Hi Illustration Friday peeps! It’s been awhile, and I am glad to be back. I completed this small keepsake collage earlier this week, and it goes perfectly with the IF theme. These little collage girls are a wee bit different from my usual silly sweet style and I love it! I feel so energized going in a new direction for a change. This sleeping beauty and more are available in my Etsy shop.
This is another example of a project from the Pikaland Bootcamp I am enrolled in. The task was to let go and create 3 separate projects in one week using different media with the same composition. I think the goal was to find what we know and to loosen up our style.
Lately, the little lonely girl has been a recurring theme in my work. I don’t know where she came from exactly, but she seems to fit with what I am interested in lately: emotion. Not just sadness (although it seems the most obvious here) but to explore how to evoke a specific feeling from my work.
This is “tunnel girl” she is afraid and embarrassed to show herself to the world. She has been hurt before, and sits curled in her safe tunnel. This composition was done in ink, collage, and digital illustration.
