Time Collage

The Sketchbook Challenge this month is ‘sketching with collage’ and the Illustration Friday challenge is ‘time’ so I have combined both for this one.


I used gesso on the page first, and used an old calendar and diary page for the collaged bits. I drew on watch hands and numbers and finished off with smudged time related quotes in pen.

I also did a digital collage for time


Dino Claus and another Snowman

sb36p103It’s been a while since I did anything in an actual sketchbook but today I have a collage. The dinosaur is actually a piece of wrapping paper and the brown thing I drew is supposed to be a sack [! – looks like a dog bowl]. Unlike digital I can’t easily erase pen. Also another snowman drawn on the tablet [Galaxy note]. I seem to be drawing lots of snowmen recently and we haven’t even got snow at the moment, we do have lots of rain, wind and dark days – miserable.Sketch1610815

Daisy Collage and Digital


Collage – brusho inks, real flowers, pen drawing, washi tape, sellotape [sellotape over the lower flowers and the washi as washi tape started peeling away], text [part letraset, part written, for some reason the letraset would not work for SY and I tried with several sheets].

And the collage used as a background for this little fellow.Sketch113232342

To the Moon and back

sb20p43A change from digital art , this one is from an actual sketchbook, a tall sketchbook. I applied some letters first and decorative edge [letraset – vintage stuff, didn’t work very well]. ¬†I used the page to try out the new Liquitex paint markers a friend had, on top I applied brusho inks. For the stars I used a biro pen and card stencil, then applied more brusho everywhere but on the stars. I collaged on found images and coloured those with brusho too.
