I have been working on this tribal design for 2017 Chinese New year (coming up this weekend!) and this year is the year of the rooster, hence the rooster subject matter 😀 I am super excited about this new technique that I just learned. I have been watching tutorials on lynda.com on original tribal illustration and this is my first go at it. I love how graphic it is and how all the shapes connect with one another. If times permits I would love to turn this into a series. Perhaps not all the Chinese horoscopes, but it is a good place to start. It is something a little bit different from my normal style, but I don’t think it diverts enough to not work with my portfolio. Feel free to reach out and let me know what you think and if you have any ideas for subject matters that would look awesome with this tribal style!
I have started a new little mini series of small simple and adorable garden animals for part of this years inktober series. I am so glad I gave watercolors a chance because this month has been so much fun, experimenting with new mediums and subject matters.
Halloween is approaching rapidly and spooky things are staring to show up all around in stores and in town. For inktober 11th I did a purple haunted house for the occasion. I can’t wait to see all the beautiful Halloween decorations my city is preparing 😀
A recently acquired a fascination with mushrooms. I find them so beautiful in their own unique way. They are so colorful and decorate the forest immensely in the autumn months. They look powerful but they are eminently soft and fragile at the same time and can be destroyed by almost anything. Here is a small illustration of a couple of different mushrooms for my 6th inktober drawing. Only the smallest animals can climb them without ruining them. Here’s a small snail on a big adventure.
