I’ve still got a couple days left of the Drawing Challenge, which I started ages ago, so I’ve finally time to blog day 29.

‘Somewhere I’d Like to Go’. I’d wanted to live by the beach in Sydney for years and finally got to do so last year and couldn’t be happier! I did this quick illustration of sea urchins to capture what it is I like about the beach – the pretty pastel and subtle colours and blue shades of the ocean.

Day 22: Something I Miss

Happy nearly hump day! This has been a manic week for me and I haven’t been home much due to too many commitments for friends’ birthdays and whatnot… so here is a painting I started a while ago but I thought it would suit for Day 22: Something I Miss.

This painting sorta reminds me of my home town of Howth on the East coast of Ireland. Howth is a little coastal village which was settled by Vikings in 819. I miss its colourful pastel shop-fronts and walks along the pier to looking out to the island of Ireland’s Eye.

Draw Something

Draw Something!

That was the idea behind this project, which began as a Pinterest pin which led to a ‘why don’t we’ from an illustrator pal. And the Draw Something project was born! The brief is to draw something different every day for 30 days. These can be quick 5 minute sketches…I seem to be alot more time poor than I was in my art college days! I had been working as a graphic designer for some time and hadn’t illustrated anything by hand in a number of years. This was one sure-fire way get back in practice!
