One of the reasons I started exploring digital art, is how easy it is to make adjustments when needed. Corrections or alternate versions are just so easily achieved, and in my brief experience that means I should strive to do my absolute best and focus on the details, much more so than I would with a regular sketch. Sketching to me is usually impulsive, expressive. But these illustrations are meant to be very deliberate, and that’s how I’ll approach them from now on. I made some alterations to my “Fuck You! Love, Me” piece and feel a lot more confident as a (hobbyist) illustrator. And quite comfortable with the process and medium.
I am also discovering how much easier it is to include watercolored elements to digital works (something which held me back from doing more with my art, and my more I mean “selling” #SorryNotSorry) and will work on more of these kinds of illustrations. I’ve got so many ideas, now it’s just a matter of finding the time (not always an easy feat with 2 kids under school-going-age).
These are all available to license on Stocksy, which I’m very excited about, because this feels like an expansion of my business, branching out, growing my “client base” when it comes to selling stock.
I’ll also put these and/or variations of them in my Merch shops at Redbubble and Society6. (Links to those are to the right in the sidebar.)
