I’ve had a coffee collection on my list for awhile and finally was able to get to it. I’m a coffee lover myself! I wanted to create some designs that were more graphic and contemporary looking. And I always tend to have some bright colors come out in my work. I started with Java as the first design to establish the look and color palette. Then the design elements started to come into the design.
Halloween products are so popular in art licensing and I’m always looking for ideas on how to promote my art on products. So I got this idea to…
This Unicorn Dreams illustration came out of an Illustrated Quote Art Challenge for the Art Licensing Show. I was imagining a unicorn looking at the stars and dreaming. Which is honestly something I often do. I have always been a star-gazer… And of course the quote is from Van Gogh, who really has so many lovely quotes circulating out there in the blogosphere. Though I can’t remember if I found the quote first and then I had the image to go with it or the other way around.
I love that unicorns are such magical creatures. Which is why I gave this one some curly tendrils for hair and freckles on his face. And the color is not a bright white but more of slight off-white which has more contrast against the teal background.
