Holiday Sketches – Focusing on Drawing People

Here are some drawings from my recent travels. I’ve always been shy about drawing people so wanted to practice. I found a wonderful stationary shop in Thailand and topped up on pens. Do find it interesting how much my style changes depending on which thickness and type of pen I use. In fact it changes drastically depending on the medium, so you almost can’t tell it’s the same person behind the creations!

New Paper Cut Artworks. Shaping Reality.

Lately i’ve been inspired to create some new work. These paper cuts are quite abstract, leaving more up to the imagination. They are also a much larger scale than I usually work, around A2 size. I’m enjoying exploring this and seeing where it goes. The plan is to organise an exhibition later this year…exciting!

New artwork

Lately i’ve been doing some new work that is beginning to explore emotions and feelings, something i’ve not done for a long time. It is refreshing to step outside of the greetings cards world for a bit and try something different. Of course I am still doing my greetings cards as I love it and that is my business, but they are not the only thing I do. These illustrations are larger scale pieces. I am going to create a series of them. Please let me know what you think. Thanks for reading.
