This guy was so 90s punk, I just had to draw him. Sort of proud of that plaid shirt even though up close it’s sloppy.

Wedding Dress

19 01 2016

My BFF is getting married in a few months and asked me to paint her wedding dress in the style of an artist she likes who does simple watercolor front-few dress paintings like the dress is on a mannequin with blues/grays dappled around the dress. Completely not my style or choice of subject matter, but it is my BFF, so…

Ugh. My terrible scanner doing a blurry bad job of it. Love the little shadow wrinkle it added in the middle thanks to the scanner bed being too small for the paper (9×12).

Here’s a wrinkle-less phone shot:

Terrarium Phone Case

24 11 2015

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. 🙂

So I’m really proud that I actually finished all my Inktober drawings in the month of October! …Just ran out of time to post them, so here are the rest of them from that last week in October:

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!!

Cityscapes

27 10 2015

2 silly Inktobers. Always used to draw towns/hotels/amusement park designs that never made architectural sense as a kid. Decided to see if it was still fun.
