Medusa

These are all seperate illustrations that I photographed together. I was inspired by abigail who commented on my Sunday post where I featured the first page of my sketchbook project. She mentioned about doing it as a giveaway, obv I wouldn't be able to though as it's for the project but it did get me thinking, so I thought I would do a series of the same style of drawing just in different colours, patterns, themes etc. I'm not doing them as a give away but who knows I may do one for the winner of my giveaway that I am holding at the moment, as one of the gifts are a drawing done by me. These are the three I managed to do today and they took quite a considerable amount of time! The first illustration I wanted to convey a toned down psychedelic 70s vibe. When I first painted the background for the second one I was going for an autumnal appearance but I find it reminds me of an Egyptian pharaoh so I'm going to pretend that infact that was what I was going for aha, the 3rd I saw the advert for Clash Of The Titans dvd on amazon and when I saw that in cinema one night when we all couldn't decide what to go and see I actually really enjoyed it which I didn't expect to but anyways I took the inspiration from the Medusa head, and the rather hot Sam Worthington holding it on the cover well what can I say it just sparked my imagination!
I think that maybe they would look quite interesting as postcards or something? I love drawing them though, anything involving watercolour, ohp paper and marker pens oh and a sprinkling of glitter i'm pretty much a fan of.




I have added another little something to my giveaway This LOVE necklace! This was made by the jewelry students at my university. I found it in my memory box earlier, I've never worn it I literaly must have put it in there and forgotten about it. I saw it and thought of my readers, because I don't really wear all that many necklaces any more I just stick to the same one or two, yet I still have so many!

I really need to get some work typed up tonight and I have some other contributions for blogs and zines coming up to so that's all pretty exciting, so plenty more illustrations and writting to come!
