Inktober Week 4 Drawings

My favourite #Inktober2019 work

I’m pleased to have made it through to the fourth and final week of #Inktober. Here are this week’s ink artworks… apologies that they aren’t in order.

A tricky prompt was day 25, tasty. I did a line drawing which has been a bit of a breakthrough piece for me as it has helped me realise that it is conceptual illustration that I really want to excel at.

I did an ink line drawing which I then developed into a painted piece. Painted on the beach whilst on holiday in Turkey, in my favourite watercolours.

“The Doctor will see you now”. Ink and cherry 🍒 juice.

I’m not really into Halloween anymore but the illustration prompts are all part of the challenge. So here is my macabre drawing for the Day 22 #Inktober prompt Ghost and #portfolioclub which gave me the haunted prompts ‘doctor’ and ‘conservatory’.

#inktober2019 #doctor #hauntedhouse #conservatory #drawingchallenge #surgeon #ghost

#Inktober day 23 prompt is ancient.

Happened upon this ancient species today, sadly it was dead. So have honoured it for today’s #inktober2019 drawing.

This fascinating ancient species was a pleasure to study.

#dragonfly #inktober

These next three pieces I drew inflight, whilst travelling back from my holiday. I find the seating and table position on aircraft ideal for drawing.

Inktober day 27 prompt is coat. This and recent observations made me think about how inhibitions, self-consciousness and fear can become a heavy, restrictive coat, holding a person back from fully enjoying life.

#inktober2019 #fear #inhibitions #selfconsciousness

#Inktober day 28 prompt is Ride. This made me think about going with the flow, accepting with positivity whenever possible what happens. It’s all about the journey.

#inktober2019 #ride #rollercoaster #illustrator #illustration #flow

#Inktober day 29 prompt is Injured. This of course took me back to my knee injury and this climb back from injury that I’ve illustrated is ‘inspired’ by the long rehab experience.

I started with a page from #breathemagazine that I thought represented the climb back from the lows of injury, the uphill struggle and having to keep picking oneself up, both mentally and physically. Drawn inflight.

#inktober2019 #injury #rehab #unhappytriad #aclreconstruction

#inktober day 24 prompt Dizzy was apt as I’ve been different from labyrinthitis for the past few weeks. I tried to represent how this feels. #illustration

#inktober2019 #dizzy #labyrinthitis

#Inktober day 26 prompt is dark. When one feels angry and grouchy for no apparent reason, and then when it passes you feel calm ms blissful.

This one is how it feels to have completed the daily drawing challenge!

#inktober #acceptance #beinghuman #inktober2019 #itstoughbeinghuman

#inktober day 30 prompt is catch. At this time of year this has to be about catching a cold when people don’t catch their coughs and sneezes.

#catchacold #inktober2019 #illustration #illustrator #ink

#Inktober day 31 – the final prompt of the month is Ripe. Without colour ripeness if a tricky thing to show so I thought about readiness, strength, mental preparedness in the form of belief, being at your best, in your prime and from somewhere came a superhero strawberry wearing power pants.

And with that I’ll call #inktober2019 officially done. And I’ll sigh, rest my eyes for a moment and then get on to the next project, powered up and ready for creative challenges.

#ready #yougotthis #youcan #ican #powerpants #illustration #strawberry #ink #draw #illustrator

Ps I find this piece kind of weird but haven’t got time to do anything else. 🤣

Also in a line drawn style I recently made this card for the newest bundle of joy to arrive in our family. Tiny sparkles were added to the paper card which was personalised with baby’s name and birth date.

Cheers for being here to see my work. Sharing helps me to continue developing my work. I figure it will only get better with practise and keeping creating. So support and feeling my work is reaching people really helps spur me on. I’m always interested to read comments and hear which pieces you like so feel free to comment. Supportive comments always most welcome.

Here are the previous weeks drawings. I’ll be selecting my favourite ones and then calling #Inktober2019 done!

Here are the highlights from my first Inktober in 2017. I didn’t do the challenge in 2018.

Already it’s week two of #Inktober

#Inktober day 8 prompt is frail.

