Diving With Octopus

Ella book is finished – 22 pages! The longest book I’ve illustrated so far. Another book is on horizon and there are two children poems to illustrate, for Mira. One picture per poem – when compared to Ella project, this should be simple. But first I have joined a fan art contest on DA and this is the result. The lady’s name is Victoria, the octopus name is Otto and they are Brian Kesinger’s characters. I saw them doing lots of things together but I’ve never seen a picture of Otto taking Victoria down to his home.

Birdhouse

Hundred Acre Wood, black ink and crayons. Something simple for a hot day. I’m going to return to dragon and witch, when it’s colder. Last three Ella pages must be done first, too. Birdhouse

Mock Turtle

He might be Mock Turtle, I have discovered it after I had finished. A very small drawing, 5 inch high. Fineliner, crayons and water.Mock Turtle

Nysa

An exercise in landscape painting; I have chosen a photograph made in autumn to cool down a bit, now it’s pretty hot here! The river is Nysa, I happened to be born quite close to it, but not exactly in this area.

Dragon Pet

Herbs are all over, time to draw something stupid again. Like a dragon in the boat. Who might want to keep a tamed dragon? Probably some wizard or a witch, they like strange animals. Where does this witch go and why by boat?  I don’t know yet, but when I have an idea, I will do another drawing. I feel this dragon pet theme will be continued. This is just first sketch.

Three More Herbs

This is what I’m doing latelyrumianek z_nagietekc Herbs

Oenothera

A few more herbs this week. I know this plant very well, it grows here. I didn’t know its English name before. I have just checked, and common names are: evening primrose, suncups or sundrops. How romantic! Our mares would name it “this uneatable yellow thing we hate”.

Elephantomouses

Sunday evening crayon drawing. This is a mum in the nest, with kids around.  I think they are mouse-sized or a little bigger.
