A portrait of Yuki, chalk and charcoal
This piece evolved from a little pencil sketch I made of a neighbour’s cockerel during an exercise for a distance learning illustration course.
I scaled up the sketch and used it to cut a stencil through which I applied acrylic paint to reclaimed wood. It still serves as a house sign for the home of the cockerel and his human companions.
This image is now available on postcards and as digital prints (A3 and A4) and I can stencil him onto almost any surface.
