Journal Entry: Fri Oct 3, 2014, 5:50 AM
.
So, in the best use of my income since I got a job this year, last month I commissioned a painting from the lovely and talented STelari, and I just wanted to write this journal to say how absolutely over the moon I am to receive it. It is just so beautiful and perfect, exactly what I wanted.

Travellin' light by STelari

The beautiful traveller even has anti-gravity hair, which I am very attached to, and in a pleasant surprise, anti-gravity luggage.

What's more, the painting arrived with a copy of STelari's artbook that I ordered, The Other Beasts, which I have beeen eagerly awaiting the publication of. I don't think I've been so excited to get a package in the mail for years!

The Other Beasts by STelari

I definitely recommend you get a copy fo the book, and a commission if you can. Hopefully it will make you as happy as it did me :la: :happybounce: :la: :happybounce: :la:

I am a compulsive drawer, I love to have a pencil in my hand and a blank sheet of paper, and watch things appear (on the bus, in my lectures, at 3am when I should be asleep...). I really like to be able to use art to raise awareness of human rights issues, and I love illustrating stories.

Thanks for dropping by!

Equal Pay by erinclaireb
Equal Pay
watercolour

(ideally the left image would be on the outside of the card, and the right one inside)

The 18% on the bauble is a reference to the pay gap between men and women in Australia. (And this isn't taking into account the pay gap for women of colour, which is closer to 30%)

I had planned to make a series of perhaps five feminist christmas cards this year, that would illustrate some themes around gender equality and have words inspired by Christmas songs. Unfortuntely there is never enough time! I've finished two cards, and am not sure I'll get time before Christmas to finish a third, and I haven't found a printer who will print on the outside and inside of a card - if you know of any, please help me out :) (Smile)

Here is the other one

3am by erinclaireb
3am
Watercolour, 300gsm paper

Apparently turtles are sociable animals - who knew! Even at 3am, when you've just got home from a late shift, they want to hang out ;-) Found this out from a lovely friend who says she gets home from late shifts and has to spend some time with her baby turtle or else it gets lonely!

Tea, Blankets and Books
watercolour

A small painting for STelari, who is one of the most inspiring, encouraging, thoughtful, generous and lovely people I've had the fortune to meet :heart:

The Seven Ravens by erinclaireb
The Seven Ravens
"Next she went to ask the Moon for help to find her brothers. Bur the Moon was too cold and cruel, so she ran away."

watercolour

An illustration from the fairytale 'The Seven Ravens' by the Brothers Grimm.

I'm hoping to do some more from this fairytale, also in the format of a picture book. I'm not really happy with how this one turned out, it feels very overworked, and all the tones too dark and similar. I wish I had more time so I could do more than one painting a week, then I think I would be able to improve more quickly!

I'm a big fan of this illustrative story-book style. Your colours, compositions and subject matter take one on a journey, and are perfect examples of escapism. Just what the doctor orders on a daily basis, at least for me ;). Keep up the wonderful work! :+devwatch:

Thanks so much Athina! It looks like I missed your birthday the day before too - happy birthday to you as well! (actually, I will go and write it on your wall, it's always more fun to have birthday messages where you can go back to them :) )
