Hanogan's Profile Picture
Artist | Professional | Varied
United Kingdom
I'm an illustrator who utilizes both traditional and digital techniques incorporated in a range of styles. I've spent years trying to find my focus and be a success whilst always attempting to enjoy what I do.

I'm currently training to work in schools whilst aiming to produce artwork and illustrations for children and children's books.
Well, it's been over a year since I last posted a journal update and it certainly feels like it too. Possibly the longest I've ever gone without updating? I'd have to check to be sure but I think it might be.

2015 ended up being a year that started full of promise but rapidly became quite a difficult year with a myriad of personal issues (all relatively minor, so no need for any concern) that made progress sluggish and forced me to question some of the things that had been core elements in my life up until that point. 

In terms of art productivity; 2015 was rather depressingly bleak on the whole and even Mad Monster Month took far longer than usual to complete with the results being questionable too. On the plus side I did get the first draft of my picture book completed and I'm hoping to push that forward soon to the second, more complete version. I've also been able to apply my skills to produce some work for other people too.

I've got a few art goals for the short term, but I won't discuss them here as I have so often done before. Instead I'll let you all see the results as they happen. 

Here's hoping you all have a productive and positive 2016.


Fake Final - Rowlet by Hanogan
Fake Final - Rowlet
Really like the new starters from the latest Pokémon game, so I thought I'd attempt some designs of their final evolutions. Up last is Rowlet, with a pretty simple design based around his bow-tie and the thought that maybe he might be a magician of sorts. Adds to a vaguely 'circus' theme for all three too. 
Fake Final - Popplio by Hanogan
Fake Final - Popplio
Really like the new starters from the latest Pokémon game, so I thought I'd attempt some designs of their final evolutions. Up next is Popplio, with a few different elements put together in a somewhat messy manner. He's a jester you see, kinda, and I liked the idea that he would remain constantly bobbling about on a ball. 
Fake Final - Litten by Hanogan
Fake Final - Litten
Really like the new starters from the latest Pokémon game, so I thought I'd attempt some designs of their final evolutions. Up first is the final form of Litten! Big tiger with a moustache..I don't think there's anything else that needs saying really.
Mermaid/Merman - Contest Entry by Hanogan
Mermaid/Merman - Contest Entry
Man, I really ought to have posted more in between this and my last contest entry. Ah well, another goal for the list I guess. Had fun with this one and I think the final design is a neat combination of a whole bunch of ideas that come together fairly well. Trying out a colouring style that is somewhat looser and sketchier..what do we think? Am I making progress or going backwards?
