Nice! I have a rather urgent need for a graphic artist who can help me design a sumi-e style scorpion for a logo. Your work caught my eye so I'm wondering if you're interested/available to work on this for me today/tomorrow. Something even more stylized perhaps than your piece here, but it's definitely in the right direction. I'm kind of under the gun here...sorry.
I hunted everywhere for ink and paper- the wee guy who has the Chinese shop in InShops is the man to see! This rice paper was six quid a sheet but it's top quality, a dream to paint on! PLus you get a huge sheet, enough for loads of drawings His ink sticks are a fiver and brushes are about £8 up. I tried regular watercolour brushes but they're not half as good
yeh i remember visiting him, but i managed to get a big whack of paper 250 A0 sheets and ink sticks from a chinese website about 50 quid it came to , im still working my way through them. Bradbury had loads of brushes going cheap about 6 months ago i grabbed 2 massive ones and a few small ones, but they are all gone now
Bradbury have a 4 for £10 offer on watercolour brushes right now, I got some MASSIVE ones! But synthetic brushes aren't as good as the chinese ones, they're made of goat hair and go super soft when the water soaks in
