Fall is here…

8 Oct

…and that means (among other things) that it’s time to break out the sweaters! I’ve been thinking a lot about fashion lately, and not only in the narcissistic sense. I’ve mentioned in other blog posts that my drawings, like my wardrobe, tend to default to T-shirts and jeans if I’m not careful, so I’ve been trying to branch out on the page and in my closet. So, this is what I wore (and drew!) today:

 

Complementary colors~!

See, I told you guys we’d be seeing more Illustrator work! I had a lot of fun with this one. It’s simplistic, but I tend to like that when it comes to vector art. I also like how the orange-and-blue color scheme came out–it’s a color combination I always love, and it seems appropriately autumnal. I am actually knitting a scarf that color, too…and, since I’m exhausted from work today, I think I’m gonna get back to it. See you on Wednesday with some writing!

I can’t beat this heat!

20 Jul

I just got back from a very brief (but very fun!) visit home, and man oh man did I forget how muggy Vermont is! My folks live near the water, so even when it’s hot the air is nice and dry when I come to visit. On the East Coast, though, it was so humid when I got off the plane that I practically had to swim to my car! But enough of that–here’s something I drew on the flight back:

Faaahhshion~I always default to drawing short, hourglass-shaped girls whenever I’m doodling, so this time I tried to branch out and draw someone a little different. (…Well, she’s taller, at least!) I’m also trying to learn to draw clothing better. A lot of my characters dress in T-shirts and jeans, probably because that’s all I wore up until a year or two ago, and I want to be able to draw clothing that fits them better. I like how this one turned out, though–maybe I’ll color it later.

Speaking of liking things (and isn’t that a smooth segue?), here’s something I overheard at lunch today:

Overheard at the Polka Dot

So far, that’s the best retaliation I’ve heard to a child not liking something. I look forward to having the opportunity to use that line myself!

Welp, I think that’s about it from me for tonight. I’m gonna get back to the important things, like doing laundry and draping my body over the box fan in the living room.
