About two years ago I was hired by a local small press (who shall remain unnamed, and likely you haven’t heard of them) to create some illustrations for a website they intended to design. Long story short, the client disappeared without a trace before the project was ever finished, I only got 1/4 of the payment, and the art that was completed never got used for anything. And I figure after two years it’s never going to be used for anything. I had practically forgotten it existed. Which is sad, because I think I did a pretty nice job on these!
The theme was a Cabinet of Curiosities with a gritty, steampunk look. Here are the two pieces that were finished (the press’ name has been removed from the banner)
I do want to come up with something to do with these, because I really like them, especially the vertical one with the pipes and spider-y thing.
I also had some free time a few nights ago and I spent it sketching in my neglected Moleskine. I’ve been wanting to draw a pic of Ellie Goulding for a while. She’s also good practice for faces, because her features are so distinctive. I’m not very good at likenesses; it’s something I want to work on.
