This is a revised version of the hand drawn type piece I posted last week. I decided to remove 'bird' since I have clearly depicted an illustration of a bird already. I may try designing different versions of this bird, and possibly have him interact with the type more. Print patterns other than paisley (like damask, for example) I think could also be interesting for a type piece...possibly a logo for a fabric or clothing store? My next idea is to have type or a phrase involving the four seasons, with 1-2 animals for each.

I am interested in learning more about graphic design, specifically graphic design that has more of a "hand drawn" look. I would like to begin to incorporate logos and/or hand drawn type into my existing and new illustration work. These are just some thumbnail sketches inspired by a local busines in town:

My Stir illustration (I'm thinking if calling it something else now) drawing and underpainting on board. The illustration is now 12x16." I have named my character Sue. For future pieces I plan to feature her with other characters (including animals)! I am in the process of working out the color and I plan to have the finished piece up soon, with hopefully more work along the way too!

A pencil sketch for this week's IF, which is Toy. I am in the middle of working on a series of self-promotional pieces for my illustration career, and this will be one of them. I had many ideas for Toy (would have liked to do all of them!) I decided on a tea party with stuffed animals. I may do the other Toy ideas or have a combination of them in a piece somehow...
I hope to have color illustrations again soon for future IFs! :-)
