I was looking through some of my older blog posts and I realized a while back I meant to post my sketchbook from the Sketchbook Project 2011. My sketchbook is also on the Art House website. I got pretty busy towards the end of winter with my freelance client but now I am going through a bit of a quiet period so I thought I would put some scans up this time! Soon I will be working on the sketchbook for the 2012 show. Unfortunately I am missing pages 15 and 16 from my files, but you can see those pages here:
For today I have some more greeting card design process work. Here are three shamrocks I came up with. I may draw a fourth one. My idea is to have a repeat design with these on the front of the card and each shamrock will be pointing in a different direction. Color palette will most likely be monochromatic, with different shades of green.
I'm currently working on a series of new greeting card illustrations. I plan to cover many familar holidays and also Everyday occasions (including birthdays, wedding, baby, get well, etc.). I decided to start with St. Patrick's Day and I have a couple ideas in mind. This is a study I worked on over the weekend...just a little teaser: More to come...
I have decided to participate in the Sketchbook Project again this year. A fellow illustrator and I have decided to combine our talents into this sketchbook and the theme we chose is This is a Sketchbook. We don't have much to show yet but I am looking forward to seeing what turns out when we combine our styles! I felt that with this particular theme anything goes! Art House has also uploaded my entire sketchbook to their site from the Sketchbook Project 2011. Please check out my pages and leave a comment! Lastly, I now have a Twitter button on my blog. I plan to create a custom one because they are so much nicer and more personal I feel than the default buttons. In addition, I feel that it will show my illustration style more and my web design experience a little bit. I am also thinking of creating a custom Facebook button too. Of course, I will post WIP with both buttons! :-)
