I just got notification that Lorraine is following my blog. Hello Lorraine! Here is a whimsical cat I drew for you xxxxx
INPRNT often showcases awesome artists I had never heard of before..
I’m particularly taken by Bassam Alemam‘s pictures; he combines wit and intelligence with a gorgeous, easy, graceful style. Hilariously whimsical pictures sit uneasily side by side with disturbing, political images of war and oppression.
Quick sketch with a pilot fineliner pen, coloured in with three shades of blue alcohol pen (like copic markers, but a cheaper brand).
The pilot pen ink isn’t completely fast, but it’s not too bad.
I’ve yet to find a disposable gel/ink pen that doesn’t bleed a little when you colour over it, if anyone knows of one let me know!
I was playing about with my daughter’s keyboard and came up with this, I thought it was pretty. Could be the start of something or the backing for a song..
(Lillith makes me call everything “Tiddles’ song”, Tiddles is probably the most sung-about cat in Luton)
