Even though the 52 Week Illustration Challenge community is now disbanded, at least we were given a list of themes to work through 2018 with, and a hashtag to use #52WIC.
So I have been working through them:
The theme for Week 1 was Me.
At the time I was feeling miserable, as you can see. That was me for a good 2-3 weeks starting just before New Year.
The theme for Week 2 was Sweet, and this is something that would definitely cause a sugar rush:
For Week 3 on the official website the theme was 'Hybrid', but on the Facebook group somehow it became Meadow. Hybrid wasn't easy, but I eventually came up with this solution:
I filled a page with sketch scribbles for the theme of Circles, and this robot was chosen to fulfill the theme. He doesn't look particularly happy, but few sentient beings are happy when they are going around and around in circles.
'Would you just go and keep Junior content for a while?' was probably the command that initiated this response.
Then along came the theme of Flight for Week 5, the first one after the Facebook group got archived.
Different robot, but a similar command, 'Keep Junior occupied for a while, show him a few asteroids'.
This image took a lot longer because it was coloured digitally, the ink work was still hand drawn.
Should you know anyone who is looking for artwork like this, please contact me.
