Back to the Basics

So I’m back home…. and I’m already bored. As I don’t have my regular art supplies I’m reduced to the stuff I left behind. I was sure I left some Indian Ink behind, but nope all I found was poster paint. I remembered my frustration whenever I tried to get a solid colour with the stuff, having to add layer upon layer to get the result I wanted only to leave it as it took so long; Ah GCSE 😀 So I feel like making a series of Tigers, they seem to be everywhere at the moment. I love the creatures and if you remember a few blog posts back I did a short series then of the amazing creatures. Now not to offend any non believers, but I’m amazed whenever I see God’s creation at it’s best. Love these creatures, I can be so happy to have a reserve and simply sketch animals all day. So this is the first of hopefully many AND I WILL OVERCOME MY HATRED FOR POSTER PAINT!

Brotherhood

HEY I’m back! Well I came back on the 29th June, just had nothing to post. Got bored so decided to paint again :D. This time it was for a little youth group I help lead on Sundays. We decided to call ourselves the Brotherhood probably because the group is mainly composed of us negroes so I had to paint something simple to reflect what we stood for. Thanks to google I stumbled upon a bible verse to inspire me, 1 Peter 2:17

‘Honour all mankind. Love the brotherhood. Fear God. Honour the king.’

Nice little verse and this is what I got from it, well and the fact that I’ve always been inspired by Frank Shepard Fairey’s style of vector art illustrations :D.

I’m still a bit rusty but I hope to improve my vector style, I LOVE VECTOR ART!!!

I’ll also find some time to post pictures from my holiday that inspire me creatively.
