So I can't wait to share the most recent commission I've been working on this past week, but unfortunately it is still in the top secret stage. Until then, I will share some snippets of my color/texture planning for my final manuscript illustrations. I've been fooling around with patterns and printing them using a lithographic process which yields a somewhat inconsistent product.
The inconsistency can be a wonderful thing and also a very annoying thing. So for now, I'm just playing at peicing together my favorite parts.
More on this in the coming weeks...for now I'll leave you with some photos from Christopher's garden:
