Last week I showed you the sketches for The Creative Snob blog and as promised here is the reveal of the final. It ended up being a combination of the two sketches as well as an addition of some personal items and details and I think it turned out great. For more check out her blog and follow along here.
It's been awhile since I've shared a peek at a work in progress. I tend to show you more of the finished illustrations. Sometimes that's because I'm in a rush, sometimes it's because it's hard to follow the progress from stage one to final with such a small peek, and sometimes I just love the finished piece so much it seems silly. But today I thought I'd share some sketches for the blog The Creative Snob. When we started she knew she wanted a studio type setting that would showcase her main focuses of her blog, as well as her personality, and not be to limiting on topics she could then blog about. I took that idea and came up with these two sketches to help get a conversation going on exactly what she wanted. What she liked. What she didn't like. What worked or didn't work. Etc.
This was a particularly fun job and the progression from sketch to final while subtle looking was very cool. We added so many details after this point that will be lost to most people but were so special to her that it made it a very personal project.
I can't wait to show you the final illustration but for now I hope you enjoy your peek at my process.
I've worked with the lovely Heidi before on numerous custom stationery designs. We always create a flat notecard design that can be used as a mailable card or just as something to take notes/write things down on. Each one she has done for friends as family has been so fun. She is great to work with and I have enjoyed creating all of these special illustrations for her. This card above is no exception.

It's May... How is it May!? So much has happened over the last month... well months really and I've been so far behind from sharing. So my goal for May is to catch back up. But for now while I frantically draft blog posts I had to share my May calendar fashion illustration! You can also get an 8 by 10 print of her here.
