The prompt for my International Zine Month 2020: Zine A Day project for Day 14 was Wings. For me, that meant practising a little bit of character design…
My work has always featured a fantastical element, and I am keen to add more fantasy into my illustrations. I used this zine prompt as a sketchbook exercise to help me design different wing elements for my drawings. I used winged animals for a touch of inspiration, but these wings mostly flew out of my fingertips without much thinking! I am really keen to use some of the butterfly style designs in future illustrations, perhaps to illustrate some faery dragons!
