Some months ago, when the sun was still shining brightly, photographer Damon Hyland and I collaborated on a project combining photographs and illustration. At the top, the finished product, and below it, my initial scribbles.
The bottom drawings are pen and ink scribbles on lo-res printouts; the top ones, gouache painted onto glossy prints. I realised that drawing with ink wouldn't necessarily work well on a glossy finish, and was delighted to find that gouache seems to be made for this job!
You can see bigger versions of the finished pics in my portfolio.
Have a look at Damon's portfolio here to see more of his work.
We've had a load of public holidays this past week, including a long weekend that coincided with the monthly stint at the Neighbourgoods Market. Heather's written a great post about the market here, with photos of some of the other vendors that are worth a look.
There's also a pic of me in my Jess jacket (yes, that's really what it's called) made from an Amelia Raitte pattern.
