Couple of birds inspired by my trip back home to Florida last April.
In March I worked with ClassDojo on a set of illustrated frames to use in instagram posts, print, story announcement and more. They objective was to make the illustrations eye-catching while leaving enough room for text. "They can be abstract, funky, weird as long as they're monstery."
Something that's been talked about at ClassDojo is continuously expanding their monster universe. I decided to contribute by introducing monster plants.
A geometric monster frame with various ClassDojo characters hidden within.
Weekend drawing of some butterflies fluttering around a mushroom patch. I used the butterfly wings as a place to experiment with patterns and found drawing all the little circles to be very meditative. This is practice for an upcoming book about butterflies I'll be illustrating later this year.
Exploring the possibilities of a single tear drop. My process started with a couple dozen thumbnail sketches. My teardrop is kind of all over the place. It appears sideways as a blindfold and upside down as a hot air balloon. As I refine my drawings I eliminated any oddly positioned teardrops and got down to my best set. My favorite by far is the footprint.
To celebrate National Coffee Day I made a nice cup of black coffee with my aero press and then made this thing in Illustrator.
I was commissioned last week to create this vector illustration of client's home in Washington DC. I love illustrating in this flat style but it came with a few challenges for this home. Getting the front-left of the building to look rounded was difficult but I finally accomplished the effect. I added texture by applying a outlined brick pattern I made to portions of the building and then inverting it for other areas.
