Collaboration – Round 1- My Turn!

A while back I posted about a collaboration I was a part of with Anastasia Drawing & Dreaming and Sally from Jambo Chameleon. It’s been a little bit quiet due to moving house and other life-type things getting in the way, but now I’m very happy to say it’s my turn.

A recap of Round 1.
Sally gave us this photo collection in orange, blue and black.

So bright, punchy and graphic.

Then Anastasia responded with this lovely collage. (I’m thinking about doing a collage for one of my future turns…)

I love how the elements in this play off each other.

For my turn I’ve taken Sally’s idea of a collection and the colours area little closer to AC’s, but it’s very different nonetheless.

I have a lot of little sketches and scribbles that I do to get ideas down quickly that get re-created in Illustrator, or as warm up sketches, or as something to entertain the kidlings. These sketches don’t go anywhere or do anything in and of themselves. They are not the kind of sketches I usually share because they’re so rough. What I normally do with Paper Ivy is more polished. It’s a little sad really, because I actually love their naivety! So now at least some of these small, vulnerable looking little sketches can have the limelight for a while. I’m calling this illustration “The Lost Sketches”. I hope you have a certain fondness for it too.
