Nesting dolls

IMG_0959

When I was little we had a set of traditional Russian nesting dolls – matryoshkas. It was something magic – a doll inside another, and then you open it and there is even smaller inside.
And now I got some blank ones. As I am working on some new ones, I post the older ones.

Crowd

I got obsessed with sorting things. This post is about crowds of animals which during the years became almost my trademark or how they call it.

Now, looking back I notice, how the lines got clearer/cleaner. If I wanted to colour something with computer, it is always easy to do so with sharp lines. Obsessed with patterns.

Mazda

I have completely forgot to post something there, and now I am doing it again, so there is a promised pictures from the Warnambool gallery and Mazda competition. Participants had to create a design to promote South West Victoria. Winning design (me me!) was pasted up on a Mazda car.
These are few pics of details and the whole design.

Bicycles

I like sorting things and putting them into collections. Recently I’ve noticed that I have a bunch of drawings with (mostly) animals riding bikes.

01

Australian animals on a bike from a sketchbook.

03 Fox, rabbit, lemur, crested tern and some long legged dog. I used this one to make a print. I can’t remember the name of technique, but it involves getting some photosensitive plate, maybe called solar plate, transferring the image by just leaving it in the sun, washing and printing.04

Since it was first time I did with this technique, the result isn’t perfect. But you get an idea.

04+

So I got more drawings of few animals sharing one bike. Postcard for www.favoritepostcard.com

05

Another sketch, I know I started the illustration with coloured pencils to test the new paper, but can’t find it anywhere.

05+ Then there are different types of bikes. The funny named bicycle – Penny-farthing from 1800′s

06 Even made a stencil and printed on a bag.

07

This fox has been everyone’s favourite.

08

A tandem bike. Experiment with gold foil and the envelopes I use for my cards.

09 I’ve seen some guys cycling with surfboard on their bikes. Actually we even saw one with windsurfing gear on a bike!

10+

This is one of drawings who were made into stickers on the Mazda car (I’ll post pics in next post).

11 12Mountain bike.
13 14

Cruiser bike.

15

Bicycle – street food stand in Thailand.

16

BMX

17

And with a baby trolley.

18 19

About riding bikes together. Sketch and the actual drawing. I can’t remember what was it for.

20

Postcard for Nieko Rimto.

21

This is how the card looks before folding it. Riding bike to get some groceries.

22

And another one.

23 Circus.24 Exercising bicycle.

25

Couple of variations – scooter.

26

Or another scooter, I am confused with the name – both things are called the same.

27

Another sketch. A rare one – with people.

28

And of course – a selfie, umm, I mean self portrait :)

Nothing serious

nieko rimto003

“Nieko rimto” which in Lithuanian means nothing serious is a wonderful publishing house in Lithuania making beautiful books and lovely stationery. And I was contacted to draw few postcards.

Here they are:

They also made some souvenirs like magnets, paper for letters.

And since then my friends and family members sent me lots of pictures of those cards in the bookshops, book fair, etc. Thanks!
