Two macaws looking for breakfast

http://www.facebook.com/JojoNorrisIllustration Drop by my facebook and say hello!

I did actually paint this specifically for illustration friday, but I’m worried it’s a wee bit obscure!

Macaws eat nuts right? I was just adamant not to draw a squirrel! (Or a nut!)

So anyway here’s two Macaws keeping a beedy eye out for breakfast!

(Painted in the usual medium of my boyfriend’s Citadel paints!
It’s hawk turquoise and  scorpion green today!
(This was painted from a fantastic photograph by Adrian Pingstone)
Happy Sunday everybody!
Thanks for looking!

Mrs Fox!

April 29, 2012 § Leave a comment

I’ve had a lovely free weekend so I’ve managed to get my sewing machine out and create Mrs Fox!
Using odds and ends of fabric I started off with a basic pattern, but I wanted to modify it from a bear to a fox, so I had to kind of wing it in parts, I’m pretty happy with how she turned out but I’d like to make her again as there were a lot of issues with her face shape etc that didn’t quite work!  I’ll keep you posted!
Thanks for stopping by!

Okay so I’ve already done an Illustration Friday today.. but the first one didn’t count.. maybe!
..I think I must be feeling super crafty at the moment.

I’ve painted this little dude in my boyfriend’s lovely Citadel paints (..awesome shades like ‘bubonic brown’!)
This grasshopper is getting ready to jump off the page!

Leaping foxes and cog pattern

For this week’s Illustration Fri is my doodle of a jumping fox, infilled with an intricate cog design. I’ve been a bit short on time recently, so I wanted to pop this up now just in case I don’t get the time to do my other concept!
The pattern was drawn by hand and then the silhoutte of the fox added. This print is available on Etsy as a print too! (http://www.etsy.com/listing/77345604/leaping-mechanical-foxes?ref=v1_other_1) and also as an original screenprint! (get in touch for more details)

These doodles are taken from my book Vulpes and Vulpes, which you can see here!

Thanks for taking a peek!

This is one not quite so conventional, little owl painting!

April 16, 2012 § 1 Comment

Right now I’m painting a pretty little owl using my boyfriend’s Citadel paints…
so that’s ‘Chaos Black’ for the eyes, ‘Vomit Brown’ for the feet and ‘Rotting Flesh’ for the feathers! .. Lovely!:)
I should probably put the paintbrush down now though, bedtime!
Night all! xx

Illustration Fri: Puzzled

April 13, 2012 § 8 Comments

For this weeks illustration Fri I thought I’d pop up this image!
This is an illustration from one of my books called ‘My Troublesome Cloud‘  (click to see more of Celio’s adventures with his cloud on blurb.com!) this page shows Celio being followed (and hailed on) by his ‘rain of terror’ and he’s completely puzzled as to why it’s always there and won’t leave him alone!
