Shark banner – really wish I had made the banner a gas cannister!
Narwhal banner – the fabric banner works better here.
Nowadays whenever I draw or paint anything I feel like I’ve made a massive accomplishment, even if it’s a silly drawing like the ones above. The will to draw strikes me often but I never have the crucial spark of inspiration. I love having the pencil in my hand, but no lines will flow. It’s a bit frustrating, you can imagine.
I wanted to make myself a banner for this here blog and on Twitter, so the shark is a starting point. I love sharks but it’s not exactly relevant to anything I write about. Also, I didn’t take into account the dimensions – oops. But I enjoyed painting it, and I think it looks OK. David asked me to do a narwhal for him so I duly obliged.
Send me some inspiration, tell me an animal to paint. They don’t have to be water-dwelling, though they’re my faves!
