MATS Week 2 - Home Decor Assignment

Make Art That Sells - Week 2
Home Decor Assignment: Design a plate using florals

Things got a bit out of hand this week, but I like the result. Who says a flower can't have a dinosaur and a high heeled shoe growing out of it! This is hand drawn, scanned into the computer, and manipulated with Photoshop and Illustrator. Hope you like it! Onto the children's book market in class next week.

Make Art that Sells: Assignment 1 - Bolt Fabric

Bolt fabric design with two coordinating fabrics
watercolor, pen and ink, and digital 
June 8, 2013

As mentioned a few weeks ago, I am taking an AMAZING online class with Lilla Rogers (artist, art agent, teacher extraordinaire) called Make Art That Sells. This is the first assignment from the class. I never thought I could make something like this! I have already learned so much in this course. This is a combination of watercolor, pen and ink, and Photoshop. I kind of dislike using the computer, but I am really happy with the end result. I guess I should chill and stop complaining about the computer. I hope you like it!
