Current Projects – Peacock Painting and Folio Society Competition 2012

So am fully back home now all ready to crack on with some brand new projects!

Started this peacock painting project about a year ago and got shamefully behind on it during my 3rd uni year so I think now is the time to take it up again: https://sarahkirk.wordpress.com/2010/07/25/peacock/

Am also very excited about the new House of Illustration/Folio Society book competition, last year’s was ‘The Outsider’ by Albert Camus and I never managed to finish it completely. This year we have Angela Carter’s ‘The Bloody Chamber’ which luckily I not only own but also have already done a project on it! How useful!

Still here it is:

This is a project doing a tattoo design for a friend which I shamefully have been doing on and (very) off for several months, however finding myself with no more uni work distractions, I can finally get round to doing these little things that have been in the pipeline for a while. Anyway the plan was to develop the last design of these which you can see in October’s post: https://sarahkirk.wordpress.com/2010/10/08/a-little-dragon-distraction/ into a few more variations:
