Hello everyone! So, continuing with the animal themed posts, I’m going to show another much loved illustrator of mine. Lorna Scobie is a freelance illustrator based in London who loves drawing animals (a girl after my own heart!), using a variety of media to create spontaneous marks and drawings which often befit the subject matter.
Scobie does draw humans but my personal favourites are always her animals, what amazes me is her work ethic and speed of drawing. For example I was lucky enough to participate Scobie’s ‘1 Day’ event in which she challenged herself to draw as many animals as possible in a day. She took open requests from people suggesting what animals to draw (I said polar bear) and then at the end of the day she sold them for £6. And boy did they go quick! I didn’t mange to get the polar bear, but I did manage to grab myself an adorable otter, which I’ll post a picture up soon. For now, I’ll leave you with the digital version:
UPDATE! Here’s the picture of Lorna’s art next to my Valentine’s Day card from the other half and our little otter, Tarka as promised:
Happy Easter Sunday everyone, hope it's filled with lots of chocolate and er, otters? I was lucky enough to participate in @lornascobie 1 day project in which she challenged herself to draw as many animals suggested by the public as possible. I was hoping for the polar bear, unfortunately I didn't, but I got this equally lovely River Otter, which I like to think is a spitting image of @daytripper90 and I's little Tarka. Speaking of, I'm also unashamedly using this opportunity to show off my *ahem* otterly cute Anniversary card. ♥ Thanks to @lornascobie and @daytripper90 !
