One of the goals I set myself this year was to keep pushing the bounds of my creativity and skills. To help this along, I decided to continue with the 'daily photo' (which I've been doing for 15 months now!), and to begin doing a 'fortnightly sketch/illustration' and a 'monthly painting' throughout 2008.
While slightly behind schedule, these are the first 5 sketches/illustrations for the year:
Most of these are the beginnings/parts of projects I'm currently working on, and some are the "practice" illustrations for the book alteration project I'm involved in (more about this in a future post!). As I complete each one I blu-tac it up on my studio wall, so I'm hoping that by the end of the year I'm going to have a wall full of drawings and lots of new illustrative techniques!
I have a few half-completed illustrations lying around my studio, and as I complete 5 or so sketches, I'll endeavour to post them up on Shelbyville (it helps me to have a bit of accountability to the general public!)...
Anyway, I must go and pack my bags for our weekend up in Woy Woy - tomorrow morning we're off on a kayaking + camping adventure!! :)
