2007-06-16 Illustration Friday -- Rejection
I got my girlfriend -- J -- to pose for this portrait. It's for this week's Illustration Friday topic, 'Rejection'.
I decided to 'reject' some of the work I'm busy doing in order to make this pic. I'm on several deadlines at the moment. Two clients. Loads of writing to do before the end of Sunday.
It's all coming together very nicely. But sometimes I need a break. Hence the painting.
I painted this one in ArtRage 2.2 on my Toshiba Tecra M4 tablet pc, with Snow Patrol and Blue October playing in the background, and J sitting in bed doing sudoku, and me sitting on the edge of the bed. The electric blanket is on, thanks to it being winter in South Africa.
