Finished the last of the dog related illustrations and send them of. Now I am waiting eagerly for a web designer to use them. I must be patient for a couple of weeks now…So onwards and upwards with the next commission!
I am studying and experimenting with new (to me) materials and techniques. I learn a lot from other illustrators as well. I love the work by Lauren Child.
Here is the same drawing in a collage technique
A bit difficult to see, but this one is enhanced with silver and gold details
And than my usual technique with color pencils and fine liners.
And here a little sketch in pastel pencil, in honor of the marvelous writer Terry Pratchett. He passed away earlier this week. Not only is he the author of many of my favorite novels as ‘Mort’, ‘Witches Abroad’ and ‘The Wintersmith’ but he also wrote the most true and meaningful words: “It is still magic, you know, even if you know how it is done.”
Weer druk aan de slag maar nu met de volgende opdracht. Ik bestudeer nieuwe methodes. Hier is dezelfde illustratie uitgevoerd in collage, collage met goud en zilver accenten en in mijn gebruikelijk stijl met kleurpotlood en fijnlijners. Maakte ook een schets met pastel potloden, metTerry Pratchett in gedachten, de fantastische schrijver die eerder deze week overleed.
Have a Magical Weekend,
Love and Liefs, Johanna
ps All you Lovely Facebook People who did kind things on my FB page…please be patient…I still have hardly a clue what I am doing there. In few weeks, my IT fellow (Youngest Mr. Walker), will help me further!! But thank you all so much!!!
