IF - Mysterious

Late entry for (last weeks) Illustration Friday. The word given was 'mysterious'. I've wanted to draw a smoke obscured face for a while now and as I developed this idea it grew into a full on film noir scene image.

I've recently been struggling with what to draw next. Usually having none or too many ideas at once. I think I'll stick to I.F. for a while as it's really draws on ones inventiveness and problem solving skills.

If you have no work on it also works very similarly to a little commission as you're given a brief (a very brief one at that) and have a deadline of the coming friday. It's good.

Many roughs.

Since watching Richard Ayoade's film Submarine, I've had a little obsession with the lead female characters hairstyle. I finally got to put it to use in this piece.


Want to see next - The Troll Hunter

Clutter City Market 'Autumnal Affair'.
Tomorrow at the Norwich Arts Centre 10-4pm.

I'll be there all day with Buffalo Run T-Shirts, Illustration Prints and 'Wolves in Cars zines' FOR SALE!

I may even be offering a Portrait-to-go service, if I can get organised enough.

Come along, say Hi and spend some of your hard earned.
