SoulStrike first look

As mentioned in a previous blog, I've been working on a series of pencil drawings.  Known collectively as SoulStrike, these images are designed with apparel in mind, in particular bowling shirts, t-shirts and tank tops.  They could also be used on accessories such as bags, wallets and hair accessories.  The poster featured here is drawn with Faber-Castell coloured pencils and watercolour pencils (not wet) on A3 cartridge and shows the more feminine side of SoulStrike, with roses, lotus and the central theme of bowling around the SoulStrike logo.  Images from this collection will also be available collectively as tattoo flash art, however I'm still working on getting reliable scanned images from pencil drawings to produce good quality prints.  The photo here was just taken with my iPod, hence the blur and lighting being poor, but the colours have come up very similar to the original.

And here is this week's submission for Illustration Friday.  The topic is "Golden."  I was pleased with the way my autumn leaves turned out on last week's entry, that I decided to focus on them with this one.  And, of course, there has to always be butterflies or roses in my work, hence the psuedo-monarchs dancing with the falling leaves.

Next week's blog should include a start on the first brief of the Lilla Rogers Global Talent Search, as it hits the emails of the participants on 5th August.  Can't wait to see what it is!
