Still on the subject of faces and heads, I had a binge drawing session yesterday. It was tough going at first because I have been feeling a bit blocked when it comes to the human face for a few days now, but I find if you just start with something - anything at all - eventually the frustration works itself through and something inspirational and personal pops up to grip the imagination. After that, you are up and away and the flow is back.
In the end I made enough drawings to post on my Binky McKee Instagram for the rest of the week!
Thanks for visiting, see you next week!
THE WEEKLY: BINKY McKEE AND ME
Welcome to my blog where I share my work as an illustrator as well as occasional events from the week.
I illustrate under the pen-name of Binky McKee, McKee being my mother's maiden name. Binky was the name of every single cat my great-grandmother owned - about 40 of them during her life! It seemed natural to devote my more nurturing, colourful, story-telling work to the female side of the family, whilst practicing my art work under my paternal name.
Currently I am working on illustrating a children's book, and of course I can't resist an Instagram challenge such as Folktale Week or Inktober!
I hope you enjoy the work!
