What a busy May it’s been! Not great for drawing, but I did find some time recently to try out a lovely new brush. The bear drawings is based on a character a friend of mine developed. View more in the sketchbook.

Such a busy, busy time! But I couldn’t help myself – I miss these characters and haven’t done anything with them in months!
I love silhouettes and wanted to try something rooted in that aesthetic. Once I did, it just seemed right to color them, which I tried with a similar silhouette-like sensibility.
I’m sure someone else has already figured out how to do this better than I have (and I’d love to see their work), but it’s great fun to experiment with!
I’m working on a Beast character (of the Beauty and the Beast variety) for a larger story and don’t know which of these five to go with. Which beast do you think is best?
And now for something completely different. I found this castle drawing recently from a pen-and-ink course I took about this time last year. It needed some tweaking and has finally received it. View it in illustration.
