It’s that time again! I’ll admit this one isn’t particularly inspired, but March is not exactly an inspired month in Maine. It’s rainy. It’s gray. It’s not particularly warm when you factor in 40 mph winds. I’ll have something more exciting to offer come April, I’m sure. Until then, here you go:
One popular custom request is scenes or portraits drawn from photos. Rachel of Koukla Mou Designs asked for a custom doodle based on a photo of her sitting in front of a pretty water landscape. These doodles are somewhat challenging for me because I’m obviously not a “realistic” illustrator, but I like to stay true to the original while maintaining my style. Rachel’s portrait came out really well, and working on it inspired me to try my hand at another landscape–more on that one later!
This is my first foray into selling digital products (that aren’t custom) and something of an experiment. I’ve purchased a few printable products on Etsy before with great success, so I thought, “Why not try downloadable doodles?”
I’ll be adding more of these to the newly minted Print-a-Doodles section of the shop over the next few days!
This is my first entry to Illustration Friday. *blushes and waves tentatively* I’ve watched TGIF from afar for a while now, but when I saw this week’s theme, “perspective,” I thought my favorite “sea” print was perfect:
Looking down on their world as they look up at yours.
Next week I’ll try my hand at something brand spankin’ new.
Soon to be added to the shop: this sweet numbers and fruits poster!
It took me longer than you’d think to decide which fruits would stay and which ones wouldn’t. I wanted a good color balance and a variety of shapes and sizes. Fruits that I doodled but did not make the cut: starfruit, grapefruit, pomegranate, raspberries and coconut!
