Here is my illustration for IF's theme this week 'Idle'. This is the first picture that came to my head and after thinking of a lot of other stuff it's this I came back to. When I first heard the theme I thought 'Idol' and got quite excited, having visions of big gold statues and when I saw it was the other spelling the thought of pleading ignorance crossed my mind but then I realised that's not the spirit and I shouldn't shy away from the set theme!
This has taken the longest of any of the illustrations on my blog, if you liked this don't forget to check out the rest ;) And I have aTwitter where I will posting links to new stuff first!
One last thing, I finally have some free time for freelance and private commisions so drop me an email if you or anyone you know is interested! Lozzie'at'gmail.com :)
And now the curiosity begins about next weeks theme!

Sometimes even Pandas wonder 'Why is bamboo hollow?'
This week's Illustration Friday topic was so hard! I immediately thought of a tree hollow and wanted to draw an owl in a dark forest. However after looking through the link viewer I saw so many variations of this and I wanted to do something a tad more original. Suddenly the idea of bamboo came to me and I went with it!
Also a big thank you for all the lovely comments on my first illustration from last week, it's nice to have such positive and like minded people being so encouraging :)
Time taken - 2 hours approx.
Sketched in pencil and coloured in Photoshop

Here's my first go at IF's theme. A tough one this week.
The brief story behind it is a clown gets promoted to the tightrope but is finding keeping his balance harder than he first thought. This is intended to be a snap shot of him practising (this is way he's outside) and trying not to be so shaky when it comes to heights.
Total time approx: 4 hours, from scratch in photoshop.
