sketch and illustration

A sketch and the eventual illustration. I like the sketch way more, but a la, I'm new at Painter.

comic strip

Our modest attempt..; it's about two pigs who are very happy with their new home. Proud enough to 'claim their right' as stock, and to take control. As the camera zooms out it becomes clear to us what actually happened: the pigs have been transferred to a 'Varkensflat': a 'Piglets-flat' where they will be chopped into meat ready for consumption. In the last frame you see two butchers laughing out loud become of the whole irony of the situation.
Well, it's been quite a weekend: the cartoon which I made with a friend for the national comic-art competition won second prize! I will soon post our entry.

I also discovered an interesting new illustrator who's art is exhibited in the Groningermuseum: Akseli Gallén-Kallela. An example of his work:

And I've been selected to illustrate the household magazine of Flexicare (a local homecare organization)!

Well, this cartoon could be I guess the start of some real illustrations? It takes my stagefright away and I might try to make more illustrations like this..who knows in acrylic? Thanks to my sister this scan turned out just like the original in PS!

Wow I draw so little these days, that it's a real pleasure to make these sketches! The top drawing is a thumbnailsketch for an illustration I made two days ago. I'll post the illustration asap. The two other sketches are preparatory work for a comic-strip I made with a guy from the studentclub for a national comicart-competition. I'll also post the comic-strip really soon.
