when I die shoot me into space away from the sun or bury me on the moon

I’ve let this tumblr grind to a halt while I’ve been working away at some commission projects and Cat Radley updates which isn’t cool, I’m still here! I’m going to chip away at this list of things to draw, as general practice and to get better at my composition of stand alone illustrations. I’d really like to do editorial illustration work and this could be a fun way to experiment.

For lots of illustration stuff I’ve been doing lately I’ve gone back to using more traditional media which means I have irl originals! But then it’s like now what, I just file them away forever and forget about them. The pencils on the Paws poster look way cooler than the lines I missed a trick there.

lilyellen asked: Can I ask how you created that album design? What is your process and what program do you use?

Sure! For all the non traditional parts of this design I used photoshop with a wacom bamboo tablet. The process was pretty simple:

I doodled lots of doodles in pencil on an a4 piece of paper so I had this. Then I picked out my favourites and arranged them so they filled up the canvas. I wont bother going into super tedious details but then I just traced the pencils on photoshop (keeping the different colours on separate layers so it’d be easy to change later) keeping as close to the pencils as possible so it didn’t look too clean. I took the pencils away and played around to find a colour scheme that worked.

Afterwards I threw a really faint paper texture over the top because I’m a loser and because some sites like facebook make jpgs with block colour look really crappy when they compress them. I think that’s all there was to it!

Design I did for the ever-cool Fools Paradise’s third birthday mix, Happy Birthday Fools Paradise! Super great music and totally free!!!
