Watermelons

A few days ago I mentioned here that I have been experimenting quite a lot with objects and patterns. Not just decorative patterns with lots of lines, dots and details, which is usually my thing, but building patterns using separately illustrated objects.

This is one of the pieces I finished recently.

This is quite new to me and I was rather happy with the result. I liked how the watermelons turned out, their colors and their particular imperfections in terms of sizes and angles.

Then, just for fun, I decided to test the pattern on a few products from my Society 6 gallery.

I thought the result was really sweet. There is something about watermelons that always make me happy. Maybe it’s their summery colors: green and pink is one of the best combinations. Or maybe it’s their shape that resembles a sort of smile in a way, doesn’t it? :0)

Sisters

Hi everyone!

Let me introduce you to my Sisters. Say hello to them!

Sisters

These girls were inspired by European winters, in particular by a trip to Moscow that I went on last year. All the women looked so beautiful and elegant in their fur coats, I just had to draw them!

I decided to keep it in black and white and focus on the lines as much as possible. I wanted to recreate the look of the different textures I saw. In the end it worked like therapy for me: drawing line after line, detail after detail, adding in the shading and the volume, slowly building the illustration on paper… It’s my favourite process in the world!

Anyway, I’ve had this illustration for quite a while now and recently decided to put it on Society 6. I like the quality and the variety of products they have on offer and I LOVE to see my drawings applied to real objects! When I’m drawing I don’t really think about how my illustration would look as a wall clock or as a handbag, so it’s always an exciting surprise!

My Sisters are now available for purchase as art prints (framed or not, you choose!), as tote bags in various sizes, as wall clocks, pillows and a bunch of other nice goodies for you and your home!
