Autumn Post Card (Part 3)

Finally done! Sadly it took me all fall to get to it. So look's like i'll have to hurry for winter and get that sent out before December. Oh the life of a freelancer. Thankfully this painting came out great and I really love everything about it. The minus is most of my work is disappointing compared. So I got my list of things people look for in a Children's Illustrator portfolio and i'm well on my way to accomplishing it. Oh and later this month Im going to start a competition to try and win a pair of holiday earrings I made. I may show a painting such as this and make people guess how many techniques were used and in what order. So keep that in mind when you study this and the other steps i've shown earlier. ;)

Computer Rant

Yes, yes there will be no art work for today. I had a very crazy afternoon the day before. I made a genius appointment for my apple thinking there were issues from the battery. After running a few tests and attempting to look through the hard drive; my computer went threw a massive breakdown of giant red flashing failures. Turns out the hard drive was glitching and refusing to do any tests. To be fair this situation was my fault. A few months back I dropped it on a busy street in providence in a rainstorm. So now the bottom side with the hard drive in it is bent metal.

The good news was my warranty covered it and now my computer is wicked fast an awesome. All my files were transferred over by my old mac and most programs are re-downloaded. Now the issue is cs5. My old one was a download so I may have to look for my cs3 cd's and just deal with an older version till I figure something out. I can't help but think they put a new personality into the dead shell of my computer. Its very sad...and so today isn't just a rant heres a photo of adorable cookie cutters for some winter projects.

Moust-ache Chinese Food

Lately I have been so distracted from all the mini projects I have going on. So today's post is a bit random. It started with the weekly word for Illustration Friday and somehow developed into chinese food accessories.

Autumn Post Card (part 2)

Today's post is the next step in my halloween post card process. It's taking a bit long due to other projects and realizing im a bit rusty in my painting and drawing skills. To see the post card sketch go check out Part 1. Part 2 is the finished painting but the inside of all the frames are going to be collaged and digitally added for Part 3. You can see why that would take a bit of time. Along with it I have some painting practice. Ive noticed i'm incredibly rusty in my skills so I will start up painting food again along with more observation drawings.
