In case you were craving more donut themed art – consider yourself satiated (this time with 80% more magic).
Seriously… I might be obsessed. That’s okay, right? Here are a few more donut inspired artworks. I’m working on a few more, so I’ll probably add to this post. There is no such thing as too many donuts, right?
Don’t forget the donut chart! Available for purchase here.
Who doesn’t love colorful dessert foods frolicking the snow? I know I’m a big fan! I’ve designed so many cards for clients and other people this year that I wanted to take some time to do something custom for myself. I had a lot of fun illustrating my submission for Lilla Rogers ‘Global Talent Search’ this Summer, and although I didn’t make it very far (or anywhere at all), I wanted to continue with the characters I developed for my journal!
Below are my sketches for this project. First loose in my sketchbook, and then a tighter sketch in Photoshop.
If anyone is interested in commissioning any cards, custom stationery, or save the date design please feel free to reach out!
Over the summer I was asked to illustrated a save the date postcard for Californian couple Joe and Sin. With their wedding reception being held in a garden, they wanted to play with the idea of a backyard picnic for their postcard, focusing mainly on floral elements. With the reference and art samples they gave me, I came up with a few sketches and color ways for them to choose from.
After a few emails back and forth we made the right decision for the couple, and below is their final postcard illustration!
Wondering what your baby (or dog) should rock this October? Check out these little cuties I designed with my team! We wanted some cute halloween costumes that were fun, but also wearable and comfy for the little ones. You can find them online or at your local Target. Look for these guys and two others on an end-cap in your baby section!
Working on a new project that may or may not include some illustrations inspired by Staffordshire Pottery…
First things first, I found this picture of a cute pup with all three of my Montessori Books! My newest release through Abrams Appleseed imprint is Montessori Shape work. It will be released August 6th – pre-orders are available on Amazon now BTW. But seriously, how cute is that dog?!
Here’s a little snapshot of the cover, and two of the interior images! I bet you can’t guess which shapes are represented. Also – Pizza is the best circle (oh, shoot, I guess I gave away one of the answers).
This weekend Llew and I took a trip to the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum! It was a beautiful day to wander around the Arboretum’s endless gardens and check out whatever plants were in bloom. They had a rose garden, and herb garden, we took a stroll around a bog, and even got to see some veggies in full bloom. It was also a great trip to collect some photo reference (we all know how much I enjoy drawing flowers)! Here are a few of my shots, I’m not much of a photographer, but I thought these were good shots!
I hope everyone else had a good weekend!
I’m so bad at posting projects, so I’m going to try my best to share some of the things I’ve been working on. These are a few older projects I did over the winter for AARP Magazine. AARP has always been super fun to work for – these spot illustrations appeared on their website, and in print (I believe) as contest advertisements. They were super fun to work on, and a fun excuse to get to do some lettering!
