The Red Wheelbarrow

Wax Pastels on paper

I did this for Illustration Friday's "poem" theme. I always liked The Red Wheelbarrow by William Carlos Williams (1923). We studied it at school and it was the only one I could ever remember.

Hair Towel

Pen and ink (coloured in photoshop)

Coffee Anatomy

Pen and ink
Another coffee inspired drawing. This was done before I began colouring in photoshop.

Coffee Spill

Pen and ink sketch coloured in photoshop
This was one of my first attempts at using photoshop to colour a sketch. In the end all I did was add the white of the cup and the nails.

I was trying to create something that had a print-like quality about it. I think this comes close.
