bike ride

Time for a new project, one I can proudly say I really enjoyed. It was a small departure from my regular style but I had my way with it. I'm happy I got to experiment with the flat-colour fill and no-contour shapes, I always wanted to try that and I have to say it's not as easy as one might think, when you work traditionally that is. It was also a odd yet fun mix of shapes, but I'm really pleased with the result. Hope the owner is too.

school choir program feature

It's Friday so that means it's time for some features. Today is about music, one my old watercolour pieces got featured on a school choir program pamphlet and it came all the way from the US. This is what I love about the internet, you get connected with the entire world. So thanks for finding me! 
Here are a few pages from the program.

This is a more recent portrait, a gift from a friend to a guy who loves winter, snowboarding and his two dogs. I enjoyed playing with all the colours and textures. And even though winter is not my favourite season, it's really fun to illustrate it.

the colourful girl

And finally, the last piece I made during the holiday season, part of the creatures with features project. But meanwhile, I've made many more others, so expect another wave soon.

This is a portrait of a lovely, colourful lady, who likes crafty hand-made accessories and appreciates art. I hope I captured her essence well.

from paris with love

With this portrait, I think I started a new direction for this project, that being including more background to the illustrations. And I think it helps bring out the mood and atmosphere to each portrait. Today's portrait is about a romance that built up in the city of love and I was hoping to capture that.
