I thought I’d include some portfolio pieces I did last year. These were based on the characters from the three little pigs and feature the big bad wolf in my header. The first illustration is obviously the first little piggie, building his house from straw.
The second illustration shows the pig having a little doze..
And builder pig, the smartest of them all. All the illustrations were made using collaged printed paper, ink, watercolour and pencil. The biggest challenge was working out what to paint first and what to print first, particularly because the stamp pad I was using would rewet when I painted next to it. The scaffolding was made as a stencil and using stamp pads, I enjoyed the slight unpredictableness of this method, almost using it like a monoprint. The lettering was done using little alphabet stamps.
