This one’s a combination of wanting to paint lesser known fantasy creatures and finding a lovely set of watercolour brushes. Kirin (or Xirin) are mythical hoofed creatures, often with horns and scales, from East Asian cultures (Wikipedia link). When I was living in Japan, I remember being surprised to find that the Japanese name for giraffe came from the same source …so I snuck in a little giraffe print to my design.
I love this! The Kirin doesn’t get enough attention considering how awesome it is.
Candy crush? Or Candy ‘Corn? #moleskine #seahorse #sketch #vscocam
Testing out some ideas. #moleskine #seahorse #chrysanthemum #sketch #vscocam
Trying to branch out - chrysanthemums always seemed too daunting. Until this weekend when they didn’t.
Collaboration with Aya Rosen ( nedandaya) in Moleskine.
Me: Can I get you to make me a visual palette of colors you’d like, so I can have a better idea of what to work off of?
Client: Golden-orangey, black-like blue, purplish-blue, berry purple, dusky gray-purple.
Uh, no problem?
Sometimes I think Clients from Hell is really Designers from Hell.
