I decided to use a tiger as my topic for this week, as this was one of my first thoughts that came to mind! Such beauty combined with absolute power.
I used a drawing tablet, working in a low opacity to build it in layers of brush strokes in photoshop.
The final artwork is in A2 size.

Have you ever stared into the eyes of a tree frog? They seem to stare aimlessly deep into your soul, mesmerizing, hypnotizing. Maybe that's just because the poor guy is scared to death, none the less it's still one of the most hypnotic pictures I can imagine!

I used artists' work as a starting point, because in order to illustrate the world, you need to 'take' from it to 'give' what you see. Not one of my favorite works, but it was experimental and fun!

A while back I started thinking, well all the epic apocalyptic stories always happens in the USA, etc.
So I thought, what if it happened in South Africa? This is a tablet drawing I did of Market street, Central JHB after the robot industry took a wicked turn on our own people. Nothing left, except for a few wrecks...and a robot lady in red. This took me about a week to complete, mostly because its A1 (594mm x 841mm) size.
Great fun as always, worth the many hours of work.
