Go ahead and jump

Sometimes you have to stop getting ready, and just get going.

Swim

The IF theme this week is “Swim.”

Hybrid Technica pen, watercolor, and a little colored pencil in a Strathmore art journal with 140lb. watercolor paper; background and cropping courtesy of Photoshop.  For my next project, I’m going to dive into one of my new Stillman & Birn sketchbooks.  I’ve got one each of the Alpha, Beta, Epsilon and Delta series, and am trying to find a Zeta.  The paper seems amazing — I can’t wait to see how it works out.

Looking back

The Illustration Friday theme this week is “yesterday,” so here’s what I was working on yesterday, and then a few days before that.  The house is for a card for a friend who just got married; the fungus (that’s what it is, really) is watercolor and colored pencil, and was done from an enormous specimen at our local Museum of Natural History.
