The past couple of days have been all about creating illustrations for Designer Con. I have started on a completely new series, that joins my love of mustaches with my.....with my.....well ok I'm just doing it for the mustaches, but can you blame me they are pretty wonderful. My only explanation is I was quite fond of the character "Luigi" from the Mario games when I was 8. It could also be because when I was first learning to draw I always had trouble with mouths. When my character had a Mustache, I didn't have to worry about it. That being said I'm actually glad I can't grow facial hair myself. It looks a bit itchy. 

Hand drawn versions of the Hurt series 1 of 4. To be sold at Designer Con in November.

I have also created penciled versions of my 4 hurt beings. So if you can't afford the sculpture series then you would also be able to purchase a print of these drawings at a less expensive cost. That and I've always loved the look of a quick sketch, you get this like raw life like feel that you miss out on when the drawing is fully rendered. These will also be available on my website after the end of Designer Con. 

Literally my week last week was draw, listen to Outlander on audio (loved this book when I was young it's been nice revisiting), exercise, animate, sleep and eat. My happy to say I am back in  a solid routine full of artistic exploration and potential growth. It's a nice state to be in. Lets see where this new artistic journey goes. 

Lastly I leave you with an animation test.
