I've been trying to push myself in my sketchbook this past week with my lettering...trying to get out of my "safe place" (a style of script I've gotten stuck with).
My new sketchbook has become a place for exploring new types of lettering. Here's a little peek at the first few pages...
Very excited to have today "off" - going on a day trip with my hubby for a story he's writing. Things have been pretty busy in the studio this month (mainly due to my inability to not overbook myself) so it will be a nice day out! (although, at the moment, it's 12 degrees...)
Hoorah! I just finished a new, rather large painting and it felt so good to be back behind the easel. I enjoy all the other projects I've been doing these days (illustrations, lettering, invitation design, etc) but freely painting what my heart desires is my true love.
This piece evolved quite a bit as it went along, mainly because I would work on it one day and not be able to come back to it for a week or so and that went on for over a month. But yesterday, I had a surge of inspiration and everything came together.
Here she is:
And some details
I'll be showing my work in a local gallery/tattoo shop in February, so I'm excited to have a new piece done :)
