Hang the expenses

My latest illustration done for the Times Higher Education, while having a stinking cold by the way. That's right, I work through illness like a real illustrator. Grr!

Illustration Friday - Stretch

Not the most inventive response to the topic I admit but I wanted to have a go at drawing some facial expressions and expressive body postures. I think I've nailed a big yawn!

Those of you coming directly from Illustration Friday will notice that the colours have changed and that there's an amendment to the nostril. There's a lesson to be learnt here. Never rush uploading otherwise you'll miss mistakes (like the nostril) and you'll suddenly decide it needs a colour change. Thus endeth the lesson!

If you are not aware of Ninjamountain then do yourself a favour and follow the link provided. It's a really great podcast about the sci-fi, fantasy art business. I'm not a fantasy artist but the business and the manner of which illustrators promote themselves is fairly universal. It's well worth a listen.
