Sketching

So in between preparations (see previous posts) I am trying to do some more quick drawings. A bit between sketches and illustrations. Just to see if one day I'll manage to loosen up enough to get where I feel I've really progressed towards the goal I set a few years ago. Still nothing happening but I am keeping at it.

Preparations

I'm in the middle of preparing my art show in London. It's starting to feel real as it's in eleven days. These past six months have been interesting, but I've started to loose the thread again. Doing too many things, out of need mostly, need to find a job or more commissions and it feels a bit like have four parallel lives. I wouldn't mind slowing down a bit if I can.

Until then I am on full speed ahead. Took photos of the finished pieces, so I can build a shop on my website later this year.

Steampunk jewellery

I have new flyers. A total revamp of the ones I had previously.  Slowly getting ready for Worldcon which is in a month now!

Coloured

Here you are, all done :) I feel all odd using US formats, I'm so used to the balance of the European formats.

It's up for voting for now

News and such

Been busy and busier times are approaching. Mostly my time is taken by trying to find a job.

I've been practising with posters. When I was much younger I loved to fool about and design my own Fillmore inspired posters. I'll see if I can find some of them, but a lot of my early stuff went to the bin at some point. I've meant to do some new ones for at least a year but never got to it. And now it's a theme at Creative Allies. So it was an incentive to finally start on this idea. The theme is to design a poster to go with the new release of an iconic show:

Outlined and hopefully coloured today (or I won't make the deadline)


I'm not sure what will be in the centre yet so it will have to wait a bit. I know what colour scheme it will be. So stay tuned

And this too

I finished my course in graphic design at the London Art College. These are online courses that give you an overview of a subject, not in depth but it's a good basis. I've added my own to it and learned to use all the basic software that you need for graphic design nowadays.


My next aim would be to develop a project just for practise and also build a proper website in Dreaweaver and all. But for now I must concentrate on finding a job as I never really trusted the idea of being totally freelance. And I want to work on a book idea I've had some month ago. The other projects are all on hold, hopefully they will re surface one day.

Update

Two posts below I was asking for support for a friend, enough people responded for me to send 70$ to my friend Sarah. Many, many thanks on her behalf. http://www.gofundme.com/9eqz98
She's not out of trouble yet of course but anything helps!
