Meet The Artist 2017

It's that time of year again, where every illustrator seems to do their #meettheartist tag on Twitter and Instagram, so I thought I'd give it another go. With this tag, you do a self portrait, a little bit about you, your likes and dislikes, and new to this year (as far as I remember anyway) is a little drawing of what you carry around with you daily, like a 'What's in my bag" style illustration. You can see last years illustration here, and boy have I improved! I think I spent much longer doing this one to make it more of an illustration rather than it just being a quick rough doodle just so I could say I've done it. I've also noticed that I've improved in getting my proportions right, it took me a long time to do the initial sketch using a reference photo, and simplifying my line work so it isn't as rough and sketchy. You can see my initial sketch in my 'A Week Of #OOTD's' post. Below is my final image, but I thought I'd treat you to some little close ups as a lot of the detail is missed when looking at a distance! I would to love to see your versions, so if you've done one this year please send them my way! :)
