This ‘F is for’ illustration was originally created as a background for an Aesops fable. ‘The Jay & the Peacock.’ Originally created to have lots of birds in the foreground, I quite like it on its own. This style is definitely a favourite of mine at the moment and I’m hoping to experiment with it further.
E is for Elephant. This multiple Elephant doodle was created on my new ipad app ‘Adobe Ideas’ a belated birthday present to myself. I was so excited to be able to doodle on my ipad and the great thing is you can then open & adjust it in Illustrator CS6.
I am quite pleased with how it came out and will continue to experimenting with my ipad doodles.
D is for Diamond, perhaps I was inspired by the constant humming (or should that be screaming?) of Rhianna’s ‘shine bright like a diamond’ by students along the corridors of the school I work in or maybe Marilyn was right & diamonds are a girls’ best friend? But I couldn’t resist using it as my first ‘D is for’ inspiration. I love this doodle so much it has duplicated into a number of fun and fabulous diamond patterns. (I still can’t resist a good repeat pattern!)
So instead of starting at A like a sensible person I have decided to start my doodling blog at C! I’m not entirely sure why, but starting at the beginning never comes naturally to me, (I can never start drawing on the first page of a sketchbook either!). I have also been spending a lot of time doodling clouds recently, so here is my C is for cloud.
Created using a dip pen & ink and digitally coloured to create a sunset effect.
Welcome to S is for Scribble! a new blog dedicated to my doodling, scribbling and illustration. A place to play and experiment and perhaps discover a few new tricks along the way. I hope you enjoy having a look around.
