I’ve never known such sadness to sweep not only a nation, but the world. To sweep humanity. A man of honour, patience and determination, last night we said goodbye to an icon. A hero. A colossus. I have never felt so patriotic and connected to every South African in my 24 years of life. In times of sadness people become united. Because regardless of colour, religion or culture, human beings recognize pain and our natural inclination is to console those we relate to. Let us keep his legacy alive!
The word for this week’s Illustration Friday was “tail”. The first thing I thought of was a peacock. Naaah, not really up my alley. And then after a while, I couldn’t get the image of a couple with animal faces out of my head. So this is the product. Because animals fall in love too right? OR at least, I fall in love with them (my cat). Cat lady. Cough.
This week has been ridiculously busy, but I find that no matter how messy my brain gets, I have to take the time to just play a little, to clear up all the fog.
WHAT DOES THE FOX SAY?! RINGNINGNING RING…NING…No? Ok fine, I’ll stop.
About a year ago, I was commissioned to illustrate a series of drawings for a popular fashion magazine here in South Africa. This was one of the first “scamps” or “attempts” I made at trying to capture the spirit of fashion…and a ram. I meant to post it such a long time ago, but here you go. Personally, I love it a lot because it was a style that, at the time, I was just beginning to explore. Plus, mess with her and she’ll ram you. Get it? Because horns and…agh, never mind.
Er, are you supposed to be scary?
This is an illustration I did such a long time ago. One of those forgotten little pieces that I stumbled upon today. And well timed as well, considering Halloween was yesterday.
I really love this kid’s complete and utter lack of conviction of this ghost’s scariness. He needs to step up his game! She is awesome. He needs to work harder. I feel like an unlikely friendship will develop here. Hope everyone had a great Hallow’s Eve!
It’s been a ridiculous amount of time since I last posted. Admittedly I had a bit of “illustrator’s Block” (is that a thing?) Anyway, I think it’s gone now. And this is the result
This is an illustration that I started working on a while back. A character & style that I’d really like to explore some more & develop into an actual story/book. Her name you ask? Mia Kapiya (what? I like rhymes ok). So when this week’s word was lost, I thought she was quite appropriate & finally finished her.
