Antelope skull

This ink drawing of an antelope skull is an observational drawing from 
photographsI took when I visited the Natural History Museum in Paris this spring.

You can really feel the stare of the hollow eyes 
as they look at you coming into the vast hall.

Hey hey, spring is here and so are the pastels!

I took this old screen print I did some time ago and wanted to create a surface
pattern using it as a starting point.. I vectorised the bicycle and drew the
character and background in Illustrator. Once I was happy with the illustration I duplicated the character and bicycle, flipped it around and adjusted some of the background elements to work when the image was repeated and finally made the pattern using Illustrator's Pattern Tool, and that's it really!
Hope you like it (:



back to basics - pencil + sketchbook (and a little bit of digital colouring!)
