Week 5: Peacock

This will have to be a quick post as I am currently visiting my boyfriend in Cardiff. I have managed to set some time aside to do an illustration for this week. It’s a bit all over the place and i have not mastered the art of markers yet. If you like what you see leave a like and follow. Enjoy!

52 Week Illustration Challenge

As I may have mentioned before, I am trying to get more into illustration. The problem I’ve been having is getting motivated, (hence why I haven’t posted in a while) and I can never think of anything to draw. I’m new to illustration, I don’t know whether I should study it from scratch, do a Masters in Illustration or work on my skills and be confident that my background in Fine Art will guide me. I have already started some drawings and mixed media studies, which I found very satisfying, but I then I get art block and go days without any inspiration. I work better when there is something pushing me to complete a task. That is why I will be doing the 52 Week Illustration Challenge!

The challenge was founded my Tania McCartney and it is something that a lot of people have gotten into since January (so I’m a little bit behind). I’ll be starting it tomorrow and using Photoshop and traditional art. I will also post my progress weekly!
