I started this wee piece on Sat nite(16th August) to commemorate the legendary Bela Lugosi’, and didn’t know it’d take so long to finish. At one point I got depressed because it didn’t progress fast enough, and I was completely lost in it. It would have taken a lot less time if I painted with acrylic paints instead, but was a good experience, I now know what was slowin’ me down. Digital illustration is not easy. I still have lots to learn.

These are designs I did as a draft for a shop a while ago. The client did not give me a brief, and seems like he is not going to use these. Thought I’d post them here instead of having them in a folder collecting dusts.

Inspired by the Super Moon I saw last nite. We had clouds all over the sky, but the moon was bright enough to beam through some of them, made a bizarre scene where it made a very faint moon ray.

Tumblr won’t accept my .gif animation file for some reasons, and I’ve tried hosting the image in a post which didn’t work either. (the image works fine when uploaded on Tinypic) So I’ll leave a link instead: http://tinyurl.com/thecelticgoat

Well it’s been quite busy lately and I, as usual, forgot about the blog here. The first term of third year has come to an end, and we’re on hols, but are we really. There are a lot to do and typically I’ve been very slow on both the dissertation and course project. But hey, it’s still holidays. At least I don’t get to worry about havin’ to show my werk - which has been, mostly, fuck all - to tutors every week for a month. Freedom.!

Will be back on bloggin’ soon. A lot of WIP’s at the moment, hopefully they’ll all get done so I can upload new werk here. There’s also a - yet another - new blog I set up for the rant/rambling/thoughts, short or lengthy, I usually share on Facebook. Am still postin’ them on FB, but it’s rather hectic to find them to re-read later on since those roamin’ words quickly disappear into the woods of the mountains of photos and YouTube links. So here’s the link, if anybody reads anything on there, I do hope you enjoy. : http://thefloatinwords.tumblr.com/
