So I realised I’m naming my art dumps incorrectly, since I drew most of this throughout August. But I’m going to ignore that fact and just carry on. 😐 August was great for drawing! Because I only drew for myself. Lulz. Uh, yeah, I’m working on some stuff for stories I’ve written with DCL buddies and I’m also making some keyring of My [[AlbinoToons]] characters. So here’s some art from all that fun stuff!
Firstly, dragons! I drew my own characters, from the top and then left to right: Arbor, Coral, Xar and Flux. Flux’s face looks so stupid, so I’m not a big fan of that one. But still, yay dragons! I’ve also been working on more Wapuu stickers but they’re not ready to be shown yet. As I said I’m working on keyrings – I’ve got five different designs to finish up but I’m pretty happy with Greg and Lewis from my Instagram comic so far:
I’m still debating ordering them in black and white to match the comic but idk, I think they’ll look better in colour. What else is new? Oh! I’m talking at WPLeeds, potentially Manchester (though I need to chase that up) and then WordCamp Manchester next month. Yeah, so I went from not having the balls to public speak to somehow volunteering to do it three times. Smart move Kay, well done. I’m gonna be talking with Keith at Leeds and WordCamp Manchester so I’m sure we’ll do fine. Yeah. I’m not crapping myself at all.
In other creative news I’ve started making Christmas cards. Apparently it’s been enough years since the last time I did that to forget how stressful it was haha. They’re coming along nicely, but I don’t want to post any designs until later in the year.
I’m booking Las Vegas next month as well! YEAH. Life is sweet.
Oh one final thing I wanted to plug my friend Claire’s new website. Well, it’s new in the sense that I only found out last month about it. She’s an amazing illustrator and her dragons are so badass, check her stuff out here.
