Between the day job and client deadlines, I've been sneaking in time this week to work on my illustrating style and technique. A talented artist, Katie Rodgers of Paperfashion, taught an online course for the last week and a half. It was a blast. We covered the basics like sketching, color washing, and embellishing - I feel like I'm bringing new life to my work. My "final project" is the sketch below, complete with iridescent glitter and gold ink.
