So after finishing numbers & fruits and numbers & candy, it was only a matter of time before I tried my hand at something healthier–vegetables!
Once again, I spent a long time deliberating exactly which veggies would make the cut (teehee.) Potatoes and onions fell by the wayside; the former were not visually stunning (although they’re one of my favorite foods) and my drawings of the latter were barely decipherable. Summer squash was a close second to pumpkins, but pumpkins won out for being more easily identifiable. I fussed over the cabbages in row 5 for a long time, and I’m still not certain they won’t be mistaken for Brussels sprouts, but hey, what can you do? And yes, I realize tomatoes are technically a fruit, not a veggie. Just play along. There’s a reason I’m not a scientific illustrator. 😉
You’ll soon find this poster in the Calobee Doodles shop!
My first idea for the numbers & fruits counting poster was intended to be numbers & candy, but somewhere along the line I decided fruits would be better suited to the design. The other night I thought I’d try going back to the original idea, and this came together quickly. This is the poster for those of you who’d prefer something sweet but a little more “refined.” 😉
A quick, last-minute entry into this week’s Illustration Friday! I’ve been busy with custom orders and photography, but I wanted to get something out there. This cute little butterfly will soon be up in the shop as a print-a-doodle.
So, I enjoyed working on the “rescue” poster so much, I thought I’d try a similar illustration with a train. I like using basic shapes and colors to create a simple, yet bold design, and it’s a challenge to get the point across without cluttering up the illustration with too much detail. I’m not quite there with this one… the colors need work, but otherwise I think it will make a nice addition to the shop. I don’t know whether it will be a print or a print-a-doodle yet.
Once again, a literal approach to the theme du jour, except this time I’m quite happy with it. This will soon be a 12×36 poster in the shop!
