Who doesn’t like some late night fan artwork? I thought I would do something a little different this week and post some of my personal favourites. I don’t know who did all of the images below but I thought it was worth sharing. If you think there’s some I’m missing, just comment below and I will add it to the Gallery!
What a completely crazy couple of months it has been, but me and the husband (hehe!) are finally starting to settle into our new home! So, I promise to get back to my artist a week/month. There are so many amazing talents out there that people should know about and I have even came across mediums I didn’t know existed.
I have also remembered how much I adore manga art thanks to an old ImagineFX magazine that was lying in the depths of the “spare bedroom” box. Or it could have something to do with re-watching Pokemon right from the very start…it’s all about those eyes!
On a side note, I’m very excited that two of my favourite artists Olivia Rose and Sabrina Eras are doing a group show in Malaysia on the 22nd of September! A bit outwith my reach but if you’re in that area it should be amazing. There will be other artists there too so I need to have a wee nosey and see what they’re upto!
Anyway, it’s good to get back to normality…a little
All I have been able to find out about this incredible artist is this; David ‘Meggs’ Hooke – Australian artist, street artist & designer. His work can be described in a few words…”f*cking awesome”. *Apologies*
I found Meggs work on Instagram as his work was displayed at the Thinkspace Art Gallery a few months ago and I’ve been swooning over his artwork since. You should definitely check out his progress on the “reinvention” of an abandoned church in DC, it’s mind blowing…
Although the website is being updated, I would go follow him on twitter/instagram @Houseofmeggs…your eyeballs will be pleased!
Once again I have failed in my mission to post a weekly blog because I feel like I’m constantly busy, ahh! Seriously, how do people prioritize? I think I have a lot to learn about this blogging business! Anyway, I’m a busy bee at the moment because after being made redundant in January I decided to start my own little business…and about 12 hours later I was offered another full time job, very nice indeed!
So by day I’m a “Visualisation Specialist”…and by night I’m BATMAN!…Or, “The Wedding Illustrator”.
Planning my own wedding got me thinking…I love weddings and digital illustration, so why not try and become something which combines the two? And “The Wedding Illustrator” was the result of that thought. Who knows, it might be a complete shambles but I’m having fun with it so who cares?
I suppose the benefit of creating digital art is that you don’t need to physically hand over anything in person, meaning you can provide a service to anyone who has internet access.There are a number of things which wedding illustrations could be used for so if it takes your interest why not have a look at http://www.theweddingillustrator.co.uk . I also created a facebook and twitter account if any other wedding businesses out there want to say hello!
Now, time for bed. Goodnight!
This is just a quick post because I’m really excited about finishing my first ever commissioned painting. This was an entirely new challenge to me as I’m used to drawing portraits or still lifes but I think it turned out not too shabby! It was my friend who asked me to do a painting of his favourite character Nocturne from the game League of Legends. As a gamer and artist I was stoked that he asked me to do it for him and wasn’t just looking for a freebie!
…Onto the next project!!!
