I’m still visually unpacking from a recent trip to New Mexico...I don’t do much sketching in the field, instead just trying to take it all in with my senses, snapping a few reference photos on my phone if needed, then letting all the creativity happen when I’m at home in my natural surroundings. Any other illustrators have any thoughts on field sketching vs. working at home?
Made something to submit to the North Texas Botanical Art Collective’s first exhibit at the BRIT. Watercolor sequence of a blossom of Opuntia engelmannii, doing my best to inject comics into fine art and scientific illustration.
I've been fascinated with all of the wildflowers that are coloring my world lately! Still working on getting the blue in the bluebonnet right.
I made a new watercolor cover for my bestselling comic 'Myths of the Tusk!' From now on if you order a copy from me, you'll get this version!
I recently made a quick trip to the Bay Area and was as always astounded by the plant life there; I was also lucky enough to pop into my favorite art supply store, Case For Making, and pick up some new colors from their selection of handmade pigments. The fluorescent orange came in handy for that Bird of Paradise!
I've been posting pages from a rough stream-of-conscious comic about the misadventures of my buddy coyote over on my Patreon page. You can read the whole thing by supporting me on Patreon (for as little as a buck a month!) at https://www.patreon.com/owencurtsinger
