Every few years I revise our illustrated “family portrait”, and this weekend I decided we were due for an update. Gwen is no longer a baby, we adopted a dog, and my hair is looking a lot less saturated these days (I still can’t bring myself to draw it white! Maybe in another four years…)
2015 family portrait
It’s fun to see how we’ve evolved. It’s only been seven years, but so much has happened in that time, it feels like ages!
Ellie is into fairies lately, so I thought I’d draw her a little woodland creature. Then I decided Gwen should have a fairy of her own, too, so I worked up a purple version with darker hair. I think I’ll make these into prints with the girls’ names at the bottom, and frame them to hang in their room.
A poster devoted to one of my favorite foods — eggs! More experiments with different design styles and typography.
Inspired by some of my favorite childhood toys — we had the house and the farm, and I remember playing with them for hours. These days I get to watch my kids play with the very same toys, except now they’re called “vintage” for some unfathomable reason. 🙂
Taking a slight departure from my usual style to try some new techniques and play. A poster I designed illustrating the proper composition of a sandwich. Delicious.
