Illustration // Tuesday, January 29, 2013
'I’m an Animation Director and Illustrator, currently living and working in London. For my illustrations, I work more and more directly in Photoshop. I always draw an extremely rough little sketch on paper just for the composition and all the rest is done in Photoshop. I still draw on good old paper for character design assignments for which I use a light blue Chromacolor pencil and then I clean it up with a simple HB pencil.' Emmanuelle Walker

“This is an ongoing series of small mixed media drawings. Each one is an imagined apology combined with a pencil portrait drawn from found pictures of people I’ve never met. Although I’m British, I’ve lived in the USA for the last 16 years, which means I come from a place where everyone constantly aplogises for everything, and I live in a place where no one ever apologizes for anything. This series has come about as a result of that experience....'
