The weather can often influence your mood!
This illustration works well for this week’s Illustration Friday theme of ‘influence’. This piece is a lot moodier than my typical work but I really enjoyed the change of pace. I often create fun, bubbly, colourful art for children but it’s interesting to somewhat deviate and create something a bit different. My style is still very evident here but the colour palette and subject matter stray slightly.
I’d like to work on more illustrations like this – ones that might appeal to a different audience (not just children). This also reminds me of how much I miss painting. I blogged about some abstract artwork I did several years ago and I’ve been itching to break out the paints again. Sometimes I just need to get off the computer and back into the wonderfully rich textures and colours of REAL paint!
I’ve added this piece to my Etsy store if you’re interested in purchasing a print :)
