For the last few months or so my garden has had a new resident. A lizard, to be more specific. I've named him Stumpy and he is very cute! He's also very shy, so I'm amazed that my sister managed to get this close to take a photo.

While I discover so many amazing artists through the internet, I always like to see their work as a printed collection because there's so mush detail that you can miss out on when looking at a computer screen. One artist that I love is the Brazilian illustrator Calma. His name comes from the Latin words Con Alma meaning 'with soul' which is very apt because his work is just packed with iconography and sacred art symbols. The pictures are of his book which I recently bought called Calma: the Art of Stephan Doitschinoff.

Extreme close-ups!

One thing I love about vector illustration is the ability to add so much detail into the work. It's something that people often comment on when they see my work printed, however its not so apparent in the medium-sized images on my website. So many times I've been staring at the screen at some unearthly hour, zoomed in at 3,000% on some strands of hair which I'm laboriously working to get 'just right'. It's at those moments that I wonder if anyone even sees the level of detail? Well, I've just updated my website with some close-up views of some illustrations, so if you're interested you can check 'em out here, here and here.
