Ruby Rose - Illustration by Lolene O'Hara



This Ruby Rose chick has broken the god damn internets recently. I get it. She's quite the babe. Although I wasn't particularly drawn to her character in 'Orange is the new black' (Morello and Poussey are my favs), Ya'll can't deny there's something very captivating about her. 







She seems to be on my newsfeed every time I browse through it. I thought I might as well be a sheep and draw her too.  I think she's also engaged to Roald Dahl's granddaughter. That's pretty swell! I could google this fact but I don't put a lot of thought into the writing of these blog posts. Can you tell?!!   



The process of this illustration was a collaboration of illustrator and Photoshop. It took about 3 hours in total. For the background images I basically just brought my camera into a store and took as many pictures I could of patterns I found on objects. It beats buying them and I don't really care if anyone looks at me weird whilst I'm doing it. 
I really want to get more into drawing flowers as I think this might be one of the first flowers I've ever drawn. Like, In my life! 


Anyway. Follow me on my other social medias and stuff. Okay whatever, Bye!

Conor McGregor - 'Notorious MMA'

Last year I did this illustration of Conor McGregor. I am not really a fan of any type of fighting sports. I've only ever watched them if someone else is, or if I'm feeling awkward and it's on the telly in a social environment. To tell the trust, I don't know if I like Conor McGregor all that much either. I respect his motivation and skill but by golly, sometimes I think he should. just....!! Oh, I suppose it all comes with the nature of the sport and the competitive attitude which is forced upon them.

Anyway, I drew him.

I kind of regret using this pose as whenever I google him now, lots and LOTS of people have used this photo still as a reference to their artwork.  This illustration got a nice bit of attention from the likes of Joe.ie and a few people who know a thing or two about the sport. I can't say much more than that, really. The background is an image of Crumlin, His hometown (I think).

Bye for now my little cupcakes (If you've read this far, congratulations!! I'd never say that) HA!!!

Anna Lee & Jesse. Lovers Illustration

I have been stalking, I mean watching 'Anna Lee & Jesse' for a few years now. They're a couple who live in LA. Jesse is a photographer and Anne Lee is a hair stylist. They have a beautiful dog also which is much of the reason I follow their youtube vlogs.
It was coming up to Valentines day and I wanted to make an illustration of a couple. As most of the people I illustrate are fashion blogger/Vloggers I didn't even need to put my thinking hat on of who I'd illustrate because they're hands down , my fav. I like their style and also the fact they're not a bubblegum youtube couple. (Y'know the ones I mean) If you like your minimalistic, edgy, chic but uber cool style , Check'em out!

Elastic Heart- Sia

Sia's music video for 'Elastic Heart' seems to be all the rage. I personally think the video is captivating but I can see where the criticism comes from. There's no denying that the little lady in the video is a very captivating little actress/dancer. As for Shia LeBouff... well I don't really know. 







All in all, This illustration took me about 5 hours to make. Hope ya'll like. x
