After a clogged up week of struggling to do my ‘own thing’ I feel I’m back on track. I guess we all get bogged down now and again in having to do dull mundane things. Sometimes for me the balance of being creative and being commercial clashes.
But a few good things this week, firstly I discovered some fabulous watercolour paper that can be used in my printer. I can now print black and white images that I’ve drawn and then hand colour with inks or watercolours. The Rose hips picture that I have hand coloured here is now for sale in the shop.
I want to do some smaller images with this technique so they can be put on to greetings cards. I’ve given up on getting greetings cards printed commercially as I just cant complete with the low prices that big stores sell them for. Tis hard times for the independent!
Secondly i ordered a selection of postcards with various illustrations that I’ve done over the year on them. They just arrived and I am very pleased. So much cheaper to get postcards printed! I think I will sell them in sets. I just have to work out the price.
Also good old Illustration Friday that always keeps me challenged every week. This weeks topic is Moustache. Not a detailed illustration from me this week as I haven’t much time to devote to it but here it is…….
