Three Little Pigs, reboot

So, I have been playing around on Skillshare (highly recommend) and have been loving the camaraderie of being “in class” again. This was for a class with the great Lisa Congdon.  The project was to respond to an imaginary art director’s email and then illustrate a creative brief she sent.  In a nutshell, it was to reinterpret a well known fairy tale.  I think the houses need a little something, but I am pretty satisfied with this.

 

Learning, learning and a pillow fight!

Business of Art, Le Grand Portefeuille

I thought it would be fun to design some cushions for the OhhDeer.com Pillow Fight.  You can enter as many time as you want until November 6th.

For this one, I played around and used Illustrator, just for a change. I took a fun course on Skillshare, and forced myself to use Illustrator for the final project (since the demo was in Illustrator.) I think I am going to be exploring this avenue…watch this space! haha

Mash the cushion to vote. 🙂

And here is a fun cat, created with charcoal and finished in Photoshop.

Smoosh your mouse into this cushion to vote. 😀

If you have time, I would love your support!  Just click on the pillow image and you will be taken to a page where you can “like” and “tweet” or even purchase a cushion.  Any of those things help me to win a spot as an Ohh Deer artist.  Thanks!

This was a quick night time scribble followed by a quick lunch time painting.  I took the advice of TV Kapherr over at Cats at the Bar and borrowed one of the cats’ pictures as a feline model.  I know I can do better…the model was a lot cuter in the picture than in my painting!  Ah well, art is about patience and practice.  Have a great weekend!

Thank you again for your support.

Thank you all for supporting me by voting for the pelican.  Unfortunately, my journey in this particular contest has ended.  I learned a lot, and I am currently taking what I learned in order to solidify my brand and beef up my portfolio with some new concepts.  And I got two new, finished pieces out of this journey.

For those of you who asked, the Pelican is now available as a print and a t-shirt in the Store, and there is a FREE Shipping Special going on until the end of the day.  Lil’ Terrarium will be available soon.  I will, as usual, keep you posted!

I am your forever grateful Lemon.
