Hi all. Has this been said before?

/u/Shitty_Watercolour 's work reminds me of illustrations by Roald Dahl (when they have eyes other than black dots) along with another artist with a similar style that I can't put my finger on. I'm almost certain they did work for some children's books, like Dahl.

Anyway, I'm wondering if anyone has any idea on who I'm thinking of? Or maybe it's just Dahl. Cheers.

Edit: Quentin Blake is Dahl's illustrator :)

The watercolour pencils seem to not work. When I put water on them, they stay the same instead of being watercolour-y. Does anyone know how to fix this?

I love the quality of these modern-era works, but I want to relive the journey

OK, so I got my secret santa parcel for pens and stationery, and I think I may have got /u/Shitty_Watercolour... I got sent a card along with my gifts, and the drawing on the front and the handwriting inside the card looks awfully similar... anyone know how to confirm? I mean, even if its not, it is still a particularly cool set of gifts, but I really want to know if its him or not... A sample of his handwriting: http://i.imgur.com/9vNeb.jpg Picture of my card (front and inside): http://imgur.com/Y9apsJy https://imgur.com/xZO4Lkq EDIT: Additional photo of label attached to parcel: http://imgur.com/KbZdP2v

EDIT 2: ok, question answered! It's not shitty watercolour, but it is pretty cool regardless! Thanks to reditors trying to do handwriting recognition, Mr Shitty himself for answering the question (it's an honour sir), but most of all my Santa for my amazing gifts! I am away until Sunday PM, but I will post my gift on the SS website I promise!

I am wanting to frame a poem with an illustration for a birthday present. The poem is called "Nude Study" by Garrison Keillor. In it he depicts what a sleeping position that I can't find much illustration on but some call it the romantic sleep position.

An accurate image of the position (though mirror to what I want).

My shitty paint conception of the painting.

Poem

I'd would like it to be simple, but able to stand on its own. The only color request is that she be a shade of yellow and I be a shade of teal/blue.

I much appreciate the effort if you decide to take on this small project, and appreciate your time in reading if you do not.

Thank you!

Edit: I am willing to pay for your time and effort.
