Square Carousel Collective

If you didnt already know I'm part of a group called The Square Carousel Collective. It consists of 10 talented illustrators that post bi-weekly challenges, with each artist taking a turn selecting a theme.Here are the first three themes and my solutions to each of them.

And check us out here

Challenge 1: Carousel animal
When I heard the topic of Carousel Animal my mind instantly gravitated towards rabbits (having the nickname ‘bunny’ in highschool only helped). With this piece i used a newer method i’ve been experimenting with, using pen, pencil and digital. Enjoy~

Challenge 2: Home away from home
There aren’t any locations that I consider my home-away-from-home, I rather associate that idea or feeling with my husband. That sense of comfort and safety, a place to relax and feel ‘at home’ can be acheived anywhere when I’m with him and I wouldn’t have it any other way.

Sadly I just got back from my honeymoon so I didn’t have the appropriate amount of time for the initial image for this concept, but I hope you can enjoy something quick and cute <3

Challenge 3: Honey
Originally I wanted to do something with honey milk tea (Lolicup brand ftw) but I wasn’t sure how it would work. So I tried to jazz it up and have her drink outta a flower and then it just turned into this XD I guess picking such a broad topic really bit me in the butt this time around!

More wedding illu's

So this is the image I came up with for both the signature frame and the lil postcards (to go along with the guests favors). If all goes as planned i'm hoping to take this and few other pieces to the venues open house to see if any brides would be interested in doing something similar for their special day. Wish me luck!

Back with a vengence!!

Sorry about the mini hiatus but I kinda had some stuff going on (wedding, honeymoon, graduation,...you know, nothing major XD ) But I have quite a few things to upload over the next few days from my 'time off' so please be patient with me :D

To kick things off I have the portraits I whipped up for my bridesmaids. Tried to keep them as simple as possible for my own sanity.
