Lorrie Whittington’s Sketchbook Art

Sketchbook drawing by Lorrie Whittington 2

I had recently featured a drawing by Brit illustrator Lorrie Whittington, and it received great response from readers on Facebook and Google+. And due to the interest in this artist, I am now showcasing more images from her sketchbooks. I also had a chance to speak with Whittington, and if she could estimate the time it takes to complete a full-page drawing, it would probably take 3 to 4 hours. However, she rarely does it in one sitting. “My sketchbooks are scattered around the house and in my bags, so I draw in them when I am not doing anything else, like finished work/commissions or housework.” Her inking techniques include stippling and crosshatching, and despite the varied subject matters from geometrical shapes to portraits, she seems most passionate about Nature.
