Design-Seeds is such a great place of color inspiration.
Sometimes I’m surprised by the combinations, but seeing the images has helped me with seeing color ideas/possibilities. It’s also opened up my willingness to play around.
When I saw this cupcake I thought of a neat challenge (plus a fun way to relax after creating a bunch of images). Try and recreate the item but, here’s the twist:
Only using the colors she pulled out.
Halfway through I thought it wouldn’t work, but in the end I think it turned out cute. I would have chosen darker colors personally, but it was a fun exercise!
What do you think: brighter colors or no black lines?
I thought I would be a writer. One of those that had imaginary friends and stayed up, typing, by the moon.
Yeah, that’s not me.
First I’m too talkative to last, and frankly my attention to a new idea doesn’t last 72,000 words. Usually.
But I thought my love of pen and paper was limited to writing LONG fiction books, until it hit me out of the blue — you can do other things with pen and paper!
It was so obvious I still want to hit myself.
But I didn’t really think about what I could do that until I made my Mom a Christmas present. It turned out so well that I thought, “Maybe I could do illustration.”
So my first book is coming out October 2013. And still can’t believe it, (I’m starting with self-publishing) but hopefully it will be a springboard to great things!
Who knows? After listening to this great interview with Lilla Rogers I realized that illustration is really just the tip of the iceberg. I never realized how many ares you could get into.
This will be the place will be part portfolio and part discovery. As I discover what works and doesn’t for me I hope you’ll do me the favor of telling me what you like, love, or aren’t crazy about that I create.
