This is a drawing I did in brush texta, metallic pen and colour pencil. I always like to mix my media.

The second one is the same drawing through a Photoshop filter (I think it was "Film Grain"). My husband liked the "burnt" quality of it.

I have the perfect piece for this topic. It's a piece I did for my art exam at high school...oooh, more years ago than I care to remember - but the subject is King Tutankhamun's funerary mask and tomb items. Because I am a nerd, I had drew items which were actually found in the tomb with King Tut.

Unfortunately, I framed the piece a few years ago, so I got my husband to take a photo of it in its frame. He had to slope the picture backwards so as not to appear in the reflection. So it doesn't quite do justice to the piece. It was done in oil pastel.

Illustration Friday - Might

My cousin had a project in which he had to write propaganda for Macbeth. We were trying to think of a good image to represent Macbeth's reign, and the gauntleted fist is what we came up with. For some reason, that's what came into my head when I saw this week's topic.

I don't know what exactly this next cartoon is about. That's the other image that came into my head. The soldier is so focussed on his mission that he doesn't see the flower in front of him.
