Lets Fly...

Ugh! I've neglected my own passion because of laziness... long story so I'm not going to even start.
I'm trying to get back into the groove by making a vow to myself to create a piece of artwork everyday..
HA I am already a couple of days behind. None the less, I have found my muse and have begun working again!

Still there is no such thing as a perfect plan. Problem? I have reverted back to becoming the working night owl. Sleeping by day and working by night. You're probably thinking... why is that so bad? Well... I do have a 9-5 job so coming into work with only 3-4hr sleep is.. exhausting. Not good being a sour grape at work. Alas.. never ending problems.

Anyway, here's the latest I'm working on. In the spirit of the holidays I've decided to create themed cards for festivities in a persons life. These include: birthdays, holidays, graduation, etc...

This is what I have for my first card. To be completely honest, I was going to make a "It's a Baby Boy!" card because one of my co-workers just had the most adorable baby name Jude and I wanted to make her a card.. but it's starting to look more like a birthday card.. We'll see how it turns out in the end.

I'll be posting the finished piece soon. (Hopefully..)

hoot

so during my whole out-of-school runt, I was reading one of my favorite Book series, Alpha and Omega by Patricia Briggs. She inspired this sort of Native American folk style for my owl.







Im still working on the color palette and tweeking some of the awkward lines
but I added some texture and this is what is it so far:

stage 3:





i'm trying to decide if I should make it into a poster or large postcards...

the next step will be to finesse the illustrations, finalize the colors, fix the awkward spaces and add other necessary type.

Fashion forward

So if you look at all the women/girl apparel stores, you'll notice a lot of fashion illustration faces, bows, and sort of the whimsical gal. Well so is Sears.
So here are some illustrations I've been working on that can be used as patterns are just straight graphic on a shirt.
