I did these sketches for what was maybe going to be a stationary set, but it didn't pan out. What a bummer. I hate it when that happens.
The idea was that they would be black line art on white paper, and they would come with a little watercolor set and you could color them yourself.
As far as the designs go, I was just having fun, really. They are marker and pencil,sketches and they're not the best drawings, but they give you a pretty good idea. I probably would have fancied them up with a brush pen if they it had been a go. Brush pens are fun things.
Things I like: flowers, fancy ladies, beautiful desserts, and the 18th century fashion. If you couldn't tell.
And then there was this weirdo one withe the octopus hair thrown in.
I like markers a lot, even though my marker technique (if there is such a thing in the case of markers) is pretty 'whatever'.
Frustrating days lately, you guys. Really stupidly tough!! I can't seem to get any projects off the ground, for reasons that are utterly mystifying (to me at least). I don't wanna bitch out on my blog, because that's sort of yucky, but then again why not? It's part of the deal when you're an artist that depends on other folks/institutions to put your work out there. Your s#*% gets rejected sometimes!
Anyway. On to the next!