I feel the most important message for this prompt is to reduce our impact on the planet 🌍

#loveourplanet #healtheearth #use_less #inktober2019 #illustration

Inktober prompt “Swing” immediately made me think of Sia’s track Chandelier, which became my motivating and emotive anthem after I blew my knee.

I felt so grounded by the injury and just wanted to get off the ground and literally swing from a chandelier.

Pattern is the next prompt for #inktober Featuring some of my favourite things.

Inktober day 11 prompt is Snow. Here’s a snowflake created with skis, ski poles, boots and goggles. Bringing together snow and how we love to use it most.

#ski #snowflake #skiflake #inktober #inktober2019 #illustration #illustrator #ink #inktober #❤️ski

Inktober day 12 prompt Dragon made me think of my little buddy’s fav toy.

#inktober #inktober2019 #dragon #cutedog #lhasaapso

Day 13 #inktober prompt Ash had to be my big brother.

#inktober2019 #ski #skier #❤️ski

Inktober day 14 prompt is Overgrown. It’s a comment on the way that people say that they need to move home as they don’t have room for all their stuff.

#excess #chooseneedoverwant #overshop #inktober #inktober2019

#inktober2019 day 15 prompt word was legend which made me think of Florence Nightingale for her groundbreaking work. Enjoyed a visit to the Florence Nightingale Museum earlier this year.

Tried this in two different styles.

#ink #inktober #strongwomen #girlpower

Inktober Day 16 prompt Wild has to be about letting wild animals be wild and have space to roam. I love this scene as it would never happen in a zoo. The zebra is bucking the lion.

#wild #inktober #inktober2019

#liveandletlive #wildanimals #allwildlifematters

I also created this tennis club event image for promotional use on social media…

So, onto Week 3!

Thanks for taking the time to see my work.

#PortfolioClub September -Folk Costume

I cringed when I read the brief for September’s #portfolioclub “Folk Costume”, but illustration briefs aren’t always going to be something I’m jumping up and down to illustrate, so I ploughed on, trying to keep an open mind.

However I have enjoyed the exercise; probably because I decided to illustrate a costume based on my favourite things, the sun, nature and rainbows. If Inspire by Kim was a country this would be the costume, echoing the beauty of life.

This was an early drawing where I was developing the idea of the costume mirroring the environment.

I developed the idea whilst travelling so in black pen and then added colour digitally.

the Inktense version was less effective.

This concept then started to feel a little fluffy and idealistic and wasn’t saying enough about my causes. So I had a think about what the costume would be for this theme…

I might revisit this alternative concept but the first concept felt incomplete. I came to the conclusion that either way a folk costume should be illustrated using fabric.

So I free machine embroidered the design onto a shiny fabric from @sunnybankmills.

I then painted the design with fabric paints from @colourcraft.

Next stage was to hand sew and embellish the dress.

Here’s the completed work with embroidery silks, thread, metallic thread, glass beads and crystal organza.

I’m pleased with the final outcome and now wondering what next month’s #portfolioclub will be. See all the illustrations at the #portfolioclub hashtag on Instagram.

Illustrated Recipe – Buns

Instagram Post: Prompted by @flow_magazine #50waystodrawyourbeautifulordinarylife using the techniques from @tutorbill ’s course #drawpaintclickillustration

With #inktober in mind, and the instructional illustration prompt for #portfolioclub for August, I drew the elements of the recipe whilst travelling to Wembley Stadium and back by train.

One of my favourite books at the moment is, Flow Magazine’s 50 Ways To Draw Your Beautiful Ordinary Life, which set a task of an illustrated recipe, as a family heirloom. I thought it would be sweet to use French for this for my neice.

After adding some colour in Inktense pencils I added water to activate the ink pigment.
These pretty buns made with my niece, who so carefully and beautifully decorated them, were the inspiration for this recipe illustration.

I assembled my drawings in Pixelmator app using a vertical flow for the instructions., I wanted the colour to be subtle and to keep the recipe more drawings than words.

Here is the final outcome,

This is a favourite recipe from family baking as a child, if you bake it do enjoy and it would be lovely to see what you’ve made and hear about it,

Creative Apps, Tools and Tips

I thought it may be helpful to share some creative apps, favourite tools and tips for use in visual arts and design.

