|Before (space and some space dust)|
|Middle (space and some dust and gas)|
|End (ish) dust and gas swirling around creating the protostar.|
This weeks assignment was to illustrate before, middle and end. I ummmed and eerrred about what almost all week then on Sunday, whilst watching Brian Cox wax lyrical about the solar system I thought I'd do the birth of star. I feel like I cheated a bit as I did the whole thing digitally and didn't touch my sketchbook BUT this assignment feeds into our final piece and I have an idea forming around the Aurora Borealis so I figure brushing up my Photoshop, magical sky skills, won't go a miss.

This weeks coursework piece was to illustrate the poem If by Rudyard Kipling. I'm kind of surprised my illustration ended up looking like this. I have mixed feelings about the advice the poem itself has to offer but its certainly fruitful territory in terms of vivid language for illustration.

|"The pursuit of an idea is exciting as the pursuit of a Whale"|
I started an illustration evening course this September. Each week we're given assignments, which is great as it forces me to try new things. Last week we were each given a quote to illustrate. This one isn't my final piece so its a bit unfinished but its the one that came up trumps with my friends.

Some sketches for the, proverbial, father in law's big birthday bash this weekend. We've rented a house in London town and plan to spend a long weekend eating good food, drinking good beer (or in this case whiskey!) and generally having a lovely time. Yes the whiskey does look a bit like wee, might have to play with the colours a bit!
