Winter (Oil on board, Photoshop)

I know, I know, it's not a cartoon, but this is now the blog for Illustration Friday projects, and this week it was Winter. No time to do anything fresh, so this is a painting given the Photoshop treatment.

On Zanzibar

(Coloured pencils and markers in A6 accordion fold Moleskine)

This is the latest of my contributions to Moly_x_25. The previous contributor directed me to Zanzibar which, as any fule kno, is full of exotic tropical plants. The character and her dog is a continuing theme.

(2B mechanical pencil, coloured pencils on A6 cartridge)

Illustration Friday's brief is: Phenomenon. The benefits of this remarkable tropical plant, a true phenomenon, were kept hidden from the public for many years. It was left to the crusading spirits at the Daily Mail to reveal how much we owe to it and yet what a danger it presents.

This week's Illustration Friday brief - Prehistoric - happened to coincide with my rediscovery of a pencil rough for a rarely seen dinosaur. So I combined it with a sketchbook drawing of woodland and reworked the whole thing.
