Working on my children’s book style.
Trying out a digital colouring technique inspired by my dear friend Lena, whose work you should go ogle right now.
(She also happens to be a redhead, but this isn’t a portrait of her.)
From the inside of the card I made for my dad. In so many ways, I wouldn’t be where I am today without him. Here’s to supportive dads :)
Digitally inking them curls.

A little painting I did yesterday of a flower from a samaan (sp?) tree, which are now in full bloom all over Trinidad.
Acrylic and watercolour.
Sketching, trying to push past an art block.
On the off chance that you noticed my absence, I’m back from a 2 week trip/tumblr hiatus that was quite refreshing and full of wonderful experiences. I carried my sketchbook but was absolutely awful at actually using it… I blame the fact that I brought along a book to read. Speaking of, I’m going to go read some more before I go to bed and get back to working on art tomorrow. Yay vacation!
Once I get the photos off my camera, I might do some sketches based on those. Not sure when, since my bf accidentally took it with him.
The Great Flood, by Sayada Ramdial
Portia(’s dad) took a picture of my drawing at the ASTT exhibition!
If you want to see it in person, the show’s up til the 25th at the Art Society.
Tomorrow marks the opening of the first gallery show I’ve participated in in Trinidad. It’s a group show put on by the Art Society of Trinidad & Tobago, the theme of which is ‘Belle Eau’ or Beautiful Water.
If you live in Trinidad and would like to see lots of beautiful, watery art, please come check it out! It runs from tomorrow, the 16th until the 25th. If you’re a stalker, i totally won’t be there on opening night OR *Saturday evening so don’t even come then. Okay?
If you’re not a stalker, come say hi tomorrow night!
To the under-represented dark-skinned ladies, particularly of East Indian descent: Remind them how fabulous you are.
To quote Sting, that’s not the shape of my heart. I’m shorter than that, too.
I don’t usually talk about my personal life on tumblr, but since it pertains to the illustration:
It’s been about 6 months since I last saw my boyfriend (not including online) and I miss being able to hug him. Lack of hugs is the worst part of this long distance relationship. But the good news is that in a little over a week we’ll be seeing each other! I’m so excited!
My attempt at Jeff Winger, started while watching the season finale.
Colour pencil- I’m only using blue-violet, violet and red for this part.
