If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it a hundred times: “If it’s going to be cold and grey, the least it could do is snow!” Well this has been one of the snowiest weeks I can ever remember, and I’ve been trying to soak up every second of it! Snow days have been particularly welcome because I’ve been working on a couple projects for work that require lots of illustrating. Truth be told, it is much easier for me to make pretty things from my home studio with it’s perfect light, a cup of coffee, and Dexter. So on this snow day, I thought I’d share some new work that I’m pretty excited about.
First, a peek inside the sketchbook. I’ve started reading T.S. Eliot’s Four Quartets (as part of this challenge), and that second page is covered in some of my favorite quotes. One in particular that has been on my mind…
What might have been and what has been
Point to one end, which is always present.
The doodles above represent 4 different styles of some concept art I made last week for DIY Network. It’s so much fun to try different techniques and styles, and I think what we landed on will be pretty rad. You’ll see it this Spring.
Below are some doodles I did for another video I’m working on with HGTV. This one is all about decorating your walls, and it’s been really fun! (You can see the first two videos here.)
The silhouette also makes a return in this video. Below is how one of the silhouettes evolved into just the right character. It always takes a few tries.
I guess I should get back to it. Hope you have some lovely snow to enjoy wherever you are too!
