I wanted really neat looking, hand-drawn social icons for my website. So I made my own.
I have decided to start an Etsy store by this May. I hoping to see my artwork – metamorphosis works and portraits – to anyone who wants them. There’s a lot to it. I’ve been researching it like crazy, and I feel like if there was three of me, I’d have more time for necessities – eating, sleeping, etc. Hopefully (a big hopefully), I’ll get spend my time with Nicholas and not have a part-time job to supplement my income. We shall see. Here are a couple of pieces I’ve started. I’m going to do original images as well as digital and high quality prints. A friend (Caroline) even suggested I make a downloadable adult coloring book. The whole thing has me very excited and feeling myself more than I have in years. Thanks to everyone for the encouragement.
Here is the finished and WIP of a copy of Iron Giant character. I chose mixed media because I was experimenting with the final product – I love the look. Wish I had taken more time to draw him out before adding the ink though. That’s alright – Nicholas looked at him and said, “Dat’s good, Mama!”
