Latest piece for the Epoch Times UK print edition, published 30/03/10.
A Reading of 'When I Heard the Learn'd Astronomer' by Walt Whitman
"When I heard the learn'd astronomer;
When the proofs, the figures, were ranged in columns before me;
When I was shown the charts and the diagrams, to add, divide, and measure them...."
This piece came out looking slightly cartoony, which I was a bit uncomfortable with at first. I decided not to change it though, it just seems to work fine overall :)
In hope of making the computer work part of my Illustrating more efficient I purchased myself a Wacom graphics Tablet this week!
After a slow start it's proving to be a worthwhile buy. Because it's a new tool to get used to and is rather unfamiliar I'm finding myself concentrating a lot more, which I like.
I really shouldn't leave it until 1am to create a blog post, it took me ages to sting all these words together!
P.S. - This flick is soo good, you should SQUIRREL!!....... you should watch it.
