I thought it would be fun today to share the entire process of an illustration, from the idea to the sketch to the finished piece.
This one came to me as I was putting away laundry the other day, laughing about how I had told a friend earlier in the week that I had gotten so good at self-care that I was worried I was spoiling myself. But really...isn't reading a good book with a warm mug of coffee way more important than dusting?
I think so.
So here's the beginning sketch...
And a video of inking in the lettering... (I almost always use a Papermate Flair pen)
A few close-ups of the lettering...
The full illustration after ink...
And the finished illustration with lots of fun color!
Remember to practice self care this week! Those dishes can wait. 😉
Sending good vibes your way!
