This wonderful and challenging mini-series was commissioned by a family friend for their newborn baby’s nursery. After seeing my comic book teddy bears, and wanting to have a elephant theme for little Logan, they asked if it was possible for me to make Star Wars Elephants. Well, I certainly hadn’t tried before, and a few sketches later, we decided I was more than happy to accept the challenge!
Three months later, these watercolored little cuties are home with their baby to raise that little guy up right!
I’m toying with doing a few more of these, just because, though I’ll have these prints available in my Etsy shop soon, so keep your eyes peeled.
Each of these paintings is 11 x 8.5 inches, inked using Dr. PH. Martin’s Black Star Matte India Ink and Dr. PH. Martin’s HYDRUS Watercolor sets 1 and 2.
Finally time for the chilling of the seasons.
Can you tell I’m ready for winter?
It’s been awhile since I’ve posted anything, and I’m sorry for that! I’m working my hardest to keep projects running, and I haven’t done much work that isn’t related to the webcomic I’ve started up or art inspired by fandoms I’ve fallen into. Still, my portfolio needs some work, so it’s high time I got going on some new pieces to keep that up to date and hopefully get some work coming my way. 🙂
Here’s the start of a hopefully productive winter season!
Such a contently happy little bunny!
This was the very first card I designed when considering doing this cute little series. Originally, the bunny was going to be a 3D element to the card, but I’m beginning to like it more as a flat piece. I won’t make my decision until I’ve mocked up both options. 🙂
Only two more left to go! Let me know what you think!
The second of my Thank You card series. Still not quite happy with it, but happy enough! 🙂 Enjoy.
Once I have these mocked up, I’ll post more pictures so you can see the 3D elements– If I go with those.
Sometimes, it’s hard to like something after you’ve worked at it over and over again. Not the case this time. While I may still tweak the colors on the rabbit itself, this Thank You Card is complete. 🙂 Still have more tweaking on another one before it comes up and the following three should be coming soon, too!
I must say, however, that my favorite part of designing these cards has become the little treat I give myself at the end. Anyone who’s received one of my cards or seen them in person may know already, but I mark all of my cards one the back with my bunny and name. What’s a treat about that, you ask? It’s that every one of them is different. Yes, the bunny is the same, but once I finish an illustrated front, I like to tie it into the back in some small way. Look for it next time– It always makes me smile, too. 🙂
Stay tuned, there’s more to come!
Don Quixote meets Windrose Armoury in celebration of their 20th Anniversary!
I created a handful of concepts for them to take a look at once the illustration was complete, including posters and a banner for their website.
Congratulations, Mom and Dad, on 20 years of hard work and good memories. 🙂
Another excuse to make cute cards has presented itself. Viola! Because you’re never too old to make valentines…
