Winter has finally arrived in Melbourne. And the 52 Week Illustration Challenge theme is clouds.
I didn’t have to do anything extra for the Challenge this week really. I am working with clouds all the time for Thunderstorm Dancing, and although I can’t post an entire image until the book is published, I did post a fragment of the spread I was working on, which features approaching storm clouds (below). Froth, spatter, roar and hum.
This spread was finished until my Beloved told me that the veranda perspective needed alteration… the same veranda that the Cat Called Thunder is trotting across. So I will finish it (again) today.
I’m not saying I relate to that cranky terrier up the top. Not at all. Nope. And I do appreciate the help with perspective.
I did find myself wandering off to do cloud blob doodles to cheer myself up though.
Monster cloud blobs…
Wolf cloud blobs, crossing raging rapids…
Bird cloud blobs… one of whom just might possibly be a vulture cloud blob… (Should that be who or whom?)
And lastly this rather bizarre Cloud Blob Doodle which in fact I had done a week or two ago as a variation on the blob improvisation idea. Wherever that photo was taken, it wasn’t Melbourne this week.
Absolutely love your work Judy!
Thanks Jess. Love your work too! It’s delight to see it coming up on the Challenge wall. Hope you don’t get stage fright with the picture book with Tania. (I would)
I love your cloud doodles, great fun, and so refreshingly imaginative, brilliant !
