Illustration Friday (er... Wednesday) Topic: "SNOW"

Okay, so, admittedly it's a little late in the day but I couldn't let the current Illustration Friday topic slip through the net. It's just so cold and wintery and Christmassy around here, how could I not be inspired by the prompt, 'SNOW'.

Posts have been a bit thin on the ground this week due to manic schedules but fear not people, the new year brings a whole lot of excitement ;)

It was fantastic to see Chris Martin performing at the 12-12-12 fundraising concert, for victims of Hurricane Sandy, alongside an all-star line up at Madison Square Garden, New York.

As an avid fan I'm thrilled to learn that, here in the UK, BBC1 will be screening an hour of Coldplay's new live 2012 concert film at 10:55 pm on 27 December... "GET-IN!!!!"
Unfortunately for you though D, you'll have to cop the DVD/Blu-ray from your local reatailer... but fret not, at least that way you'll get to see the whole thing (and all the extras)! ;)

Coldplay, we salute you!

Things To Come

Well the pressure's certainly been mounting this week (to say the least), what with D's thesis jury and my studio design crit, but would we have it any other way... I think not!

One thing I will say though, is that we're both chomping at the bit and cannot wait to stow away our technical thinking caps and get down to some serious illo work. There's some exciting work in the pipelines, not to mention networking events and competitions we're entering. 
2013's certainly looking bright, so in celebration of that we're injecting a little splash of colour into our latest work ;)

It can be absolutely exhausting having so many strings to your bow lol. I mean, to have to keep changing gears (so to speak) and adjusting your mind set can leave one in a bit of a tailspin. But 'hey-ho', who wants a mundane life?!

psssst... One more thing, I was thrilled to see the work of my idols, Good Wives and Warriors in today's Metro Newspaper. I was grinning like a school kid at this awesome illo of theirs, despite seeing it numerous times before now lol. "You rock girls!!!"

Good day to you all! 

I just wanted to share this little image of mine as I've had great fun experimenting with different types of media and styles. 
Of course, black pen is still my tool of choice however, I'm quite liking a bit of watercolour too. I'm also loving the fact that the 'Athlay Anderson' charisma is still evident regardless of the media type ;) 

I know it's Monday (ugh!) but hopefully, this little pic should brighten your day!
