Improved Imogen

Imogen, my first foray into the work of pinup illustration, never seemed quite finished. At the time I was trying to go for a more minimalist, line-oriented piece, but I found the other night that adding a little bit of color made a world of difference. Sparkley stars also helped.

Vector Shoe

I’ve been fairly busy lately with my portfolio. I’m proud to say that its coming along well, with a lot of my sketches being reused as templates for creating vector-based images for new projects. Here’s an example, created from a shoe I drew a few posts back .  . .

Rose Colored Glasses

This is actually an earlier sketch, with a bit of photoshop added. I decided to revisit it because it has more significance in relation to the rest of my illustration, as its main purpose is to convey emotion, rather than just to say “Hey, here’s a face I drew.” A wonderful piece to look at. I’d love to trace it and turn it into something more complete, but it would lose the sublime, spontaneous style that can only really happen in the moment.

Glamour with Colors

I dug this lovely face out of my drawer of past projects. Pieces like this always remind me of the beauty of shapes and colors, in addition to just lines. Its a style worth perfecting . . .
