Subterranean

18 Mar

For Illustration Friday‘s theme ‘Subterranean’. My first attempt at digital vector illustration. There is much to learn!

I scanned in a quick sketch I’d made using a marker, vectorised it on Illustrator, then added the ‘subterranean’ parts of the picture using the brush tool, and coloured it in.

I like this word subterranean :).

Wedding Invite, and IF: ‘Celebrate’

20 Feb

A wedding invitation card I designed, illustrated and wrote out for my cousin who just got married. We had it  screen-printed on handmade paper. The text is Gujarati. The top image shows a motif depicting the elephant-god Ganesha whose blessings are generally sought by Hindus when they begin anything new. This section is folded over the illustration of the birds in the bottom image, which is how the card looks opened out.

I had been meaning to post this for a few days and just today suddenly thought it would be perfect for the IF theme “Celebrate” — but unfortunately I was a bit too late to submit it on IF. Oh, well.

‘Wise’- Illustration Friday

11 Nov

'Wise'

Pen & Ink, approx 10 x 14 cm

This is a drawing I did about a year and a half ago. The ‘Wise’ theme, for me, seemed to call for an image of something non-human if it had to be illustrated figuratively, so I looked through my animal sketches, and found this :).
