Tropical vibes coming your way!
Hey guys! I have been dreaming of summer days lately, so I created these 2 watercolor tropical leaf patterns. I think they turned out pretty nice!
I am looking forward to my upcoming trip to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, which is less than 1 month away and I couldn’t be more excited to escape the gloomy weather here in Vancouver (we’ve actually gotten a lot of snow this winter which is unusual here). I feel like we’ve had a real Canadian winter for once, but I’m tired of it! Take me to the beach!
In my mind at least I can escape with these bright patterns…
I hope these patterns make you feel a bit warmer today! Feel free to let me know what you think about them in the comments below. Make sure you follow my blog so you don’t miss my next post!
Have a great week.
I made this mermaid inspired pattern to share with you all today!
For this piece I painted a freestyle pattern using the watercolour set I got for Christmas.
I think this design turned out really nicely and it is very versatile. It still retains its hand-painted look even after being scanned and digitally manipulated. I wonder how it will look when printed on the real life items.
I really like this colour combination. I wonder if I should also submit the image “flipped” (upside down) so it looks more like actual scales. What do you guys think?
There will be some more patterns made from my watercolour paintings coming soon so make sure to follow my blog so you don’t miss them!
Cheers, and thanks for stopping by.
I created a new collage piece to share with you all today, Galaxy Yin Yang!
I made several of these tangle style yin yang designs a while ago and have been re-purposing them in various ways ever since. I thought this time that it might look cool layered over a galaxy background!
I hope you guys like it, let me know what you think by leaving a comment below!
Hopefully I will have some time to work on new designs this weekend, these past few weeks have been a bit crazy, but stay tuned and make sure you follow my blog so you don’t miss my next post!
Have a great week everyone.
This new design actually took me several months of fiddling around with it before I was finally happy enough to call it finished!
The title is pretty self-explanatory, it’s a drawing of a howling wolf in front of the moon which I drew as a mandala and filled in with blue and yellow hues.
I created this by hand drawing the outlines first, then scanning it and filling it in with Photoshop and Illustrator.
I struggled the most with the wolf, but I think it turned out in the end.
I think this design looks best on a dark blue background, but with some products you can choose a different background colour, if desired.
After so much back and forth with this design, I’m finally happy with how it turned out and had a lot of fun with colouring in the mandala especially.
What do you guys think of my wolf? Let me know by leaving a comment below!
Cheers from Portland this week on a work trip!
I have a new design to share with you all this week, I decided to make my own version of the “Pug Life” trend I have been seeing around!
This was created using the watercolour paintings I did a few weeks back.
I hope you like it, feel free to leave a comment below!
I apologize for the super brief post this week, I have a lot going on with work etc.
Catch you all later!
