These three illustrations were made for a client seeking to publish his children's story. Peanut butter, little froggies and gigantic bears make such lovely combinations. Those weird, watery textures were made using dura-lar, the coolest vellum-mylar hybrid out there. The surface resists watercolor and diluted ink, so liquids just sit on top and evaporate away. It's messy and weird and has a suprising amount of tooth for such a smooth drawing surface. It's also way easier on the eyes than a lightbox .
And this watercolored portrait was commissioned for a bridal shower, with the only available reference shot being a tiny little one-inch tall, head-on picture with her fiance. On Facebook.
