The second assignment for the Pikaland Artist Bootcamp asked us to do three versions of the same picture - one that's just black and white, one collage of previous works (it seems maybe I interpreted this too literally) and one that is in the medium of our choice.
This is my collage. It took hours. I think I made it too complicated. It's meant to be my boyfriend and I talking about maths, and then I made a collage of cut-up and painted over maths notes, as well as some old pictures. It's perhaps a little bit childish.
I was also trying to be inspired by Persian miniature painting, using bright colours and patterns.

This week's topic is "ripple" and Illustration Friday is dedicated to the animals in the ocean affected by the oil spill disaster. I thought maybe this picture that I had just done the other day is appropriate. I added in some water to make it more rippled. I don't think there are any penguins in the Gulf of Mexico, but they're affected by other oil spills...

I just started the Pikaland Artist Bootcamp. (It's been a really busy week for me because I started this and I did a four-day night class in how to use Illustrator.)
This is the work I did for the first assignment. I did it with Illustrator and sometimes I felt like I really had to fight with Illustrator to make it do what I wanted. It seems there's still a lot to learn.
