I hate drawing cars, buses, trains, bikes etc. with a passion. They never turn out the way I want them to! So when I saw this weeks theme was transportation, I groaned in horror. I was tempted to get around it by drawing someone on horseback. Horses I can draw… But the point with Illustration Friday is to challenge myself, right? So I decided to take the bull by the horns, and draw an actual vehicle. Well sort of…
I love these oldfashioned bicycles! (I like most oldfashioned things you’ll notice) and they’re easier to draw than my own bicycle which once I sit down to draw, seems to have cogs, and bits of metal sticking out everywhere! Once I’d drawn the bicycle I was a bit at a loss as to what to draw next. the bicycle looked kind of lonely. I remembered this advert I saw ages ago with a yellow balloon rising over these blue balloons, and it said “rise above the blues”, so I decided to use that, and I quite like how it turned out.
So this weeks number is transport yourself above the blues of life!
