Quick speed painting, about 20 minutes.
January 9th, 2012
We were given the complete set of Harry Potter movies for Christmas. So we’ve been watching our way through them with the kids. As a result this mornings speed painting was of some random dark wizard.
Done in Alchemy with some colour tweaks in Photoshop, took about an hour.

My wife and I love Doctor Who, so for this Christmas I wanted to do something slightly different for her. River Song is one of our favorite characters (along with Captain Jack) so I wanted to make River’s famous blue book.
Book cover was made from cardboard bound with faux leather and painted with several layers of blues to build up the highlights.
Pages are simply stained with coffee to age them. Images and text were a combination of images printed and worked into with ink, paint and pencil and straight up drawings done by hand.
The cover could use a little more work but it turned out pretty well and my wife loved it (combined it with a Tardis Key) which is the important thing.

It has been a little longer than I had anticipated since I last updated. Once again I’ve been finding myself a tad busy lately as a result updates have fallen by the wayside. So I figured I would update with the typography experiments I was working on this morning. I can never get the hang of typography it never looks quite right to me. So I have been experimenting in order to improve in that area.

It’s been a while since I’ve sketched out and about. Had to take the car into the shop earlier in the week, as a result my daughter Elizabeth and I were sat there for a few hours. So I decided to take one of my sketchbooks along with me whilst we waited.
After sketching few things around the mechanic’s office Elizabeth asked me to draw her as she played her DS. So here it is, a quick 5-10 minute sketch in ink pen, with another 5 mintues of quick “colouring” in Photoshop.
Was a bit of a pain as she couldn’t keep still to save her life.
