Live your dream

So I finally picked up the paints and paintbrushes after a hectic week of having moved back to Norway and starting my summer job! Even though it's only been a couple of weeks, there was an immense feeling of homecoming, possibly because it's the first time I've properly sat down to paint since becoming a graduate.

I want to develop my typography, so did this. After thinking a while about things to write, this little cliche appeared on the paper.

Suitable at the moment, though, as I am tentatively moving step by step into the world of becoming a freelance illustrator.

This is mainly a lengthy doodle, hence the slight roughness!

ahhh yes. Bit of pink mushy doodling. mainly to try and not use blue with brown:P
I do like this little design, bit unsure about the colours though, might redo at some point. But not blue! haha:P
Will probably end up as a bit more recent self promotion on my board for the New Designers show in London! :)

In other news, my end of degree show is up! It feels very bizarre, but good. It feels like me being an illustrator is more "official" now, hah.
Ohhh I want the future.
Looks like I need to order more business cards, too. Blimey.

Young pandaboy

Explorers (or explorer wannabes) seem to be a theme I can't really get rid of when drawing characters....they're just so fun! Here's a little guy done for my coursemates' excellent initiative of a character animation thingie at the New Designers show:) He loves red pandas. He wants to be a red panda.
(I just want a red panda)

he is holding the sun? Why? I have no idea. Maybe to bring some more sunlight into his life. I definately want that, considering the Falmouth weather at the moment is far from what it should be in near June. hopefully that will change when I have a few weeks off come Wednesday!
Included the original sketch, as I actually like that better...

Some older stuff!

As this page is currently acting as my online portfolio, whilst my website is being redone, I decided to put some older work on it:)

There is More!

The title is an in-joke. A Brittany joke, if you will. Ahhhhhh Brittany.

Anyway, there IS more, of the work variety.

This is an artwork I just finished as well, one of (hopefully) 3 (I've almost finished no.2) I'm doing for my own speculative kiddie book "The environmental Alphabet". It has many polar bears. Bicycles are somewhat boring to draw. yusss.

Aaaaaand this is a doodle I did for funsies, that might end up in my portfolio on a collaged page of doodles (easy way of showing things I can do, I reckon)

So, here's an actual art blog for me too!
Have some work:

This is my artwork for UCF's "Illustrated quotes and sayings" number 6! Making me a part of something that's turning into a sort of proper tradition, hurrah!

I had very much fun with this, and managed to not be stressed as painted it all before the easter break, and with the amount I got done over the actual break, a very good idea.
The quote is from Terry Pratchett's wonderful book "Small Gods", I found it whilst looking at many other quotes from him, and it just stuck. Turns out, my work is based on humour, flat colours and a young audience. Not what I thought it would be 3 years ago:P

Here is a closeup of the text:
(which I really enjoyed painting!)
