Some old work - not quite children's illustration! And a grumpy Orc shoot...
While digging out some old celtica pieces to add to my new pages I discovered some long forgotten old folders full of reams and reams of old illustrations from about twelve or so years back.
Of course I didn't think of them as illustrations then, I was just messing around for the fun of it with odd bits of stories and characters - the compositions and the life drawing are all a bit dodgy the say the least! Here are a few from right at the beginning of it, long before I ever thought about children's illustration as you can probebly see from the subject matter!
These were quite small - 6"x4"
On another note, my Robin Hood obcessed six year old did a spot of grumpy Orc shooting this evening...
She got him right between the eyes!
And evidently thought that was very funny!
