New Illustration Work
While I was creating the illustration, Secda sent me some photos of her creations and the illustration was very much inspired by them - they are so cute! I hope to do a proper post about Secda and her creations soon!
Above is a detail from the larger illustration and below are the four banners.
Her creations are all decorated hangers (wall hangings) with cute little bags attached to them - hence the hanger I put in as part of her shop name. Some of my favourite designs of hers are here and here. I love that little shawl the bear is wearing in the second wall hanging!
I took the opportunity to work with colours that were a little brighter and eye catching than my usual illustrations and I loved it! One of my big goals this year is to start to experiement with colour! Still soft and gentle...(because that's what I love!) but exploring all the beautiful colours out there.
So more on Secdus's shop soon, but in the mean time if you want to take a look at one of the banners up close and in action and to check out Secdus's shop click here. The shop is just getting started but I have a feeling it will be a hit!
