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. 🙂
I’ve been meaning to make these cameras into prints since I originally drew them for my Vintage Camera WordPress theme, and finally got around to doing so last week. They’re square prints in multiple sizes — 5×5, 10×10, or 12×12 inches. You can find them 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.
I haven’t done much illustration lately, but I have been working quite a bit on WordPress themes! I recently created a new theme called Vintage Camera, which features my illustrations as part of the design:
I had fun drawing these! They’re in a slightly different style from my usual work… the hand-drawn style isn’t my strong suit but when I asked my not-as-photo-savvy husband what they looked like, he recognized them as cameras. I’ll call that a success. 🙂
