Earlier this week, my sister welcomed a new baby boy into the world! He is absolutely precious, and I can’t wait to finally meet him and shower him with love when we are all together for my other sister’s wedding this June!
But June is quite a ways off, so I decided that while I’m impatiently waiting to meet my new nephew, it might be nice to make and send my sister a gift for her little guy’s room. After some encouragement from my daughter, I decided to finish a piece that has so far only been living in my art pad as a rough sketch. I was planning to be done with the whole thing last night so that I could share the finished illustration with you today, but alas computer problems kept me from getting very far on it. In any case, I thought that this morning I could at least show you where the illustration is at currently. I’m having a tough time choosing the right color palette, but I’m hopeful that it will come around sometime later today. Fingers crossed! Once I’m happy with the finished piece I just might be listing prints in my shop, so if you’re interested, I hope you’ll keep an eye out for that.
By the way, if you are interested illustrator Brad Woodard will be teaching a new Skillshare class for Adobe Illustrator beginners (that’s me), called Learn the Ins and Outs of Illustrator. The class is only $20, but Brad (being the stellar guy that he is) has provided a discount for Creature Comforts readers! Just use promo code ‘COMFY’ at checkout to apply your 25% savings! The whole class will only cost you $15! Such an amazing price for so much learning! Sign up here! If you want to read about my experience in Brad’s last class you can find my post here.
Have a beautiful and relaxing weekend friends! See you next week! xo Ez
