"Insta Love" - 2014


Back in 2014, to give myself a break from my usual process of making illustrations, I decided to abandon all digital editing, compositing and colouring using any applications on my computer. I referred to this period in my career as "No Digital" - I worked for 101 days and set out to make a traditionally illustrated piece every single day.

On my old Instagram account, I wanted to do a set of exclusive No Digital illustrations, based on the square size of Instagram's original aspect ratio. Here are the 21 illustrations I completed from 2014.

These illustrations were very lose in style; I wouldn't do much planning or roughs at all and firstly build swatches of colour using different mediums like marker, watercolour and pencil. I would then draw the subject matter over these blocks of colours and shapes. I made several art tributes to people I like during this project, like Daft Punk, Tom Hardy and Michael Jackson.
Pencil, ink, watercolour, marker, coloured pencil and technical pen on coloured paper.
