This is old, like made back in January old. I found the files when I was cleaning out my computer last night. The piece I painted was for my one of my good friends, Dan, because his birthday was coming up so his girlfriend and I plotted where I would paint this piece and record it but not upload it until she received the original illustration to give to him, etc. I….never really mailed it out (I actually still have it somewhere, it might be back in my house in Maryland), but it was mainly because I didn’t think it was successful BUT, I liked how the video turned out.
Like my Margot Tenenbaum recording, I would have scanned the final product for the end, but this just gives you another idea how I work with watercolor and ink. The recording isn’t anything fancy, I just have a make-shift tripod out of garden planters and sculpey clay with my Canon PowerShot G11 and iMovie. And please excuse the state my room was in at the time.
I’m planning on doing one with how I work digitally. I’ll probably work on it this weekend actually.
Also, I’ve been doing some watercolor work lately for a client of mine. Cute city girls who ride bicycles and shop at farmers markets.
I realize I posted this yesterday, but I wanted to make sure with my client, Petite Alma, if it would be okay if I posted any work like this on my blog or website. So, you don’t get the scanned version, only a small Instagrammed idea of what I’m doing.
Graphite and watercolor.
When in New York, you fall into trends easily.
Watercolor, ink, and acrylic. Fashionable males to come next!
PS: Sorry it’s been awhile. I have an entire list of things to work on so this should be getting updated more often like before.
What are you scared of the most?
I finally just took the time to draw something quick and easy for myself today. And I usually don’t like to work with type, so I tried.
Dry brush experiment with Lana Del Ray’s “Video Games”.
For class we had to interpret our take on Success VS Failure and I decided on the story of Icarus.
Watercolor and ink.
I created a type and image piece for They Draw & Cook based on my family’s almond cookie recipe. I’ve been wanting to do something like this for awhile, and I had to go through my mom’s recipes and see which ones she would let me share (though I’m rather surprised she let me share this one out of all of them).
When I get the chance, I’d like to do make more of these recipe art pieces because it also challenges me with composition and hand-drawn type! So you’re all welcome to make these some time :) I even made these for class.
They go great with tea (and/or coffe I’ve heard, but I don’t drink coffee)!
Because who doesn’t enjoy summer movies?（´∀｀）
I dug up these two gems from back when I was a fashion design major. Even though these are over a year old, I still really like them and it reflects my design aesthetic from that time period. I looked at science a lot when it came to design, this collection revolving around anatomy and I had another that used organometallic chemistry as inspiration.
You can even see how my drawing style has evolved! Plus, these pieces are from the class that inspired my change from fashion to illustration. Maybe I’ll look through some of my other old projects and post them, though most of my professors still have them for documentation.
Colored version of my last post. I’m pretty happy with it, but I have some other experimentation ideas in store that I’m excited to pursue.
