Drawlloween 2019 - I love Halloween and saw a draw prompt for Halloween posted on Instagram called Drawlloween and decided I would try the challenge of creating a new drawing for each day of the Month in October. These images were hand drawn, scanned into the computer and edited in Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Illustrator. For the images I tried to use a limited colour palette or various shades of a colour in an image. In these images I have tried to portray some humour in them. 

Please use the arrow buttons to see each individual image, there is also the prompt of the image that appears when you hover near the bottom of the picture. 

Sherlock Holmes Story Illustrations -  Here are some illustrations created after reading some Sherlock Holmes Illustrations. These illustrations were hand drawn and edited in Adobe Illustrator and Adobe Photoshop. The stories are written by Arthur Conan Doyle

The Man with the Twisted Lip

The Musgrave Ritual

A Scandal in Bohemia

The Fox & The Crow- Illustration based on Aesop's Fables where a fox uses flattery to obtain a piece of cheese from a crow. I tried to use perspective of the crow looking down to the fox. This image was hand drawn, scanned into the computer and edited in Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Illustrator. I really like the use of colours and detail on the crow in this illustration. This story is generally a cautionary tale about flattery. 

The Fish and the Fisherman- Is a russian fairytale from the 1900's. In this illustration I decided to give the fisherman a modern and traditional fisherman look with the yellow waterproof overalls. This piece was hand drawn, and edited in illustrator and photoshop. I like the use of texture and gradient across various parts of the image.
