illustration

Check it out, only 2 months since my last post. I thought I'd just stop by because I remembered saying I'd post some more pictures and I just did a new flyer for the star. Rob's got an offer on for the new students and as it involved corona and tequila it seemed like a no brainer that the flyer should be Mexican themed. I was just going to do a picture of a guy with a sombrero and a big moustache but after doing an image search I thought a Mexican wrestler would be cooler.

Not bad for one evening, I usually like to spend a little longer on the flyers I do but this one was needed quickly. The most time consuming part was colouring it in photoshop. I don't use it very often, and when I do I find that I've forgotten everything I figured out the last time. I've also started working on the new star halloween flyer as well and I'll post that up when it's done.

In other news I've signed up for an illustration night class that will be starting soon, I did the same course a couple of years ago and I really enjoyed it. It's being taught by a local, children's book illustrator called Korky Paul who's artwork advertising last Christmas's production of Cinderella at the Playhouse can still be seen on many bus shelters around Oxford. (Bus shelters! Surely I could have come up with a better example) Anyway, he's an amazing artist and a thoroughly nice guy to boot so I'm really looking forward to it. I'll let you know how it goes.
