Well it’s one week into 2012 and so far my resolutions/goals are going strong! At first I was a bit daunted as to where to begin all of these ideas, projects, hobbies… So after talking to a friend of mine we decided that first I should finish all the unfinished projects of 2011! Finish the old to start the new.
So this weekend has all been about getting through my part of a collaboration with Rosanna Geissler, we’d agreed on a theme and what we were going to do months ago but both leading busy lives the project I must admit just stopped. So I had 6 illustrations I wanted to create to send off to Rosanna to do her thing. This weekend I managed to complete 4 / 6! Which I am pretty impressed with as I’m a slow worker. Here’s a look at what I’ve done so far…
If I’m completely honest, I love the outcome (and if you know me at all, you will know I don’t usually like my work). It’s been really fun to do something a bit different. I have always admired fashion illustration and I think this is a step in the right direction. Just another 2 more to go and my half of the collaboration is complete. I’m looking forward to seeing the final piece!
P.s. On another note.. I have taken the first step on another of my New Years Resolutions – and I have bought a quilting magazine! I know you could learn off the internet for free but maybe if I pay for the magazine it will be more incentive for me to do it, so I haven’t wasted my money. It’s one of those ‘Make a Piece ever week’ kind of magazines, so I will let you know how that turns out!
