#illo52 weeks – Weeks 27, 28, 29, 30 & 31

Where has five weeks gone? This week I am posting the past five weeks of illustrations that I have created for Tania McCartney’s 52 week Illustration Challenge.

Week 27 – Snow

This is one of my illustrations that has received the most popular feedback and amount of comments so far. Created using a Gelli art plate, acrylic paint and a black fine liner. I like it’s simplicity.

Week 28 – Feather

I had been printing some feathers using my gelli art plate. Brushing over the feathers to create templates. The feathers left marks on the plastic table cloth and I suddenly saw an image in my mind. So I drew straight onto the table cloth this little girl.

Week 29 – Plane

Gelli art again. I love the multi-coloured layers that can be created using this technique. I really want to get so much better at it.

Week 30 – Sydney

Adobe Illustrator

My trial using Adobe Illustrator ran out on at the end of this image. I had just finished when I realised a mistake on the stamp edging to the right, but I couldn’t open up the software again to fix it.

Week 31 – Lines

Artliner 0.4/ Watercolour paint

Just a quick fun one. I have no idea why I felt the need to draw long elongated figures. It’s just what my hand felt like doing. It took me a few days to figure out what I was going to do with the sketch. The characters started off as aliens, then birds and then humans. 😀

The next theme starts on Wednesday: Psychedelic!

#illo52weeks – week 26: Clouds

This week I tried a new medium: Gelli art. I had so  much fun with it as did my nine year old daughter.

I watched a few you tube videos and videos on Pinterest to see what you can create with it. This is what I did for this weeks theme:

Clouds No. 1 – Polar bear under snow cloud

Acrylic paint rolled onto the gelli plate

cut out card templates block the paint from covering the whole sheet of paper that I lay ontop of the plate

Clouds No.2 – Balloon floating up to the clouds

This time I used more than one colour, plus cloud templates. I then experimented with brushing paint across the Gelli plate (yellow, white, red) and laid the paper down to add to the first print.

Thanks goes to Jess Racklyeft who demonstrated this technique within her own amazing illustrations as a fellow participant in Tania McCartney’s 52 week Illustration Challenge.
