Hello! Hope all is well on the interwebs. A while back Colin and I decided we wanted to create a set of alphabet cards. It's just too appealing of a project for 2 illustrators who love character design and also have an almost equal passion for typography. Here is WIP of an impala. I just wanted to share the overall style of what some of them are going to look like. I'm excited about adding more line work for texture and of course some cool hand lettering. One of my favorite things about doing this project is the studies I get to do of the animal in my sketchbook. And also getting to learn cool things about the animals. ANIMALS ARE AMAZING!!!!! I'm going to post some of my process sketches and studies later possibly tonight.
Wow. I'm eating crumpets from Trader Joes for the first time and they are blowing my mind. It's hard to impress someone that loves a morning cup of joe and something bread-y but still. They are DELISH! On another note, I wanted to share some sketches I did of some lovely ladies at Dr. Sketchy's. And for the record just because they like to pose half naked and shake their little booby tassles doesn't make them strumpets...:)
I did this doodle awhile back and wanted to go back in and add some color. I liked the roughness of them so I didn't want to over do it either. I ended up making an anniversary card with the shifty blokes for my hubs (bf at the time). He thought they were purdy cool. Yay! Swooned with a doodle. My kinda guy :)
I mean, Hallmarket....Here's a little warm up piece that I just finished. It will be for our Petit Reve booth. Colin and I are also doing some collaborative pieces under the name of Tigersheep for Hallmarket as well. Lots to do but we have some time....
What it is about them? Red heads are known to be feisty. This one is anyway. She's thinking about the the next batch of trouble she's going to get into. Also, the color red is such a cheery sight in the dead of February-the long part of winter. Boo....But Valentine's day is right around the corner. Yay, more red! I've been wanting to experiment with paper, texture and collage as well. I'm just warming up!
