So versatile, and quite trendy as a home decor item right now, a series of canning jars in different states of use — just playing with variations on a theme. I like how this came together. It’s also available in the Calobee Doodles Etsy shop as a print!
One of the things I want to work on this year is doodling more, just for fun, so hopefully you’ll see more and more new things popping up here! I made this little cupcakes poster over the weekend, and you can find it (along with a bunch of other new prints) in my Etsy shop.
I was recently asked to design a premium theme for WordPress.com and part of doing so involved illustrating these cuties. I went with a food-themed design (and you all know how much I enjoy drawing food, if the Portfolio section of this website is any indication) and four different color schemes. It’s hard to pick a personal favorite, but I’m partial to the citrus one.
A returning customer of mine is marketing a new product, and they asked if I would help with the logo design. I can hardly take credit for anything other than the mechanics of this one, as they came to me with several proposed ideas, all sketched out, and described in great detail how they wanted it to look. We tried a couple minor variations on this theme but eventually they settled on the original concept. Although I do enjoy brainstorming with my clients to get just the right look, and it’s certainly fun to be creative, sometimes it’s refreshing when someone else has already done the research and considered the concepts beforehand, and all I have to do is draw the idea into being!
I’m cheating and using an existing design for this week’s Illustration Friday theme, transportation. This personalized kids’ banner I designed a while back came to mind immediately. On a personal note, my daughter has a sudden fascination with the “cool bus” (school bus), to the point where I may need to print one of these posters with her name for her birthday!
