An illustrated look at my pursuit of illustration...

My 10,000-hour journey of illustration began in photography, pixels were morphed into digital art, expanded via pigments in traditional Arts and Graphic design to build and hone the skills required for my imagery creation and layout design. 

Ink harvest re-hatched


Now that spring has well and truly sprung, I have re-hatched my ink harvest.

My original "Harvest" word-art was done a few years ago when I had just fallen in love with ink. It was rushed for a project and I didn't spend the time on it that I would have liked to.

Lately, I had been feeling like I was at an impasse with drawing, painting and digital, and I realised that I hadn't just played with ink for too long.
Fuelled by the impetuous energy of the spring reboot, I decided to go back to basics with my favourite dip pens and scratch away with some hatching techniques and to revisit this project with a hand a little more ink fluent.

My ink illustrations are still far from where I would like them to be, but just having a play has nourished the love I have for ink and those scratchy pens. There are some pens that just don't work for me on some days, but on another day I can't put them down, I just accept this now and know a bad nib today will amaze me another day, it may be lame but the fun-damentals really do remind you of the fun and why it's your passion.
