And that, in turn, has affected my art.
I'm currently working on two separate projects simultaneously for Advanced Illustration. One is a book cover for Mary Poppins (which I don't have images of) and the other, or others, are Spring flower icons to be used on product. I'm thinking wrapping paper, desktop wallpaper (for myself or anyone who would want to use it), umbrellas, rain boots...possibilities are endless.
Poppies- my favorite flower! I pretty much can't do a piece with flowers in it without including poppies. They're just so whimsical in their own way, how they all bend and point in different directions. When I think of my idea of what bliss would be, it is a never-ending field of red poppies.
Daisies - they're just cute and sweet and oh, so Springy!
Pansies - whenever I see Pansies, I think of my grandmother because they were her favorite flower, so I guess that there is a deeper meaning in there. But the reality is, I was in Advanced Illustration, and my instructor, who was setting up still lifes found some silk pansies and asked if I wanted to draw and paint them. But they are very colorful and I love color!
Anyway, here's some of the stuff I've done so far with the icons:
A desktop. It should be 1024 x 768 pixels when you click it so it is usable. But please credit me, if possible.
I'm also currently working on making Teddy Bear Sunflower icons as well. My friend Leslie suggested I draw them. I have to admit, they look pretty cool:
Do you guys have any suggestions for other things I should use these icons for? Comment and let me know :)
