Roy Orbison WIP

Getting the details right in the hair
I've been working on a new illustration of one of my all-time favourite voices in music - Roy Orbison. I love his iconic sunglasses, haunting lyrics and that voice that got him the nickname 'the Caruso of Rock.'

Below is a few more WIP shots, to stay updated with my latest work and inspirations make sure you check out my instagram https://instagram.com/annecobai/

Making progress but need a helping hand from Grey's Anatomy

Sketching in some details over the top of the digital work so far. Using a lot of creative license / imagination with drawing the skeleton!

I'm on Instagram!

Sharing my work in progress pics and inspiration on Instagram

Those that have been following my blog for some time may have noticed that I don't post here as often as I used to.

I've been blogging here for nearly 5 years, and I have enjoyed sharing posts that explain my process while being able to show multiple pictures of how my illustrations evolve. Its always been a huge encouragement for me getting feedback from my readers whether it's a comment on the blog post or an email.

I'm on instagram now and loving the ease of sharing my WIP pics and inspiration. I'm working on a new illustration at the moment which I can't wait to start posting pics of!

What Do You Want to Do Before You Die?

The four guys from The Buried Life on the cover of their book

I'm currently reading the book What Do You Want to do Before You Die?

It's a really inspiring read of how four young guys formed a group called The Buried Life and wrote a bucket list of 100 goals. They ended up achieving most of them like playing basketball with President Obama and being on the Oprah show.

The rest of the book is filled with bucket list ideas from people all around the world. Reading this book is so inspiring, after reading some of the goals they achieved it reinforces that truly, anything is possible.

Also as a side note - I posted this pic on my new instagram account, to keep up with my illustrations and work please check it out here.

Illustration Mini Movie



So for a while now I've wanted to create a short video showcasing my illustrations and how I create them.  Well, I finally did it and it's a 40 second behind-the-scenes peek at my vector illustrations and the stages of creation, from initial sketches, to digital layout, colour options and the final illustration.

I had a lot of fun making it, probably the hardest thing was deciding on a song to use! But I think Queens of the Stone Age is a perfect fit.

Note: Due to the song I put with the video, Youtube won't allow the video to play on mobile devices. If you're on a mobile and want to view the video check it out on my Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/video.php?v=556098777828791&set=vb.274254949346510&type=2&theater

YOLO


Music is very close to my heart so I was super happy when YOLO Mag published my illustrations and an article about me in their latest Music-themed issue. Some great interviews in this magazine with legendary photographer Tony Mott and amazing illustrator Helen Green.
