illustration friday

I meant to do something fancy with her, but ran out of days.

Illustration Friday: VillainBack to the desultory playing card series for this Illustration Friday topic, “Villain”. This is not, incidentally, the original villain of my imaginary deck. One should, however, always be wary when taking directions from strange cats.

It is a tiny little cut-paper piece (although I had fun with the thistles and would like to do a larger version), digitally edited.

I’m quite fond of my hands, and all, but I need to find a camera angle that’s less in love with my knuckles.

This little cut of Red Riding Hood’s old (=connection to topic) grandmother is part of an ongoing project I like to call OH MY GOODNESS MY PHONE DOES TIMELAPSE VIDEO.

Illustration Friday: Tiger

Tyger Tyger, burning bright
In the forests of the night…

-William Blake, “The Tyger”

A little cut-paper piece, made while listening to a Stuff You Missed In History Class episode on Calamity Jane (sometimes what I was listening to associates itself lingeringly with a piece).

RedBubble has recently introduced hardcover journals (lined, blank or grid pages), so I have uploaded this design there: Tyger, Tyger. I’m waiting for my first order to arrive so I can see how they look – very excited.

Illustration Friday: Garden

I’m working on a few cut-paper projects at the moment, so of course instead of cutting out a silhouette of Sputnik I stayed up too late the other night cutting out tiny little dioramas of a meeting in a certain ‘prettyish little wilderness’.

Illustration Friday: Sharp
A process illustration, for this Illustration Friday topic “Sharp”. It was late, I’d spent the afternoon cutting out tiny stars, dragonflies and astronauts, and the obvious response to being asked how I did it was to illustrate the process. (Well, first I answered “tiny little knives”). This is a digitally coloured and textured version of the original cut-paper illustration, which really is very tiny. Sharp - close-upSoundtrack: The Allusionist and CatastropheCast. I’m working my way through the Radiotopia stable of podcasts, and will soon need new recommendations, particularly for anything comparable to Seven Wonders of the Industrial Age or Aircrash Investigations.

Illustration Friday: Airborne


Sneaking in under the radar with a Queen and 7 of Wasps for this week’s Illustration Friday topic. As usual, trialling techniques. These sketches are based on a series of wasp queen drawings I made idly in panels during Continuum 11 (which was great).
