Human DOING.

Posted on Updated on

This quarantine time has made me see I am way better at being a human DOING, rather than a human BEING. I like to be busy. I don’t like to be still and feel hard things. It’s ugh, and uncomfortable. But this time is teaching me that’s exactly what I need to do.

Slow down.

Breathe.

Feel it. Stay with it. See what it can teach you.

This illustration came to me when I jogged passed one of my fav trees this week. Man, it felt good to dig out my pencils & ink pens and lose myself on paper. (Drawing on toothy watercolour paper is also really satisfying. My Moleskine sketchbook was full so I had to – happy accident.)

Hope everyone remembers to slow down! Love to you all.

Illustration commission for wedding gift

Posted on Updated on

I was asked to do a commission of a couple for someone to give to them as a wedding gift. After seeing a few photos of the couple together, I did some roughs. Below is the rough that worked best, and the final colour is at the bottom. Rough is in Colerase blue pencil; colour is digital [Photoshop].
