The latest illustrations for the Ski A-Z book are for the contrasting subjects of Avalanche, Zest and Zen.
Avalanche Kit Essentials – new page illustration on a serious subject for the Ski A-Z book. This will follow the lighter mood Apres-Ski illustration.
Training for Avalanche scenarios is advisable as part of a tool kit of knowledge and equipment.
Concept inspired by the @actionman_official toy kits that my brother had when we children.
Illustration prompted by the many people who tragically lost their lives in avalanches this season.
The exhilaration, full body workout, fresh air and stunning scenery makes skiing a fabulous way to switch off from the daily grind, to get new perspective, and to revitalise the spirit.
Ski illustration on a citrus theme for @makeartthatsells Bootcamp, doubling up for the Ski A-Z.
I love the idea of skiing through beautiful citrus flowers that have fallen. Really enjoyed creating this piece.
This is a truly multimedia piece, the mountains are sewn using free motion embroidery techniques (on my trusty Bernina sewing machine) and there’s watercolour and digital work.
Z for ‘Zen’ in the Ski A-Z book.
Zen mountain meditation to illustrate time to enjoy restorative calm.
I find that after the exhilaration of the day on the mountain there is a quiet satisfying stillness. It’s like the vibration of the body is calmed; and the muscles are relaxed, soft and numb feeling, in a good way, after the dynamism of the sport.
Painted in watercolour, metallic inks, and with diamanté jewels.
I’ll be completing the Ski A-Z book in the coming months, follow to see the project progress to fruition.
Here are the latest posts… thanks so much for being here.
