Who doesn’t love the story of Ferdinand the Bull… although I do remember my Nan reading it to me as a little boy and I always felt sad for Ferdinand because everyone expected something from him that wasn’t “in” him… he just wanted to sit around and smell the flowers.
Hello to all the new subscribers for today, had a good run on the site views as I was featured in a One a Day post on the WordPress blog which is very cool! For the newbies, The Creative Panic is a One a Day Illustration blog and as you can see from the numbers in this post heading I have just done my 342nd post!
I mainly use Illustrator CS4 and my Wacom board to create each drawing and they take me anywhere from 10 minutes to 2 hours to do. I run a creative agency called helloFriday during the day so I don’t have heaps of time for and my “Panics” tend to be quickly drawn hence why you might see some rough line or colour work now and again.
So, only 22 illustrations to go until this project will be finished… to be honest I’m starting to feel a little sad that it will finish at 365. I’d love to start doing some more commission and editorial work so I think I’ll push that once the One a Day is done.
Thanks to all the subscribers and comments so far, it’s made it easier to keep the project going and good luck to anyone who is planning to start a One a Day blog for 2012.
Getting closer to that 365… feeling like I’ve past the point where my illustrations are improving though, becoming quite over the whole process of having to draw something every day. Then again, I’m not sure I want to stop once I reach the 365th illustration. I guess I’ll see what happens!
I’m a big fan of film cameras. I own an awesome little Yashica 635 TLR MF and now I have added a near mint Leica M3 and needless to say I’m in love. German engineering at its absolute finest. Some Zeiss Biogon 35mm ƒ2 glass has been attached and the ILFORD Delta B&W is loaded… PUMPED!
