Terrarium Phone Case

I’d been using one phone case for like 2 years (really cute, blue and white with birds), and it was looking kinda gross. The white in it had greyed out, and nothing I tried (alcohol, soap, Tide pen) would clean it. I decided I needed a new, clean case. So, I designed my own!

It started as just a sketch late one night. About a couple hours, concept to completed line work, just chilling out and listening to music. Decided to draw some cartoony terrariums networked together (but no rulers!)

Yes, it’s been drawn using my pillow for a table. Bed = most comfy place to draw.

I didn’t start out thinking “phone case” or I might have tried to get more even lines, but by the end I liked it:

So I scanned and colored it in Photoshop:

Terrariums in Pink

Cute! I happened to have coupons for Shutterfly, plus they were having a 40% off phone cases deal. It’s NOT worth it if you don’t have any coupons/discounts (e.g. the case I got – iPhone 5 with silicone casing for extra protection – would be $60 without them!), but with them it cost me about $20 including shipping.

The only challenge was that my drawing’s dimensions didn’t match a phone case’s dimensions. Lots of the drawing was cut off, but even to get what I did, I had to go back into Photoshop and add a large white border all around the image.

I’m pretty happy with it though! Plus, the pink color matches exactly with my purse. 🙂

I bought this white pen for the cat’s whiskers, but no matter what I did, it came out grey and watery. Oh well. Inktober Accomplished!!
