Sometimes, when you are struggling for creative ideas, it takes a mindless session, messing around in Photoshop, to help oil the brain cells. I have spent today doing just that. Using just my wacom tablet, and lots of layers and textures, I came up with three little narrative and decorative images. Top to bottom: Autumn Leaves, Blizzard, and Navigator. 
It’s been an incredibly useful exercise, as I now have an idea for my 2012 calendar, which I had been struggling with. It would be great to know your thoughts.
Hope you have all had a great Bank Holiday weekend!
*UPDATE*
I had no internet most of Bank Holiday Monday evening, so I did another digital painting. This one is called Formation Fishing. 
I also got excited today with the launch of a new digital pen by Wacom, called the Inkling. It could really shake up the way illustrators and designers work. It’s definitely on my shopping list!

    >This is great Alice! I especially love the desaturated tones and the layering you've done. I think these would be lovely additions to a calendar 🙂

    >I love 'Formation Fishing', especially for the colours. And I also read about Wacom's Inkling, I wish I had it on my desk right now. It must be quite an experience to use it!

    >I love your digital drawings. I don't (can't!) use photoshop. I love the textures and transparencies.
    I'm also madly excited about the Inkling – and it's on my shopping list too.
