Hitting the blogging wall
July 31, 2012
I suspected my initial blogging enthusiasm might wane and, lo and behold, it has a bit. A new Mac to sort out, new software to install and get used to, lots of sometimes awkward freelance work, some unexpectedly sunny weather ( this is the UK, remember?), all conspired to distract me from my blogging activities. Missed me? OK, I thought not Anyway, as a sort of lazy stopgap I thought I might just post a selection of work as I go along, stuff I like ( plenty I feel a bit meh about will remain hidden) or that’s interesting for whatever reason. I may comment, I may not, but here’s just a start…. I decided to return to my tree roots ( geddit? Tree? Roots? oh, never mind) and draw some more trees for my istock portfolio, they’re my sort of trademark there, so here are a couple more. I also discovered at the back of a dusty digital cupboard some nice peeling paint texture which I had digitised from a photo I took of some paintwork on a barn near here, so I started applying that to all sorts of images with enthusiasm, I could revive old images quite easily with a new look. If anyone is interested, here’s a link to my trees portfolio on stock…
Rol up, roll up, get yore luvverly trees ‘ere etc etc
The guys who designed our website also asked me to do some drawing for a presentation they were doing to a client of theirs, an Italian paper manufacturer, too… here they are….
