I have further developed my lino print/digital designs by adding context through found imagery and collage. I feel that the mask design works particularly well in adding context to the image and is also successful compositionally, I feel this composition and design needs to be replicated in my other designs. My coins design clearly does not have the same visual impact and I think this needs to be worked on or redesigned; I would also like to create a more dynamic looking set of coins rather than a straight up and down stack as I feel this will give the design more movement and overall make it more visually appealing.

I’ve been doing lots of Halloween illustrations recently, they’re just so fun to draw I can’t help myself and it’s a good excuse to practice my digital skills. I have been experimenting a bit more with texture, light and shadows in my digital drawing to help give some dimension, though I think I am improving I definitely need to continue practicing.
I’ve been doing an awful lot of illustrations for the Halloween season, I just find it such an enjoyable topic to draw. Here’s a fun little witch girl (one of my favourites).
A very quick and cute illustration.
Today I’ve been working on this silly drawing of a lumberjack enjoying a stroll through the woods.
Another illustration based on my trip to the US, this was a gorgeous green house I found on Daufuskie Island.
