umbrella series




Heres some new work. I've decided to do a series of paintings involving fantasy settings and umbrellas. I see a lot of illustrators doing pin up style work of women in sexy poses. So I guess in a nutshell this is my response. It's a shame the scan of these pieces aren't of quality but it's the best I can do for now. Honestly the fun part of this series besides the shapes are the liberties, the freedom that fantasy illustration can offer. The liberties of distorting the real, such as proportions of the body. Longer necks, legs and faces! Fun stuff. Hopefully you enjoy, I have a lot of work to add but decided to take my time posting.

These are amazing! I love them all. I love the gestural line and the colours are perfect. The texture of the paper really adds to the bottom one. I should research this myself, but do you have any books out? Comics or other wise?
