Teatime Is For The Birds

Still going through some minor history in order to make this blog more complete, bare with me!

Listed below are some of the pieces that began my journey towards an illustration focus.  While illustration has always been my dream (we have videos from when I was as young as 7 years old, stating that I was going to be an artist, though my parents had their doubts), graphic arts are more practical in this day in age, when even illustrative work seems to air on the side of the vector.  While I have done work like this as well, I prefer by far to work directly with pencil to paper (though I often add some photo editing to fix mistakes)

It was the end of the school year and I was in desperate need of a break from teaching (I'm a part time elementary art teacher and freelance designer) and from the graphic work that I had been swarmed with.  I found the sketch for the drawing below and decided to pull out my prismacolor pencils.
Here is the result:


I was in heaven, and very seriously addicted for the remainder of the month and onto the summer, which lead to the tea-themed illustrations below, along with many commissioned bird pieces before I eventually switched to watercolor at the beginning of August.



 
The original piece shown at the top ("Teatime For Bird") can be found in my etsy shop, both in print form and as a note card set! For custom commissions, feel free to contact me by clicking the small mail icon on the right hand side of the blog.
