I’m back baby, I’m back. I was so excited to be back on Instagram after a long period without it that I made a little bit of handdrawn type. My old phone was too decrepit to run any apps, now I am the proud possessor of a shiny new piece of modernity. Suddenly realised after I wrote this where the quote was from… George Costanza! Not the perfect role model.
I joined in with Illo Advent on Twitter this year – a quick sketch or illustration each day of advent, like a digital advent calendar. I got a bit busy with work as Christmas drew near so I stopped before the big day. I was surprised how much of a mixed bag I made – sketches, ink drawings, cut paper 3d pieces. Here are a few of them.
Well it was a little while ago now, but the US election result had many illustrators responding in ink in the immediate aftermath. I just found out that my image was number 17 on The Telegraph’s list of the best cartoons reacting to the news of Donald Trump’s win.
I had a great night live drawing portraits at Lights of Soho for Art Rookie.
To reflect the super cool neon lights that make this venue so unique, I worked in neon colour (pink, yellow or blue) and white on black paper.
In the photo above, the fashion style portrait on the white paper is by Carmen Johnson who you can find on Instagram at @carmenjohnsonillo
