Illustrations: weekly challenge on Twitter
One of the great advantages of Twitter, it is that it shelters a formidable creative community. Penny Neville-Lee belongs to the artists of which I discovered work thanks to Twitter. She works with ink and watercolour. Its illustrations often put in scenes children, with much of tenderness and softness.
Filled with enthusiasm by Inktober (a drawing per day with ink during all October), she wished to renew the experiment of the creative constraints. She launched Colour-Collective (to be read, the interview of Penny for Magpiethat): an illustration per week, including a color imposed, to post on Twitter on Friday at 19:30.
Read the article on Tim Bugden’s blog too. He took Penny’s place of admin during her holidays. His drawings are amazing!
When my timetable allows it to me, I make an illustration for Colour-collective. I benefit from it to test new methods, to renew my graphic style. I also force myself not to pass more than two hours on a drawing: the ideas must fuse, and I must find that which will have the most impact.
Here my illustrations, and the color of the week in glance.
