Nita’s custom request, 1-5… an end is in sight!

Getting a little anxious now, the page is filling up with color!

I know some other illustrators dont post many progressions, but I love love how it looks during the watercolor process. If this was my sketch to own I would be half tempted to leave in incomplete just for the interesting quality it lends : )

Saturday Portraiture

Today, being my favorite day, was supposed to be dedicated to sleeping into an absurd hour, and then lounging about all day without a care save for popping in now and then to choose which flavor of coffee I wanted to push through the Keurig.

However, the neighbors decided to bust out the old chainsaw and chop down a large tree in their backyard.. at 7:00 am.
Needless to say, my planned schedule got thrown for a loop. I ended up rolling out of bed early, feeling restless.

So I sat down to re-work a custom illustration request that had gotten put on hold from a few months ago. The thing is paid for and the wonderful girl has been super patient, and today was as good as any to focus some energy into sketching out her portrait.

Here’s how it went! Im pretty happy with how it turned out- Im liking the two in layout next to eachother. But my opinion is secondary, hopefully Donna is pleased as well!

Nita’s custom, 1-3!

I’ve been hunched over this for far too long! Im going to be dreaming in Burberry Prorsum & Zac Posen..

Nita’s custom request, fig 1!

Chipping away, one down 6 to go : )

Illustrations à la mode is headed to Australia!

Well at least I hope so some day : ) If not for the beaches and treacherous outback adventures, then at the very least to visit the Shane Dias hair salon and see this amazing framed illustration ensemble they created with a custom print sizing order:

 
I added these pictures to the Press page, and totally forgot to write it in!

This looks so gorgeous, Im very honored to have my work up in that fab salon. Thanks so much Jen for using my work!

Maybe someday I’ll pop in for a chip chop and some highlights!
