Nothing like an attractive subject for good motivation eh?? I got a bit addicted to drawing faces in Illustrator once I’d learnt how. It was actually useful for understanding how to draw differently by hand too though. The bottom image is from a photograph by Paolo Roversi, a favourite fashion photographer of mine who really needs more books available on Amazon. Sort it ooot Amazon/Paolo/whoever is in responsible. I did do a few portraits using loads of layers of colours but, to be honest, the simple 2/3 colour versions just look much better and combine with type much more easily too. I have loads more of these but will get cut down by the copyright partypoopers if I post them.
Does anyone know what the situation is with copyrighting for bloggers if they’re not being paid for the blog? Info online often seems inconsistent. If I own a book, for instance, can I scan pages and upload them? I wanted to do some editorial design one day and asked the Guardian if I could use their online articles. T’was a no, even though Casillero del Diablo let me post my label re-designs if I said it was my own work. Confused.
