Rapture Painting

Here is my finished painting (and some progress shots) for the Illustrators Australia Rapture exhibition. I'm going to get get it professionally scanned and printed, just in case someone fancies buying it in the auction. I'll be surprised if someone does. I gave it my best shot with the time & skills I had and happy with the result. I think my inked version is the best looking of the bunch, I have more skill with a pen than a brush.

I still draw stuff...

At the moment Im really busy with Mollusks the Series & can't really do any personal drawing unless its for my CN bible and I cant show that stuff. So I thought id share these drawings I did at the start of the year. They were for a project that hasn't really gone anywhere & if it did at all in the future, Im sure the illustrations will be different. Anyway, I didnt want them to go to waste.

Blah, blah, TV business, blah.

I was on TV this week on an Australian current affairs show called Today Tonight, where I was just faffing about in clothes for a story on garment & how they stand up to Australian tests. Anyway, here are the many emotions of my upper torso & my face talking like a ponce about how "I was really surprised at the quality of the cheaper range of clothing...blah blah blah"...idiot face. I even got my own "Fail" graphic!
Good news, I just got a job as a lighting stand-in for an actor in an Australian film for October through to November, full time & something Ive never done before, yay money! So I will most likely be unavailable for work during that period.

Rapture...work in progress.

I'm going to be submitting a painting for the Illustrators Australia 16th Annual 9x5 Exhibition, where members paint onto a supplied bit of wood, similar to a cigar box. This year's theme is 'Rapture' & here is my rough sketch and inked illustration. Ill be printing it out reversed, so I can then rub a lead print of it onto my wood as a guide for when I paint. The finished product won't be as heavily inked as this, its just a guide for my brain. The finished paintings will go up for auction, I'll have to make sure I get a really good scan done, because I want my own print for my wall. Looking forward to painting this...all my dearly departed pets are in here somewhere.
