Illustration Friday: TATTOO

Once again I find myself unsatisfied. This isn't what I wanted it to be, but I did something and I have to show it because I can't bare to miss a week. The more I look at it, the more I dislike it, oh well... hopefully, after a while, the more I look at it, the more it'll inspire me to do something better. :)
Next week I have to FINISH something!! Sketches only go so far. ;)

Illustration Friday: INSECT

Yay! I can get one in early this week...

This is a sampling of the work I do at my day job. I design stickers for a craft/scrapbooking company. Well, used to really. I've been there 5 years and now I do a lot of non-sticker related design work and more project management - don't get to illustrate as often. Both designs are several years old.

These are photos of the actual stickers, I plan to update this post later with the digital artwork.

I'll still be thinking about doing a new piece for this week's topic... but that'll come later in the week, as usual!

Illustration Friday: TEA

Like you didn't see this one coming...

Over on my design blog I have a million illustrations of COFFEE. Why, oh, why wasn't the theme this week coffee?! Anyway, I was at a complete loss this week, and then this teacup unicorn idea popped into my head, I thought it was kinda funny. The original sketch is below. I like them both; I consider it a great asset that I can amuse myself so easily. ;)

Obviously the expression of the teacup unicorn is the most dramatic difference between these two sketches. The top guy is proud to steeped in your tea, but it appears the guy down below, mmmm... not so much.
