Since my flight tonight was cancelled, I had time to do my piece for this years Verry Merry Art Trade, a gouache painting of Kiki and Jiji from Kiki’s Delivery Service. I hope the person it’s going to likes it! (The piece of wood it’s taped to will be staying with me)

Some PowerPuff Girls stuff I was asked to do for a project! Photoshop on the left and acryla gouache on the right
At school we are all busy putting together our portfolios to apply for co op placements this summer and one of my teachers keeps talking about ‘making art you want to get hired to do’. Well I would love to be hired to illustrate a kids book one day and man would I ever love to work on a Tolkien adaptation!
Who knows if that will ever happen! So I decided to attempt it on my own and plan out a fake ‘golden book style’ Hobbit, inspired by the Unexpected Journey movie. These were all painted with acryla gouache on watercolour paper and the book cover was edited with some photoshop.
I have a few more illustrations for this ‘Little Tokien book’ project on the go but homework is piling up so it might be a few weeks before I can dedicate some time to get the rest done. I’m not really sure if this is anything I can use in my looming portfolio but it was so much fun to do! There is really something nice about taking a little break now and again to rejuvenate your creativity with a personal project!
