More inks

Really liked how this one turned out. There's more focus on line work and the range of mark making and shapes that can be used in an image instead of just tonal modeling.

Ink spots and advice

Interpretation is a wonderful tool, and its use should be planned for in every picture. Too many images are blunt in their meaning and their approach to a topic. Without subtlety, mystery or gaps set in the image, whether it be visually or conceptually, you might up with a picture that doesn't engage the mind.

What we have here could be an angry little boy running and yelling. Or a kid with a radioactive head. I will leave it up to the viewer to decide.

Waiting for beach weather

After coming away inspired by Matt Huynh's lovely ink works at the Papermill I did a few tests and spot illustrations. This is one of them, and after being caught in yesterday's downpour (which included heavy fat tropical rain mixed with little evil bits of hail) I decided to add a bit of colour and hopeful wishing. Fingers crossed for sunny weather.
