Fashion Illustration 2: Mermaid Gown

After creating The Red Gown, I was inspired to create another fashion illustration. As the temperatures warmed up, I was inspired to create a beach-themed look.

Looking back at some of my prints, I realized that a mermaid-inspired look was perfect for this theme!

This is what evolved:

Caturday: Printed Cards

Hello! Hope everyone is having a good weekend. For this Caturday, I created hand-printed cards with my original cat stamp. They were printed on heavy-weight cardstock:

Here is the original stamp. It was so much fun to make!

Creative Tuesdays: Candy

The newest Creative Tuesdays theme is "candy." I had made a set of 16 abstracts, as previously introduced in my posts Creative Tuesdays: Monogram and Illustration Friday: Liquid.

At the time I made this abstract, I was thinking of the patterns and glossy textures you might see on a rainbow lollipop. Then, I added a varnish to give it that "juicy" look:

I'm looking forward to seeing all the candy and sweets inspired art.

Happy Illustrating!
