highlight: Treehouse

For this week’s illustration friday theme, I want to highlight my current project which is a sketchbook entry for arthouse coop’s Sketchbook Project. My chosen theme is treehouse. My fox maiden will be the featured centrefold…Its her treehouse actually some of her roommates are also featured.

All participants in the Sketchbook project receive a small sketchbook measuring 5.25″ W x 7.25″ H, with 32 pages of 70 lb stock paper. After I was through taking the covers and pages apart, it is now 5.25″ W x 7.25″ H, of 110 lb cardstock of 12 japanese fold-out panels ready for me to create foxy’s treehouse and share it with the world. My sketchbook along with 28,839 participants will be exhibited in museums and galleries throughout the United States, Canada as well as London and Melbourne. I just realised my deadline for submission is January 31st –AAK! So, this means I have to strap on the boot straps tighter and start motoring! My gameplan, when the under drawing is complete, is to render it with a combination of acrylic paints and coloured pencils. Wish me luck! I need it!  Here is more info on the project and why YOU should participate.

  1. Looks great! Wish I could see it better, not as a photo– and GOOD LUCK with finishing on time =) Can I ask what that blue underpencil is that you’re using?

  2. Really nice artwork

    Not meaning to be rude, but isn’t the point of illustration Friday to illustrate a new piece that is related to the topic, rather than just get an existing unrelated piece and say that you’re hi lighting its existence?

    1. Thats a valid question Bag20@yahoo.com. If you keep up with illustration friday regularly, you will notice that not everyone illustrates a new piece related directly to the topic. Besides that, this week’s theme was really open to interpretation. I just thought it would be convenient this week to tie it in with what I am currently working on.

    1. Thanks for dropping by Sarah and thanks for the positive vibes 🙂 means a lot to me! I look forward to seeing yours next time I am in New York!
