These are just some little exercises I've done to keep myself in practice. They're all about 3-4 inches long, on cut out pieces of bristol. I think maybe I'll try to make some little scrapbooks with things like this in it. I'm also working on a much larger piece that I'm excited to finally finish.
PS Jimmy, I made sure to throw in some glitter glue just for you.
finally! i feel like i haven't posted anything in aaaaaages! probably because i really haven't.
when i went to the beach, i did a couple of sketches: i had fun with them. in particular, i enjoyed drawing the little ship model that i'd purchased. i love itty bitty ships.
and finally! a final draft of my book cover design! nothing too exciting, but i'm pleased with it, despite having changed direction a couple of times. i'm not 100% set on the color, but i do like it. we'll see. any suggestions? font edits?
remember that butterfly i'd embroidered back in the fall? well it's been on my etsy for aaaaaaaages, and today it was featured in an etsy finds spotlight, which means that it made it to the front page of etsy, and was emailed to 13,500 subscribers!
it's not really that big of a deal, but i was just so thrilled by it...i can't even express myself. small things really excite me.
as for current work, i have sketches that i've just not had the time to scan, and i'm almost to the point where i'd feel comfortable showing drafts of my book cover design. i think that as far as this blog goes, jimmy is winning. :op
I'm all about sketches these days. I'm reluctant to show these since I'm right smack in the middle of the process, but i will anyway, since all I'm looking for at this point is advice on the composition and colors.
This is a rough start for a 8'x12' mural I was asked to do in my hometown. My idea is a landscape of fairy tale characters. it's hard to make out a few of them (that's the musicians of Bremen on stage next to the cottage, the 3 bears checking their mailbox down the road from Repunzel's castle, and the princess on top of the glass hill across the street from jack's beanstalk) but you get the point. Enjoy
