A Little Work in Progress

Just thought I’d share a WIP of that Jules Verne illustration. Also note my failed attempt at stretching the watercolour paper. . . Apart from that I’m pretty happy with the illustration. It’s a very different process from what I normally do - i.e. inking first and then painting, which can sometimes feel like painting in between the lines a bit - so we’ll see if I stick to this.

It Seemed Like Only Yesterday

Or perhaps last year.

Anyway, in a bid to start uploading just a bit more than I have, I decided to start a little illustration project; illustrating Diana Wynne Jones’ Howl’s Moving Castle. It’ll just be some small black and white chapter illustrations and possibly a cover design (if I get around to that). The idea was to do them quickly, as they’re relatively simple, but I highly doubt that’ll happen.
