The Lonesome Boatman

This is a drawing inspired by The Fureys song "The Lonesome Boatman," in which I focused on mood. Below is my thumbnail to work out composition & a reference photo I shot of my Dad for the figure, the background was invented based on general research rather than any direct reference. I did the illustration for the monthly challenge on the Visual Literacy Program site that I'm thrilled to be a part of - it's a great interactive online resource put together by the Illustration Academy and is helping to keep me in touch & inspired from the other side of the world!

Also if you are anywhere near Virginia make sure to check out Sterling Hundley's solo show opening this week. I've had the pleasure of learning from Sterling & have been watching the exhibition progress on the blog Sterling Clinton Hundley. I know the show will be amazing, I wish I could come back to America & see it in person!

Here are a couple more pages for my Bowerbird story, which is progressing slowly but surely! I hope everyone is doing well :) I'm finally settled back into life in Australia & enjoying the chance to work on personal projects outside of my day job at the art supply store, I'll post more soon!
