17 x 20 Colored Pencil and Graphite
I need to do pieces like this once in awhile... they help me to stay in touch with my own inspirations, rather than always trying to produce work that is geared toward somebody else's vision or what I suppose to be their vision.
My next little endeavor will be to create promo postcards, showing my illustration work, and mailing them out to all the breweries and wineries in the Cincinnati area. I think this piece might be front and center on the postcard. I could see something like this on the front of a wine label, couldn't you? (nod 'yes'...there ya go...)
The other little endeavor I want to get cracking on is to get my Instagram page spruced up and active. I've had one for a couple years, but haven't been very attentive to the whole Instagram revolution. I've focused on Facebook, which has been really successful for me, but I just have an inkling that I need to have a stronger presence on Instagram too, as I look toward the future.
So lots of projects on the To-Do list. None of them guaranteed to yield any new opportunities, but you don't know until you try, right?
The next drawing is already underway, and it's another illustration for the Lemongrass story. Little by little, page by page, word by word, picture by picture... that book is going to happen!
