Seattle

It feels like I only go into the city when we have visitors, but we did, and I did.  Of course we had to go to Pike Market and Seattle Center (on the monorail! – it’s the best way!)

Final shot.  I have a thing for amusing signs and this guy looks like there’s just been some sort of Urgent Diaper Emergency.

Blue Sun Art

I’m going to need a business card and a label template for 1oz soap samples, which means it’s time to play with logos.

This is fun, although I’m glad I don’t have to try to please anyone else with my designs.  I am going for an Art Deco look.

Sneaky fox

I’ve been trying to come up with a very stylized fox to fit with the tree & owl and so far that’s not been working out so great.  I may need to go back to some sort of ancient technology like paper and pencil to get the sketch done first!

Instead I made another color-block fox.  This time I tried to use simpler lines, but I may need to ‘cartoonify’ him even more to get him to fit the scene.  Still, I like him.

Fox

This is a vector tracing/coloring of a photograph, with some creative embellishments.  I’m not 100% happy with the colors or how I split them up, but it came out, overall, better than I expected.

I thought my trees could use some foxes.  This one is probably a bit too realistic in shape to go with that, but I will modify it to fit the tone as I get better.

A Forest in the Making

I made another tree with a more oak-tree shape than my first. The ferns are present, plus a few of the little ferns that grow on the trunks of trees in the rainforest.  This oak had a large horizontal branch that needed some owls.

 

The first owls were based off a movie – but I wanted to draw my own version this time.   As it turned out the cartoon owls looked the way they did for a good reason: this is just what owls look like.  My own owls are very similar. If I change anything it will to make the eye edges more distinct from the white face and perhaps to make the feet more fuzzy.
