New images to be uploaded to the shops

As promised, I have some new images which will be going into the shops over the next few months, and here are some more I’d like to share with you.

ADWoman&PatternB&WSM

The above was recreated from an original black and white photo from the 1920s. I believe she was a Ziegfield Folly Dancer.

ADWomanHeadshotSM

If you’re a movie buff who loves classic movies, then you may recognise the face above – Clara Bow. She was a huge star in her day. I thought she had such an interesting face – certainly not the classic beauties often seen at the time.

ArtDecoWomanWithLeavesSM

Here’s another face from around that time. This actress never gained the fame of Clara Bow. Have you ever seen her before? The actor was Louis Brooks.

GretaSM

How could one forget Greta Garbo. She played some very interesting roles over the years, and was successful in her comedy characters through to the more serious parts.

CirclesMultiColouredSwirlSM

And now for something completely different… I was doing some experimenting and came up with the pattern above. I liked it so much that I’ve decided to include it in my shops. It’ll likely just go onto shirts.

I love my pug finalSM

A friend of mine asked me to create a cartoon-style pug with this message on it. She’s mad about her dogs, and wants to wear a t-shirt to tell everyone!

orange-maidenSM

Edited and recoloured, this is a classic image which I thought was so lovely, that I should use it.

That’s about all of my news for now. Once I get my head back into my writing again, the graphic designs will probably get put on hold. While I was busy writing, I didn’t realise how much I was missing using that particular part of my creative mind, until I found some of my old, unused images/designs, and began to work on them.

Hopefully, I’ll get a chance to drop back in and share some more images/ideas with you before too long.

Earlier Images

When I first started creating graphic designs I focussed a lot on old photos and found some amazing images that I just couldn’t resist working on. Many of these dated from the early 1900s through to 1940s, with a special focus on the art deco era.

Many of these photos required intensive work, especially when they’d been damaged or had lost some quality. My initial task is to cut the person out of the original photo before I began working on repairing and recolouring it. Once I am satisfied with the work, I then have to create various levels of colour which is quite painstaking. After that, I either create or find an appropriate background to add in.

Some, like the following two images, required hours of painstaking fine work, selecting individual pearls or coins and colouring them individually. But the hard work was worth it in the end, don’t you think?

The thing that drew me to the following image was not so much the beauty of this young woman, but her trapped expression, bordering on despair, as she prepares for her wedding. Dating back to around 1923, I image this Tunisian bride had very little, if any choice in her bridegroom.

Tunisian Bride.
