IF:Space

I saw an image similar to this a while ago and I had to do my own version for this week's Illustration!
I decided to put it in my Etsy store, along with prints of the ABC poster I made.
I'm thinking I want to do a couple more images like this because it was just so fun to do!

...XYZ

I started a project a couple of months ago by request of my sister-in-law to create an Alphabet display for her baby's room.
I finally finished up the project last night and wanted to share it with you!
I sketched the images over time, posting them on Instagram.
Then I created all the shapes I needed for the cut-outs in Illustrator. After cutting out all the pieces, I laid them out and glued them down. The original is hanging in my nephews room.



There is a print version available now for you to own at my Etsy store!
It was a long and tedious process, but this cute little guy was worth all that effort!

Mermaids like to read

I love drawing mermaids. My little sister and I used to spend our summer afternoons in our backyard pool, pretending we were human fishes...
Or we would just lay out in the sun and read. If we were really talented, we could have done both at the same time...underwater!

IF: Twisted

What's more twisted than a maze full of riddles that need to be solved in 13 hours or else the goblin king keeps your baby brother? And the goblin king is played by David Bowie!
I remember watching 'Labyrinth' as a kid. I thought it would be fun to draw Sarah in her costume from the ballroom scene. Gotta love the 80's!

IF: Prehistoric

I've been fascinated with dinosaurs since I first watched Jurassic Park in theaters as a kid. It probably did to me what Star Wars did to the kids of their generation. Mind blown.
I was amazed by the visual effects and in awe of how realistically the artists and engineers captured those incredible creatures. 
The kitchen scene still puts me on the edge of my seat!

IF: Exotic

Some animals, especially birds, are just so cool looking! I thought this one, the grey crowned crane (a native to Africa) would be fun to draw for this week's Illustration Friday topic!
