Today I got a bit restless and decided to finish a sketch I did last night. Its inspired by the tale of Judith beheading Holofernes (and the dozens and dozens of paintings on the subject). It was fun to work on a personal project, but it’ll be a long time before I attempt to paint another delft plate.
This (very large) illustration was done for the Inglewood Bird Santuary. They wanted illustrations to decorate the sides of large planters, to be filled with plants from different zones around Alberta. I was tasked with illustrating the foothills montane region, a region full of life. The Inglewood Bird Sanctuary has a lot of classes that visit, so I wanted to create something eye catching and fun for the kids, something that promotes a love of nature and a healthy lifestyle.
