I’ve been meaning on learning how to make repetitive patterns in Illustrator for a long time, but finally gave it a crack today (inspired by the 52 Project). Now it isn’t perfect, but this mythological creatures pattern was fun to make (spot the Yeti) and I’m inspired to make more of them!
I recently downloaded a trial of Sketchbook Pro – I like the idea of sketching digitally, but not the reality! I think I’ll be sticking with pencil and occasionally Photoshop for now.. But anyways, here is my addition for this week’s challenge – tree.
I’m a bit late to the party, but Ive finally got my act together (read: my baby is finally starting to settle into a few hours of daycare a week!) to join the 52 Week Challenge set up by Tania McCartney. Anyone can join in – a topic a week, and a good way to brush up (or out) on skills long forgotten – e.g. I think the last time I did cross hatching was in high school (this weeks topic). He is a little rough, but here is my banjo bear contribution…
I’ve had a few posts about Big Hearted Business… I like the idea that they are helping people with the important business of “doing what you love, making money and changing the world.” Their next conference is on soon and they are giving away some scholarships, and I (somewhat nervously) have made a video to join the applicants!
You can vote for them here, closing tonight, but also fun and inspiring to see what drives others – a collection of creative people sharing their work.
Valentines isn’t for everyone (and not really for my boy and I either) but I thought it was a great time to share a lovely project I’ve worked on this past week.
Judith and Ron are celebrating their 63rd wedding anniversary soon, and to celebrate I worked with Judith on a portrait of them from the past and the present. They “still have a great fun time together” and you could see their long, strong love in their photos.
