Super sneaky preview of something in the pipeline. Still needs an unbelievable amount of work, but it’s coming along. 🐦 #heron #illustration #graphicdesign #art #digitalart #progress #wip #wacom

Still needs the band name and album title in the open spaces at the bottom, and I’m almost certain that I’ll still go back and make a few changes, but this is done for the moment. 📀 #illustration #graphicdesign #album #cover #art #artwork #digitalart #scarab #compass #moon #feathers #egypt

Some of tonight’s progress. Still a very long way to go with this graphic. #illustration #progress #graphicdesign #album #artwork

Preliminary linework, done. A mixture of vector and digital drawing for this one. Next up is shading and then colour. Since I’m not on top of my Inktober game anymore I figured I’d keep everyone up to date with how this is progressing. 🐞 #illustration #digitalart #lineart #graphicdesign #album #artwork #art #artnerd #drawing #sketch #scarab #egypt #compass #feather #moon

So, I haven’t posted any Inktober drawings since Friday, but I’ve been a bit caught up with other things. I’ll still try and do a few, but now that my little break is over, it’s back to the grind and time is valuable. I’d like for my drawings to look considered instead if rushed - there’s nothing that takes the fun out of drawing as much as forcing it. In the meantime, Here’s a little sneaky crop of something I whipped up over the weekend. Hopefully I can show the full thing soon. 💿 #illustration #graphicdesign #art #artnerd #artwork #digitalart #vinyl #record

"Coffee solves everything". Story of my life. Inktober #9. ☕️ #inktober #pigmainktober #kuretakeinktober #illustration #drawing #sketch #sketchbook #ink #art #artnerd #graphicdesign #coffee#character

Had a super long day, but I managed to squeeze in Inktober #8 jut in time. “Vices Like Vipers”, a timelessly awesome track by Oh, Sleeper (if you’re into heavy music, that is). 🐍 #inktober #pigmainktober #kuretakeinktober #illustration #art #artnerd #graphicdesign #snake #viper #ink #lettering #type #typography #handlettering

Catching up on the day I missed. Inktober #7! “SkateCat” #inktober #pigmainktober #kuretakeinktober #illustration #drawing #sketch #sketchbook #ink #pen #art #artnerd #graphicdesign #cat #skating #skateboard

Inktober #6! 💀 #inktober #pigmainktoner #kuretakeinktober #illustration #sketch #drawing #sketchbook #art #artnerd #graphicdesign #ink #skull #suit

Not sure if this is against the rules, but I did my 5th Inktober drawing digitally, mainly because I felt like my Instagram feed was becoming monochromatic. Any complaints? Felt like skating today, didn’t work out, so I ended up drawing this instead. 

Inktober #4 - decided to do a little bit more with my previous ninja doodle. ✏️✒️ #inktober #illustration #ink #sketch #drawing #sketchbook #art #ninja #graphicdesign
