Illustration Work

Hey guys!

I told you I'd be back soon! I've put the polymer clay jewellery making on the back burner and have wanted to concentrate on drawing and illustrating more. I've always wanted to do more stationery work but have put it off as it does require a lot more work than the polymer clay jewellery (and with a full-time job, it's hard to find the time!) But I LOVE drawing and illustrating too much to avoid NOT doing it any longer.

This year I intend to do more illustration work and bring it more to my store. I love how it looks and also that people are able to use them (in all different kinds of ways). I plan to make writing sets, notecards, envelopes, lists, planners, party favours, stickers, prints etc with them! We'll see how it goes.

So here is the beginning of the first project. The 3 bears. So far I have been experimenting my illustration style on Papa bear. The one on the left has no inking and is purely on shading while the right has a defined black ink outline. I have asked everyone around me which they prefer and so far it's 50/50! So I have an important question to ask all of you... which do you prefer?

pencil shavings and smudges,

Left - ink free ... it has lovely tones and the inking just overwhelms the subtlety of your gorgeous painting :) ...
