I’ve been working myself to the bone this week at my drafting table – or, more aptly – down to the stubs!
But, I’ve loved every minute of the work I’ve done (which includes 2 custom illustrations, 5 calendar illustrations and a custom print job)! In fact, although my initial plan for tonight was to pop in a movie and plop myself onto the couch with a big bowl of popcorn, I’m feeling some creative inspiration coming on so I think I’ll make the most of it.
But, first, here’s a sneak peak at a portion of yet another illustration for the 2015 Joana Miranda Studio Calendar:
And a photo of a custom illustration I created as a birthday gift for one of my friends:
Now, off to sharpen those pencil (stubs)…
I worked on a new illustration today and was pleased with some elements, though not so pleased with others. Since I don’t usually include men in my illustrations, I found myself struggling a bit with the expression on this one. For the redo – yes, I’m planning to redo the illustration tomorrow – I’ve already enlisted my husband’s help with posing. The color scheme also needs a bit of tweaking, but I’m not going to give away what I plan to do.
Hope you’ll stop back again soon to see my progress!
June is a BIG birthday month in my family. Not only do we have quite a few June birthdays, but we also have several people with birthdays on the exact SAME day. So, I guess it’s not really surprising that I’ve been working on a new birthday illustration at my drafting table. Of course, I’ve also been doing some birthday gift shopping, too. But, believe it or not, I can still keep some things a secret.
