70's colored love!

So, I've been drawing and sketching a lot more lately.  I have recently been fortunate enough to have a lot better setup as far as computers go... like.. a lot better.  I have Josh (the bf) to thank for the new set-up, so I thought I'd post a little sketch I did for him.

Here's the raw sketch on paper.

I pulled it into photoshop and lightened up the paper color, then I went to Illustrator to do a little live tracing. Here is just a quick color study, veeeery 1970's!

I plan on using the vector drawing in gimp and coloring it with the wacom, which may make an appearance soon.  All of this is really just to improve my computer illustration skills, which are in their infant phase currently.

Thanks for the new setup, Josh.  You rock! :D

Root Health Coaching Logo Design

I just finished a logo design for a friend who started a family health coaching business in Fayetteville.  It was a fun project, and I'm happy with the final product!

Here are some preliminary sketches:

The first sketch was the basis of design, which I created on the ipad, then I moved to a more detailed hand drawn sketch.

I used the hand drawn sketch as the base, then cleaned it up in photoshop, live traced it in illustrator, cleaned up the lines, worked on the colors and added text.  Here is the final logo.

If you would like to check out the business, see their website here.

Over the last several years, I've seen bloggers reduce content, switch to YouTube or Instagram, or simply stop.  I was among them.  I ran a food blog for years, but after the birth of my first child, I couldn't keep up.

Well, that life seems like another world as the cases and deaths from Covid-19, caused by the coronavirus that is tearing across the world, are rising daily.  The White House is telling America this morning to brace for their, "Pearl Harbor or 911 moment," and it's very scary.

A lot of us who deal with stress by processing through our art are coming back to the internet, back to blogs.  Most of us are self quarantining, isolated inside our homes for weeks on end.  I'll be the first to say that I don't have a lot of free time in our endless confinement.  My husband and I are frantically trying to keep our two humans under the age of four happy, fed, and healthy.  We're four weeks in and going a bit stir crazy.  Every time we get a groc…
