It seems like it's been ages since I've played with tangle pattern that just caught my eye. I'm glad Ellish did on this occasion - it's a lot of fun to draw with - very sinuous and pretty, what's not to love?
I'd like to experiment with it more.
And now for something a little different - I thought I'd share a drawing from one of my final Illustration assignments last term - we had to create a steampunk character, so here's my favourite guy, Ollie, steampunk-ed up :) He is done entirely with grey lead pencil.
On the school front I'm currently applying for a short term (3 weeks in September) study exchange to Cedar Rapids, IA & Chicago - which will be very exciting if I'm approved for it. Part of my application is to list some industries or companies that I would like to visit - so, if anyone is familiar with the area and knows of places in either Cedar Rapids or Chicago that would be a benefit for me to visit and relate to my field of study: Graphic Design, please let me know.
In some other fun news, I have begun work on a new e-book. This one will be a little slower going with my school load, but I currently devote Wednesday's and whatever other time I can during the week to it. It's shaping up well and I'm excited. I'll give out more info on it when I've got a bit more under my belt.
Around home the countdown continues for Miss Jersey's new calf and John has finally got the roof on the pig shed (this shed project has been in progress for about 4 years now - it's a huge structure - and has just recently moved forward in leaps and bounds).
Here's a pic of the first lamb for 2016 from a few weeks ago. So sweet.
Have an amazing weekend!