CamScanner App

A great convenient, ‘on the go’ tool for scanning using your phone and the CamScanner app. You can either take a scan/picture using the app or can import an image to convert that into a scan. The app locates the boundaries of your image and adjusts the light so you can even scan in low light. It’s a huge time saver and has a good memory capacity before it requires any payment. You don’t get bugged by ads. CamScanner is 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 in my opinion.

CamScanner App screen grab
Screen grab of my CamScanner latest work

iPhone XS

My phone is a key tool in my work, for photographing, drawing, editing. The camera on this phone model takes beautiful images and the ‘portrait’ mode is a useful feature for product shots and photographing work. I like the ‘pano’ feature for creative shots. Couldn’t function without this. Great size, weight and stable when used with a tripod. iPhone XS 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

Screen grab of my photo album.
I take a LOT of photos and create new designs on my iPhone

Pixelmator App

How I love Pixelmator. I can’t say how much I use it as it’s seamless in my work. I’m probably across in the app 5 times a day. Layering images, drawing, adding text, creating social media ads, resizing, mocking up ideas, creating repeat patterns. The app is intuitive, making it easy to learn and to use. This is a corker of a creative tool 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

Bernina Sewing Machine

I would never have thought that I could love a sewing machine as much as I do my Bernina. It’s reliable, compact, and with the digital display I know what the machine settings are at a glance. I want to make the marks myself so I’m not interested in sewing machines that take over and do the sewing themselves. Swiss engineering is renowned and my Bernina is a fabulous example of this that runs like clockwork. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

YouTube

A learning gateway for everything you might ever want to learn about, where someone always seems to have the answer for using a new product, or technique. I’m going to give YouTube 🌟🌟🌟🌟 as the ads can be annoying, but then again it’s ‘free’. YouTube is about the people who take the time to share their experiences and knowledge. Of course it’s best to watch a few videos for any given subject to be able to gather a few perspectives/ methods.

I’ve always enjoyed making films so I love that I can share my movies and reach people through YouTube. Here’s a link to go to my channel.

50 Ways to Draw Your Beautiful Ordinary Life

This book is like a hug of a drawing course. The creators of Flow magazine have done something magical by bringing together exercises from their illustrators to make this big beautiful collection of inspiring, drawing skills inducing delight. Love it with some good TV and a pencil or fine liner. ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ Flow Magazine.

Instagram

The place to see image based posts, as opposed to more wordy content. A window on creative studios, processes and what everyone is working on, it’s such a creative time that we live in. Instagram makes the world shrink to the size of the app and I love how we can connect with kindred creatives and find people with shared interests. And there’s always someone somewhere on Instagram, even in the middle of my night – when the darkness becomes a blank creative canvas for new idea seeds to germinate in my mind. Hoping the ads, which have increased in frequency, don’t takeover, like they appear to have on sister site Facebook 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

Also I have to mention PicCollage, which now allows a mix of still images and videos in collages, and WordPress for my blog.

I hope this proves helpful. Wanted to share these findings and also this is a way of expressing gratitude for this tremendous tech and fabulous phone based functions which are my fundamental tools.

Fabric Design Steps

This image shows the three key stages of fabric design that I’ll be demonstrating and sharing at my workshop on Sunday 2nd June in Sheffield.

Step One is a design worked out on paper.

Step Two is to create the design in heat sensitive dyes on paper.

You can apply the dyes to paper using paint brushes, or you can collage painted papers or you can stamp the dyes onto paper. No drawing skills are required but some thoughts on composition are worthwhile.

The colours in this stage of the process are very different from the final outcome, as demonstrated in this short colour sample video.

 

Like any art work you can spend as much or as little time on your design as you wish. You can print your design and then move the design and over print if you like.

You can print a number of times from the dyes, although each later print will be slightly unique from the previous one, but we experiment with time and colour during the workshop.

Step Three is to press the paper with the heat sensitive dyes together with your desired fabric at high heat for a few seconds. This will activate the dyes and make them turn into gas, to wrap around the fabrics fibres and thus transferring them.

