Suspend

I just got back from vacationing in Wildwood,NJ. The topic for Illustration Friday topic Suspend this week! Although I didn’t see any seagulls steal quite this much food I’m sure it has happened to someone at some point. This seagull loves to steal pizza!


Hitched

This week over at IllustrationFriday.com the topic is “Hitched”.
I decided to re-interpret a drawing I had made previously.
I based the piece on a drawing I did a little less than a year ago for my blog Penandmarker.wordpress.com. You can see the original drawing here. I drew that illustration for my 2 year wedding anniversary. I have been trying to keep my work simple and I think I accomplished that with this peice. I am also happy that I made this illustration in about an hour and a half and am still going to get to bed before 11:30pm!

I got a new computer and it took me a little while till I got a new copy of CS5 (since my old CS3 wouldn’t run on the newer macs). Anyway, it’s been awhile since I did anything for Illustration Friday so I thought that would be my first project to work on. I kept it real simple for this illustration, and made a cityscape with water in front. It would work pretty well as a album cover or something along those lines I think. Anyway, if you’d like to see more of my artwork go check out my gallery or Penandmarker.wordpress.com where I draw and post something everyday for 365 days, I’m on # 217 today!


Yield

Here is another illustration that I did for the website Illustrationfriday.com. This week the topic over on the page was Yield. I tried to do something a little different this time, so instead of doing a digital illustration I decided to make the illustration using acrylic paint, markers and colored pencils. Hope you enjoy!


Intention

This week’s Illustration Friday word was “Intention”. My intention is to paint more this summer. I drew a man standing in front of his easel after painting a sky scene. I had him thinking unhappy thoughts because he isn’t happy with his own work, which is something I think a lot of artists can relate to. His intention was to create something maybe a little different than what he ended up creating. I also wasn’t sure what to put on his t-shirt but I finally decided on Keith Haring’s Golden Child(at least I think that is what it is titled). Hope you all like it!


Capable

This weeks word at Illustrationfriday.com was capable. I decided to keep this weeks illustration simple and drew up a muscled and capable arm flexing.

I did try something new with this illustration though, I took a white piece of paper and splattered some black paint on it. After that was done I let the paper dry and then scanned it. In Photoshop I removed the white so that all but the black was transparent. Next I imported the splatters in over the background. Finally I turned down the opacity, and what you see above is the final image after tweaking it a bit.


Swirl

This week’s If topic is Twirl, I have been drawing quite a bunch of things recently so I thought I would do something quickly for this week. I got Twirl mixed up with Swirl, but they are basically the same thing. My favorite ice cream is vanilla and orange swirl… so I drew one! It’s funny, recently all I have been posting on this site has been related to food in one way or another.
