first life drawing session in Dublin - Sol Art Gallery

So I am waiting to start working at Boulder Media soon and until then I'm trying not to get extremely lazy! Life drawing seemed like a good idea, especially since I haven't done any proper life drawing for about a year now. I must admit that I almost cried during the first couple of poses,  after I noticed how 'rusty' I'd become. It was a good awakening and made me realise I should not take fundamental drawing practise for I've registered on this group of adults that get together every Tuesday at Sol Art Gallery to practise their life drawing and I'll be attending every week! the model was great -with a mixture of short and long poses- and the environment quite friendly so if you happen to be in Dublin and care for a good life drawing session you should come :)

My Knights in Armours

this is some more development work I did for that book Illustration job some time ago. these designs were followed by a few more until we ended up with our final main knight character that I cannot share online yet. Looking back, I am not super happy with these...not that I hate them, I just see so many other choices I could have made instead. still they were fun to draw and I've definitely learned from it. stay tuned for the next post :)

sketches for the children's book I've  recently finished illustrating. The text comes from a talented Greek writer and I'm glad I was a part of the project. These did not exactly make it to the finals so I thought it would be ok to post. 

Other than that, I'm relocating to Dublin, Ireland in a couple of days for various reasons including work. Exciting times ahead - as I've never been there and know almost nothing about the country other than the fact that it rains a looot, the Irish like their beer, everyone is very friendly and the countryside is full of sheep! :D
