My New Obsession…

OK so I have a tendency to become obsessed with fictional worlds – be that TV, books, etc.  My latest of these is a television series called Our Flag Means Death – I haven’t been this crazy about a television show since I was a teenager contributing to fan-zines about the X-Files.  My friends and family will be well aware of this, because I haven’t shut up about it. 

I’ve been loving seeing the art of other fans on Twitter and Tumblr.  My favourite so far is Illustory art – I just love the way they draw the characters & had to get myself a “Lucius is not dead” T-Shirt from their Redbubble store.  My new office at work is something of a cave and I want to decorate with lots of things that make me happy – so I’ve also ordered this print to go on the wall.  

Anyway.  As much as I would love to do art of the characters, drawing/painting people is not really my thing, so I decided to have a go at making some artwork centered around some of my favourite quotes for the show.  I can see myself doing more of these, but this is what I’ve come up with so far:

watercolour painting of a wreath of different types of leaves with a handwritten quote in the middle saying "I bet there's some insane foliage"
Insane Foliage 2
Watercolour wreath painting featuring leaves, flowers, oranges, a lighthouse, teacups, a dagger, a moth, books, a seagull, a quill and a plant, with a handwritten quote in the middle saying "Talk it through as a crew".
Talk it through as a crew
Wreath of a variety of leaves and foliage painted in watercolour with the quote "I bet there's some insane foliage" handwritten in the middle.
Insane Foliage 1


I absolutely loved painting these and can see myself doing some more similar ones in the future.  If you’re a fan like me, leave me a comment with your favourite quote you’d like to see in a wreath!  If you haven’t seen the show, I highly recommend it!
