Hey All! Hopefully your weekend was fantastic. Mine was rather enjoyable as I took it easy, for the most part. I did sneak in some caricature drawing as our Etsy store has been selling caricatures like hot cakes. If you are looking for a fun gift for family or friends, check us out. I’m the busiest caricature artist on Etsy and am always excited to pick up more work. Our art starts at just $10!
Enough of the shill act 🙂 I’m not just here to sell art. Although I do appreciate paying my bills and eating food. I’m also here to share my passion of art. It’s what I do for fun, as well as a living. I’m still working on my own children’s book, Untitled 2019. As you may remember, last Friday, I posted a few color samples. I don’t want to give away the whole book, obviously, but a few pieces here and there won’t hurt. Here is another color sample of one of the main characters. Enjoy and until next time, so long everybody!
Happy Friday! As we end the week, I figured I would share with you some artwork from a current project. I’ve spent the past 5 years as a children’s book illustrator. It’s been great but I have always worked under someone else’s creative direction, be it a client or art director. As a side project, I’m currently working on my very own children’s book. Written and illustrated 100% by moi 🙂
I won’t delve too deep into the story other than to say it is about socks. Yep, socks. All of the art has been inked and I am in the coloring phase now. I’ve had the most practice as a colorist so this phase moves by pretty quickly. After this, I’ll begin the layout phase. I’m aiming for an adequate job. I feel many artists, and people in general, aim for perfection. Perfection doesn’t exist and it only slows things down. Obviously I want to do my best work but I’m not aiming for “perfect”. Anyhoo, enjoy your weekend and have a look at some color testing on this pile of socks. Until next time, so long everybody!
