the last session before I go ahead and do this session!

So, for your pleasure- some fish and lotus

and a grumpy river turtle
