It's so good to be back doing Illustration Friday again! I have been off the radar a bit lately designing up a storm in my new job but I am ready to focus on my illustrative endeavors again and have plenty of new ideas to keep my paintbrush busy. I thought the above illustration was a great one to show for this weeks word 'Identical' as it is my first ever attempt at painting on plywood. I created this piece by scanning in my pencils, creating colour layers, then printing each layer and making stencils using contact paper and my trusty cutter. I painted each stencil layer with acrylic. I plan to keep perfecting this technique as I hope to put on a solo exhibition next year showcasing works on plywood. Hope you like it!

email promo

This is a new email promo I have created in order to send to art directors and publishers that accept email submissions. I will also attach a portfolio to these submissions but it gives the receiver a taste of what's to come, my contact details, and a lo-res image to send to others they think might be interested in my work. Let me know what you think!

Some 'puzzled' little penguins I painted last year using acrylic on board. I think they are just jealous of the end penguins natural charm and style!

I have been using this lovely long weekend to have a bit of fun and play around with my digital style (in between chocolate eating of course!), I thought this weeks illustration friday word 'vocal' was a good one to practice on. After many hours yesterday huffing and puffing in the face of photoshop I decided to try my luck in Corel Painter 11. I found the brushes a bit easier to use and I also liked the sponge and airbrushing options. Its pretty obvious I was inspired by Mary Blair for this one! My goal is to capture the freedom and playfulness of traditional mediums in a digital format. Let me know what you think. x

A quick little illustration I did for fun over the long weekend. I am trying to perfect my digital style and bring a more hand done feel to the work. Hope my little bunnies make you smile!

Here is my little offering for this weeks Illustration Friday word Swamp. I thought these two little creatures might be found hanging out quite happily in a nice wet swamp. I call this piece 'Wanna grab a bite?'. I love using cheeky animals in my work and I have used these two on some greeting cards too. I have also started my professional facebook page recently and If you have time I would love you to check it out and let me know what you think. Thanks! rebekahfoordillustrations
