Little Brother in the Sky Cover

The cover. Sort of. Not entirely suited to be the cover, since I didn't take the backside and lettering into account, but whatever.

Mixed media: acrylics, collage, charcoal, soft pastels

Op de Hemelweg / On Heaven's Road

A second illustration for my story - de Hemelweg or Heaven's Road. This one, and Sarah, both are elaborate sketches for a bigger illustration for chapter one of my story. One more of these sketches and then I'll work on the bigger one.

Mixed media: collage, acrylics, charcoal, soft pastel

Edit: Finished the last one as well! Meet Uk (Little One). He keeps teasing his sister, even from Heaven. Not with crayons and paint on new dresses, but through the weather.

So now I'm ready (I hope) to work on the big illustration for this story. Yay!

Again, mixed media: acrylics, collage, soft pastel, charcoal

Wow! I think I'm ill... I started experimenting with collage! Oh My Gosh!

Turned out pretty cool too. Did this after leafing through Layered Impressions: A Poetic Approach to Mixed-Media Painting by Katie Kendrick. Gosh, I love my library full of inspiration...

Also, meet Sarah, a character from a story I'm currently working on.

Mixed media: collage, acrylics, pencil, tiny bit of ink

Solution to the energy issue

As an assignment for the illustration course I'm taking, we had to combine a small problem (at home or work) with a huge problem (global). So I took my aversion to grading tests and combined it with the energy issue.

Ink, colored pen
