Earrings Commission

I've been asked by a friend of mine if I'd be interested in a commission to draw and paint some designs for a range of earrings based on various animals. The following are 4 watercolours I have done thus far; Reindeer, the Gouldian Finch, Rabbit and the Splendid Fairy Wren or as it's more commonly known the Blue Wren (an indigenous bird to Western Australia).
Note; since these were to be made into earrings (don't ask me how!) the overall silhouette had to be simplified- no legs on the birds!

Happy New Year and Welcome!

So as the first day of 2010 begins and I reach the half point of my thirtieth year, I begin my foray into the blog-o-sphere with some drawings, paintings and eventually some writing.

The first drawing is one of several I did of the characters Edward Cullen and Bella from the Twilight movies that I did for my niece as a Christmas present.
Blue pencil on layout paper.

The second image is of myself (believe it or not), well at least it's based on a photo of myself. The image is basically my interpretation of a mermaid that I did for a class assignment.

This was a fun piece to do, a painting of a bird that has a house for a head!

And now for something different, a concept piece I did for my Illustration class of a creature with the combined traits of a horse, a lion and a goat.
