Illustration Friday: Imagination

Illustration Friday: Imagination

A head full of wolves for this week’s Illustration Friday. Pen and ink with digital colour (the texture is that of the paper I drew on).

Naturally, I tried out a full Little Red Riding Hood repeating pattern for the background. I’m not unhappy with it – I’ve gone so far as ordering some of it as a Spoonflower swatch, so I will report back on that adventure. In the meantime, here is a section of it without reader:

Wolf pattern

And this is what the two blocks of drawing look like (because I was determined to work from first principles and not move bits around once they were drawn):

It is entirely possible I was avoiding thinking about recent developments in Queensland politics. Everyone copes with stress differently.

In other news: You can win a Dalek drawing of your very own by answering the question at the bottom of this interview: Rowena Cory Daniells: Meet Kathleen Jennings.

Oh, and the September blog header is from the pattern, too:

  1. I hadn’t heard of Spoonflower but I look forward to hearing about how it turns out. This would make a really cool pillow. Also the background image would make for some great wrapping paper and I’m wishing very much that I had some of that right now! As autumn rolls around and my mood for more creepy tales increases I can see my imagination being filled with wolves, among other things.

    Great color choices, too!

  2. Thrilled to have happened upon your blog via Illustration Friday…your work is lovely! Your interest in Daleks intrigues me. I didn’t know what they were until an English friend of mine (I live in California) told me a wonderful story: When she lived in London, her retired father did odd jobs at the BBC.One day he saw an old Dalek prop (full-sized) sitting out with the trash. He asked if he could have it, and he brought it home to my friend’s children. They were the talk of the town for having their very own Dalek!
