I’m keen to hear your stories about the people that have made all the difference to your skiing and snowsports. Those gems who took, or take, the time to help you, and have really contributed to your enjoyment of the sport.
I’m hoping to collect stories to inspire a body of work for exhibition later in the year.
Whether it be an instructor, coach, teacher of relative if you are happy to share your story please either comment, or alternatively email your story to email@example.com
Thanks for each story, watch this space for how the stories will be illustrated and/ or inform my work.
How The Work Was Made
I’ve been sketching a lot recently so I chose which from the pencil sketches. I picked the star character, which I originally created as a Christmas sketch, whilst trying to get ahead for Christmas 2023.
Once happy with the pencil sketches, characters and proportions I got set up for a painting session.
These fresh new illustrations were painted yesterday and today in my favourite Kuretaki watercolour paints, then finished with Duller coloured pencils and Uni-ball eye gel pens to finish.
The paints and gel pens are the key materials that I used to create the illustrations for Ski A to Z. I’m exploring some of the colours not used for the book art, and am enjoying the different hues whilst still hoping to communicate the joy and emotion of skiing.
Many thanks for your support. Please follow or subscribe to see my work as it is created. If you like Ski A to Z please share a review where you bought it, or review it on Google Books as this helps more people to know about, and be helped by the book.
Thanks in advance for any stories that you are happy to share.
