This blog has been sadly neglected for a long while due to injury and illness. My creative attention and focus was shifted into illustration and writing because they were something I was physically able to do. I am still unable … Continue reading
I’ve been slow at producing paintings in the past months. Trying hard to spend more time with them, study more, focus harder. I’ve also been taking a look back at my older works for inspiration, trying to find something new … Continue reading
Lately on my @whimsicalillustration Instagram account I’ve been doing small illustrated series’. Recently I just completed this fun sketchy series of characters inspired by The Princess Bride film. A classic film by the way, which if you’ve never seen then you must! I thought it would be fun to share that series here as well. I hope you enjoy!!!
This is the first painting I’ve completed in a while, all due to many different circumstances. I am excited and nervous to share this piece with you because of it’s meaning… Recently we lost an old friend in a tragic accident, this painting was inspired out of grief but in the end not grief alone… Like myself, my friend was a believer and his death brought about a greater understanding of my faith. I started this painting in sadness and have ended it in celebration, it represents the reality of our souls in Christ. The old broken by death and the new come. We are more than just a body – so much more. Additional meaning was emphasized as I finished working on this piece last week because one of my young cousins was also tragically lost to my family. So much tragedy and yet hope, so much death and yet life.
Whether you share my faith or not I hope you find the celebration and the hope in this piece enjoyable. 🙂
I’ve been working through this illustration series on my Instagram account (@whimsicalillustration ) and thought it might be super fun to share it with you here. I’ve not yet finished the series (more to come so be sure to follow on Instagram) but I’ve been doing portraits of famous historical women in a manga illustrated style. I’ve shared all the the illustration on my Whimsical Publishing Blog so be sure to head out there to see more!
Morning friends! Another little light study illustration for ya. This was a bit of a departure for me since it’s an indoor scene. Well kind of an indoor/outdoor scene – I really wanted to try raindrop on a window.
Hope you all have a lovely day even though it’s Monday!
