My first picture done for Illustration Friday. This weeks topic is 'Soaked'. I hope to try and carry this on with the same character each week and incorporate her into an idea I have which I will be writing about shortly.

I had a brainwave this morning. I was clearing out some rubbish and noticed that I had kept loads of cardboard boxes. Then I thought about using them to draw on....then I remembered that they had different layers so I grabbed my scalpel and started cutting away. This picture was done just to see what it would look like... You can see that I haven't positioned it very well so that there wasn't enough room for the bottom right hand corner but I was still quite happy with how it turned out... I like the texture and the different shades of each layer. So now I'm going to do a real picture with all four corners....and it just occurred to me that I'm also being very environmentally friendly at the same time!!!!!!

I'm in Sardinia at the moment and so taking a few photos here and there. Iglesias is a town hit badly by the economic crisis and there are shops closed everywhere. Having said that I quite like it but can you believe I can't find anywhere here to buy a 4B pencil and other art supplies.... Next time I'll have to bring my own.
