Barcelona photos part 1: Figures! (and a lizard, because why not.)

I took a crazy amount of photos because I didn’t have much time to sit around and draw things so hopefully I will be doing some drawing from them soon.

I’m off to Barcelona tomorrow! Woo hoo! :D 

I’m hoping I’ll get to do a bit of drawing but most likely I’ll draw from photos when I get back as I want to get to see as much as possible in our few days there. I’ll be back next week and hopefully finally getting down to some more illustration work besides the design job I’ve been working on for a local museum.

Also, my Bestiary Calendars have FINALLY BEEN ORDERED! XD 
This means that as of Thursday next week, Bestiary Calendars will be available to buy on my soon-to-be-revealed new online shop. Keep an eye out if you want one as I’ve only printed a limited number!

See you again soon!

Some sketchbook doodles from my Drink and Draw group last night.
Trying to remember how to draw like a normal human again, after not getting off the computer for quite a long while!

I finally got hold of the photos from my bestiary workshop at the Museum of Cambridge last month!

The kids made monsters by cutting up and combining the shapes of museum objects. 

You can see more of the photos on my Bestiary Project blog HERE. :)

I started redesigning my Bestiary logo and created the whole upper case alphabet typography. It was fun to do! I may do the lower case as well as I need to do some lower case to finish the logo anyway.

I made some small alterations to the Dragon and the Siren from my Bestiary Project series too. Nearly done with the typography and layout for the calendars I’m ordering. :3

The re-worked Centaur illustration for my Bestiary Project.

All 12 done now! Now working on some typography and printing options to get these printed as calendars this week. Then I’ll be looking into local venues to have my own little exhibition and sell some prints and cards, which should also be going up on the online shop I’m setting up this month. :)

Updated my Mermaid from my Bestiary Project a little. Re-did the tail. 
Just a few more bits of editing to do and then I can order the 2015 Bestiary calendar! :)

My final Bestiary illustration: Amphisbaena!

I still have to go back and do some editing on some of the older ones in the set but other than that I’m pretty much done. Can’t believe I’m finally looking at the end of a project I’ve been working on for nearly 2 years on and off!

A coat of arms design for Birmingham University RocSoc.

The first one is the finished coloured version and the black and white ones are refined roughs. They’d normally be much sketchier but I got carried away because I really enjoyed designing this one. I would love to do some more coat of arms designs in future.
