Analogue illustration, in pure form, is a new-born passion of mine. When my illustration style started taking shape a couple of years ago, my illustration process started out by scanning my pen-and-ink line work, followed by adding other scanned elements like watercolour and gouache, and fitting the two together digitally. But over time I wanted to create purely analogue illustration, where pen-and-ink and watercolour (or other mediums like gouache, coloured pencils, and art markers.) lived together on the same page. That’s how this blog series was born.
Another thing about this category is that it will allow me to create natural medium illustrations that do not fit into any of my official Illustrated Blog Series. If you haven’t already checked them out, here they are: Illustrated Travel Stories, Illustrated Middle Eastern Recipes, Illustrated Italian Recipes, Illustrated Mediterranean Kitchen Tools, and Illustrated Women Who Can.
In here, I hope to have the freedom to explore other topics outside food and travel illustration, as well as discover cuisines other than the Mediterranean, North African, and Middle Eastern ones, which are the focus of my illustration blog.
There’s another category that I have introduced recently and it is called Digital Illustration. That’s where I will be posting artwork that is either 100% digital, or one that is created by digitally fitting different elements together.
