I scanned some ink and paper textures and added vector masks in Photoshop. This is a warm-up piece for what I plan to do during the upcoming Thirty Days Project in November.

I’m really enjoying these combinations of watercolour textures with the digital tablet sketches. They really introduce an illustrative quality which makes me think about how these could be adapted.

These guys ended up with glummer expressions than they really had. I added a watercolour texture as an experiment in combining digital lines with traditional elements. The texture comes from inkandtexture.com, a site I run that supplies free inks and textures for digital artists.

The corner seat that was available today was a little cramped, but it offered the best view of the café. These two were deep in conversation and obligingly sat very still. Their patterned shirts just begged to be drawn in.

We’re more of the blood, love and rhetoric school. Well, we can do you blood and love without the rhetoric, and we can do you blood and rhetoric without the love, and we can do you all three concurrent or consecutive, but we can’t do you love an rhetoric without the blood. Blood is compulsory. They’re all blood, you see.
