Up In The Air

Yesterday I read a story in one of the weekend magazines about a man who crossed the Channel using just helium balloons to carry him. He talked about how quiet and peaceful it was in the air with no engines or propellors, and it just seemed like a nice thing to draw (although neither he nor the balloons really looked like this, I used lots of artistic licence)...



I've been experimenting with a sort of textured, printed look... here are the first runs!



I'm doing some new illustrations for my portfolio and for when I update my website... I thought a horoscope would be a nice start to the New Year (not that I ever read mine, but it's a ready-written brief)!
