I did this little pattern for the 3×3 Challenge. The Theme was on the farm and I had a lot of fun with this one.
I started by randomly drawing chickens in my sketchbook. When I had a page I scanned the page into my computer, then I air dropped it to my iPad. From there, I tweaked some chickens, removed the ones that were so so, and added a few embellishments,
I used one of the suggested color palettes, which something I normally don’t do, but I figured it would make trying to choose colors less stressful. LOL I only had to add two colors that I thought would work better. I hope you enjoy this as much as I had fun doing it.
Also, a warning this evening. There are some really mean people in this world and it is a shame that some of these bad people have to make life miserable for others. All I have to say about that is Karma is a bitch and what you do to others will come back at you much, much worse. For the people who hacked my daughter’s Instagram account, Karma will find you. My daughter is a good sweet person and didn’t deserve that. WHAT YOU DO TO OTHERS WILL ALWAYS COME BACK TO YOU.
Here is the message that she received from someone she knew who was hacked as well. They sent the same one to me and my family from my daughter’s account. Beware of people DM’ing you with a link or something like this. Be careful out there, dear followers.
This is a portfolio assignment in the course by Mike Lowery, “Getting Paid to Draw.” The Assignment was to create icons for a category of our choice. I chose baking since it is a commonly used illustration and is part of the 3X3 Illustration challenge. (In essence, I am killing two proverbial birds with one stone.)
I like doing Shannon McNab’s design challenges. This is last Friday’s submission but my posts are a little backed up right now from last month’s St Patrick’s Sketchbook. I am also working on ideas for Easter which should start on April 1.
The Challenge for Week 1 was Folksy Florals are something folk arty so being born a Pennsylvanian, the first idea that popped into my head was Amish hexes so I incorporated some flowers I did in one sketchbook and one of the birds from last month to come up with this submission.
I have been updating some of my work digitally. This was always one of my favorites that I did several years ago and I decided to give it a digital facelift. I purchased the bouquet in the pumpkin during a festival in Cape May and did the sketch immediately after I took it home. I thought it was such a great idea. I would never have thought to use a pumpkin for a “vase.” I don’t know what the blue flowers are but I always wanted to grow them. There used to be a U-pick place in West Cape May where you could cut your own flowers. Don’t know if it is still there.
