Little Pup

Back from a visit home. I'm still getting back into the swing of things. Vacation always throws me out of whack for a while after. Tonight I just played around to get myself back into action. This cute yellow dog, Bee, on a sunny day hike is what came out.

I hope you have a wonderful week!

Latin Beats for Kids Illustration

(sorry for the copyright but a girl's got to try and protect her art, right?)

Something new to share! I had so much fun working on this illustration last week. After meeting with my boss to discuss the art direction I was set free to do what I wanted. Thankfully the client loved it. Woohoo and phew! :)

I thought I would share a bit of my process for jobs like this. I started with a few thumbnails to rough out my concept (sorry, I forgot to scan the other rough to show). My roughs are always so tiny. The image above is the thumbnail I chose to work from for the final piece, it's about 2" x 2". I always do a little research for some inspiration/education, plug in my earphones and hunch over the little square and let blossoming ideas pour out. Then a quick scan and I begin the digital drawing and coloring. Then "Ta-Da!" I got a nice illustration to be proud of.

Wall Art for my Niece

I've been busy creating sweet designs for my niece who is having a baby girl in November. The baby shower is in 2 weeks and I am so excited to see her and throw a bash of a shower :) The theme is butterflies and the colors are brown, pink and green. Love it! It has been a blast to create all the elements. I'll post the invitation and toppers in the next few days.
