I did this in the Sketchbook Pro ipad app. It’s just a thing.
What is up, my fellow netizens? It’s snowy ’round these parts.
I’m not all too fond of snow. However, it does give me an excuse to stay inside and work.
This is an illustration I’ve been working on for the last few days. We have skulls. We have poppies.
I wanted the poppies to have a feel close to old-timey botanical illustrations. They don’t have that level of detail, of course, and I’ve taken some artistic license with the placement and shape of the leaves, etc.
I’ve been busy setting up the Zazzle store-gallery thing, which has been fun. I keep trying to move on to new projects, but seeing my artwork on all of this stuff is cool, even if it is in a virtual setting! It’s like a toy.
Check this out. This is an older design of mine, inspired by absinthe. I put it on some playing cards, and I can even change the color of the kings and queens etc to match the graphic.
How cool is that? They have all kinds of products I can slap my drawings onto. Magnets, plates, mugs, towels, shirts, teapots, decorative boxes, wrapping paper, cards, lamps. Yes, lamps. The list goes on and on. It’s crazy. I’m going to have to start limiting my time on there or I’ll never draw anything new.
Hey there! If you’ve been here before, you may notice the blog has gotten a bit of a makeover. It’s all part of me trying to get my act together.
There is a new “Shop” tab at the top. I removed the portfolio pages for now because I want to create one page for the portfolio. Basically, I did a way with a bunch of the clutter. I like this much better. It’s simpler.
I have new stuff in my zazzle gallery, which I’ve actually had and neglected for quite some time. It’s HERE. I haven’t quite set everything up yet, but there’s stuff to look at in there now, and that is a step in the right direction, yes? Yes.
Hello, Friday! It’s a snowy Friday here. School is canceled. The ducks are still paddling away on the pond. Their tolerance for cold is much better than mine!
I’ve been hard at work putting together some new pieces for the shop. They aren’t available yet, but they will be very soon. Here’s one of them.
