This is an illustration I completed for a unicorn related call out. Unicorns, fairytale and all things cuddly aren’t usually what I would choose to draw so I quickly slapped together this, subverting it mildly for my own selfish ends. . In the end I didn’t actually submit it, but it gave me the opportunity to experiment a little with pen and ink. More to come hopefully!
Here’s a selection of sketches I completed as reportage in open markets in Cork on my visit home. I got some strange looks setting up with my sketch pad and camera! Not my usual cup of tea (lacking sci-fi and the like), but it was a good exercise.
The pen and ink didn’t allow me to be too precious about the drawings. I like sketching people, but I’m not always a massive fan of backgrounds. Having said that you can’t always just dispense with the setting. See what you think anyway.
