Illustration Friday: Stuffed

, , ,

It’s been a little while (…like 4 years) since I’ve played the Illustration Friday game, so here is my interpretation of this week’s topic: Stuffed.

Entirely sketched during my traditional Sunday visit to the Penarth pier and initially designed to be the Charactron of the day (Pepper face), I realised that:

  • a pepper can be stuffed
  • a monkey can be stuffed by a pepper

Ideal combination. So, for the first time ever, I fancied up this Charactron (added colours) and ended up with exactly that: “un singe bleu qui se mange un bon poivron rouge”.

IF: Winter

After a couple of Illustration Friday failures I finally managed to sketch a little something during today’s Eurostar trip. This Winter is cold but feels warm. Oh la la.

Here’s my Illustration Friday submission of the week (I’ve said that before but I’m going to try to submit every week from… now… hopefully) for: Crunchy!

With 2009 nearly done I illustrated what has been the crunchiest topic of the year: the credit (crunch, yes). I initiated a style a bit more realistic this time and not as colourful as usual with, eventually, something a bit more meaningful.

IF: Intricate

, , , ,


Here’s my instant interpretation of this week Illustration Friday: Intricate. I tried my new eco-friendly wax pastels from Caran D’Ache for the first time and get impressed by how easy is it to mix colours together and fill up large amount of the spread very quickly.

It Might sounds silly but among my current illustration course, I’m just rediscovering how good it is to draw traditionnaly rather than digitally. The variety of drawing tools, papers, colours is a fantastic sources of inspiration and beat my old pixels friends. Well, I still like digital but I’ve just forget a bit too much about simplicity of paper!
