magic mushrooms – daily sketchbook

Mushrooms come in so many different shapes and sizes and colours. These are just imaginary ones but perhaps there are as yet undiscovered ones that look exactly like this, in Faerieland perhaps?

My imagination is my escape. Life can be hard sometimes, and lately in the UK it’s just getting more and more stressful, surprising in a supposedly first-world country.

This page had an acrylic* background that I painted months or perhaps years ago. Overlaid with gouache mushroom shapes, Posca pencils worked beautifully over both types of paint, and resulted in this vibrant illustration.

I’ll have a whole video on these pencils soon, over on my YouTube channel. It’s in the filming, testing and editing phase at the moment.
