Gorey-inspired project: A is for Alice

I recently discovered  The Gashlycrumb Tinies: A Very Gorey Alphabet Book at BrainPickings website written by Maria Popova and was amazed by the illustration style. The storyline is quite dark but I love the illustrations. It is so inspiring as I am currently into lines drawing.

Travel illustrations: Lombok

Cover illustrations I did recently for next issue of Gaya Travel Magazine. Will be out soon and will let you know if I will be getting some free copies. I did a line work concept and colored only the traveller part in watercolor. Took me accumulatively one day to complete.

I have never been to Lombok but got the reference photos from the team. So yeah, hope to go someday. Lombok looks gorgeous!
