Going totally away from the typical inktober feel, here is a design made for Spring/ Summer ’19. I love how the yellows and purples compliment one another and if it was ever printed on a card, accents of gold foil would really make it shine.
Here is a pattern derived from the background of the bird illustration. I like the blues, but it needs an accent of some vibrant summer color. Maybe loosely in the flowers or in an offset effect. What do you guys think?
As promised I am staring away from the typical October feel. For my third inktober I wanted to do something more vintage that would work with textiles, rather than gifting. I absolutely love the blue-green in the leaves right now, so you will probably see more like that soon. Opposed to my regular very clean linework, this is much more expressive and I like how it gives the flowers depth. What do you guys think?
I can see the pattern working on wallpapers as well.
Thank you for following my Inktober project. See you tomorrow for a print made for spring of 2018.
Last week I started a surface design class online to get some more experience and a better understanding of the market. The first week has mainly experimentation with mark making and seeking inspiration. It was been very insightful this far and I want to share some of the work that I have been doing with you guys.
Drawing the same object again and again in everything from 10 seconds to 3 minutes.
Exploring successful repeat patterns and deconstructing them to understand what shapes goes into the design and then exploring some sketching on my own.
Exploring sketching with different mediums and strong colors.
My favorite time a year is here! Happy 1st of December everyone 😀 I hope you all have a wonderful christmas month with lots of sweets, coziness and quality time with your friends and family! That is what it is really all about 🙂
Though it is October and the strawberries are long gone out of season, I could not help myself with this little hedge hock for one of my inktober drawings. I have wanted to draw a hedge hock for a while, but haven’t found a purpose for it. So here he is – let’s just say that he is enjoying a very warm and delayed autumn. He doesn’t care that it is October because he has his belly full of sweet berries (:
Inktober 4 2016 – The sweet delight of eating berries
I am currently working on an exciting project for a new client in Australia! Unfortunately I can’t share it until it is published in February 2017. In the mean time though, I sometimes have some time to continue working on my own coloring book. Here are some lovebirds in progress for my bird book 🙂
