It’s been quiet from my end during 2018. A lot of things has passed, some easy, some hard. It has made me stronger for it. I am so happy and excited for 2019 – a year with so many creative and personal plans and goals ahead. I hope to share much of my creativity here with you and hopefully some personal accomplishments as well. This is my 2019 welcoming illustration. I hope you like it 🙂
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.
This month I have started the Make it in Design Course – Module 2! It is super exciting, as I am now developing real collections of surface patterns for licensing. This is something that I have been wanting to expand my career into for quite a while and I am very excited to finally get a chance to explore it further!
Here I am sharing my moldboard that I based my sketches and color choices on and below is the collection that I came up with. Let me know what you all think – I would love the feedback 🙂
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 🙂
It is crazy that October is almost at an end. It feels like I just started my inktober drawings yesterday and now Halloween is just around the corner! I am a bit behind but will catch up this week. I’m excited to have another inktober collection to show for this year. I have really enjoyed this medium. This is inktober 22 – A decor pattern with a cute little Hare.
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.
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 🙂
Yet another page from my new coloring book in progress. This is one of my favorites from the book so far. I just love drawing birds, and especially ones that are in mid air interacting with one another. How wonderful it must be to fly!
