Has anyone heard of Illustration Friday? While I was reading up on freelance illustration I found it as a recommendation in a book. I’ve been checking out the site off and on, but the main premise is every Friday they post a new word and then you can submit your own interpretation of it to their site. I finally found time this week to sit down and do one, and was able to relate it to my stuff in a way too. I’ll try to stay on top of those for a while, just for fun. What do you think of her? At the start of this project I thought I might be able to use her for a card for a book club invitation or something, but I’m worried the colours are a little too bright. She’d need to have more sophisticated clothing and surroundings for a card – although she is reading “Masters of Fashion Illustration” by David Downton, which is on my wish list for my birthday. Did I mention this is my birthday month? Just throwing that one out there :)
In other news, I believe I have successfully loaded that promo code into my store, so for those of you in Calgary who are willing to meet up with me to get your prints and cards, just enter the code YYC at checkout to skip payment for any shipping!
