Hope life is treating you well and feeding you lots of chocolate.
A lot has happened over here for the past few months. I've been doing commissions for various people and companies, so I thought I'd just share them (I always like hearing feedback!).
First up is a watercolour painting with inklines on a roughly A3 sized sheet of textured paper.
Zeh Japanese lady! A person commissioned it as she needed a gift for a friend.
This is one of the very rare times I used black ink for lines. Now.. I'm starting to really get a taste for it. Gah!
Here's another commission for a burlesque lady who wanted a portrait of her in her favourite dress and wig:
Watercolour and pencil. A3 size again.
And... The largest scaled commission I've been asked to do to date. A larger than A2 painting in watercolour. I'm not gonna lie, I was crapping myself while doing this.
I think one of the major issues with doing traditional large scale paintings is that.. Well.. If you mess up, you've just used up a lot of material and you're gonna have to redo everything again. So I think I was very cautious when I did that painting. Not sure if that's kinda reflected in it.
Here are two lil pages of two different graphic novel projects that I've got on at the moment. They are both unfinished and unlettered:
Bayou Arcana (Short story for an anthology):
Skal (My own graphic novel):
And finally, here's a painting that turned into a print and has ended up in a shop in my city. Happy Jen!
