This is because working a real job leaves me no energy for drawing. Waaah. I do, however write and (sometimes) illustrate a blog over here. I have a couple of ongoing projects when it comes to art though, so I thought I'd update you on them :)
Project one is a "peek-a-boo" board for the pub I work at. It's very touristy with lots of history, so I'm mashing the history up and using Susan the horse from Doctor Who to explain why Vikings and Roundheads are hanging out at a ruined castle.
As you can see I have to paint. Which is confusing and not drawing. Paint drips, and needs mixing, and needs to dry. It's all very strange. Luckily I have had some help on it so far. It's pretty fun, but so exhausting I struggled to breather the other day. Chronic illness is stupid.
Project deux is a poster for Wimbledon Zine Fair this November 14th. This is so refreshing as it's familiar ground and true source of sanctuary when painting is confusing my head. I shall be exhibiting there with The Jellygoose Chronicles, my Bulimia zine and maybe even my Doctor Who Christmas cards. Jellygoose 2 might even be there if I find the time and energy to finish it! This pre-lisahavingthedamnenergytofinishherposter poster has the details about it :)
I shall endeavor to update this blog at least once a month for the foreseeable future. While i don't get much actual illustration done these days, I do draw things at work here and there. Most of these are on my instagram if you're interested.
Hope you're all doing well. Come hang in Wimbledon! :D
Seeing as I was too tired to think of doing anything but draw exactly what was in front of me last week and it has been brought up a couple of times, have a much more clever version of my #jesuischarlie piece with relevant nail polish!