In seconds you’ve got your designed fabric and it can become whatever your imagination will allow.

If you’d rather watch than read – See this process in less than 40 seconds in this video. https://youtu.be/xnt9NKFmhKo

A second example

As a recap on the process here’s an alternative design, a small coastal landscape design made by collaging torn papers which had been painted with transfers dyes.

Step One: I had a seaside composition in mind to fit into a greeting card window.

Step Two: I collaged torn paper to compose the picture. Note I have not drawn anything in this piece. For many people drawing skills, of their perception of their skills can be a barrier to them enjoying art. That’s a shame as there are many other ways to make marks and create. This is just one suggestion.

Step Three – I heat pressed the design onto one, then another piece of fabric.

I’ll be sewing into the design next before mounting it in into the greeting card for a unique, handmade, frameable gift.

If you’d like to try these techniques for yourself you can book at the Stitched Up and Fleeced website. Stitched Up and Fleeced is a lovely studio with great facilities which are ideal for our workshop.

The workshop will be from 10am to 4pm giving chance to learn techniques and enjoy exploring them and developing your ideas using these new possibilities.

Whether your a textile artist, crafter, designer, or just fancy trying something new you’ll be creating in no time and will have a number of fabric designs by the end of the day. Your fabric designs could be framed, appliqued, made into accessories such as zip bags, glasses cases, cushions, home decor, gifts and so on.

You can see more details of the workshop day at this post. When you’re ready to book you can do that here.

Passion for Textile Flowers

Everlasting passionflower lovingly crafted from textiles.

After considering different fabrics I decided to use satin with scrim behind for the third flower experiment.
IMG_0954.jpg
It was important that I create depth for the flower’s corona filaments, anthers and stigmas. I used felt, a bead and embroidery silks.
My intention whilst working at Chelsea College of Arts at the start of the month was to create screen printed designs that I could later add 3D passionflowers to.

A passionflower couldn’t exist without its leaves. I created this one using satin that I have designed and printed using Colourcraft products, with felt behind/underside made at Stitched Up and Fleeced in Sheffield.

The final addition was the tendrils shaped with a little love as inspiration. Photographed in the sun, which is what prompts the passionflowers to reveal their striking beauty.

Thanks so much for reading to the end. I’m delighted with this work and will be looking at the display of it. So watch this space by popping your email address in the box at the top of the page to follow my blog. Normally a maximum of one post per week, a little bright creativity into your inbox

And finally here are flowers I painted in pomegranate juice (and a little green watercolour). The juice was a stunning pink so I could resist making art with it. The work is inspired by a great book I’m reading The Joy of Watercolour by Emma Block.

Additional inspiration from the Botanica book by Uppercase magazine. A delightful treat of a book.

#Inktober Week 4 – The Finale

What an experience Inktober has been. An ink drawing a day for 31 days. This was my first #Inktober.

Week One, Week Two, and my favourite week Week Three, drawings are at these clicks. Interesting to feel the progression and development of daily practice has had on my drawing skills, I feel that I use and hold the pen differently and can mark the paper more accurately. My typography and lettering is much more how I’d like it to look as I try to convey different energy in the words. 

It’s been great to part of something global and see what different responses have been created to the prompt words (pictured). The challenge was to draw and instagram a drawing each day for 31 days.

‘Juice’ was Day 23’s prompt word. As I’m working on ‘series’ of illustrations I created series of fruity characters. #inktober2017 #inktober #illustration #illustrator #sheffieldartist #fruit #juice #lemon #orange #lime #grapefruit #pendrawings #strawberry #sun #eshortcourses #characters
#inktober ‘Juice’ character drawing developed further.

Day 24’s prompt word is ‘Blind’. Rightly or wrongly this is what came to mind.

This #inktober motivation for the final days was rousing.
 

‘Today’s #inktober prompt word ‘Climb’ set me thinking about climbing over adversity aiming for a good life, our efforts supported by love, inspiration and experience - weighed down by fear, held back by negativity but helped along by resilience, determination and by those who believe in us.  I’m really pleased with this piece as it’s very aligned with the values that underpin my work.
