On the opposite wall to the Sleeping Cat (see previous post), I had to draw the same cat well awake.

Sleeping Cat

 

Relaxing looking sleeping cat. Tempera wall painting. My work (unrelated to illustration or arts) involves lots of waiting theses days. Nothing better to pass time than drawing on the walls! It also brightens the room and makes it more welcoming.

 

Three Guinea Pigs

The pigs, in the original drawing, are about two inches wide, made of ink on paper, digitalized, vectorized, coloured and enlarged.

4 Decker Bus

4 decker bus colour 2

My son is mad about buses. Especially double decker buses. The higher the better. So I draw for him a four decker bus, with a small house top. He likes it so much, he now wants to get on a real bus like this and climb at the very top.

 

For this one, I used my usual style: black ink on paper digitized and adding the colour using my trusted illustration software Inkscape. Only, when the product was finished, I accidently removed the top layer containing the original ink drawing. I really like this paper cut-out look. Even the little white gaps here and there between two colours gives it a certain charm. The reflections on the windows are from real life original photograph of skies.

 

Bi-plane in the sky

Made for a personalized birthday card. As for the previous rabbits, I chose to use a more realistic style. The use of a photograph for the sky background was, at first, a time-saving exercise, but I found out it does work rather well. The recipient of the card, a young plane enthusiast (4 year old), was very happy about it.
