I thought I’d share this progression of drawings that I did last Friday (I’ve always stayed home on Fridays, but now that Lucy is in preschool on Friday mornings and Aki is usually napping, it’s become my dedicated illustration time).
First I sketched from photographs. I’m lucky to have a couple of willing models.
Then I did some stylized drawings where I worked on simplifying the line and gesture.
And lastly I painted a little character that grew out of it all.
It’s so hot and summery around here! I hope everyone is staying cool.
