Wonder Woman make-over


Recently my attention was called to this fantastic blog Superhero of the month. The idea is to submit a make-over of the designated superhero, a different one each month.
The August superhero was Wonder Woman. I thought I'd depict her in a more modern, every-day way. Her weapon of choice is her iPad.

I only had 20 minutes to work on her, and most of that time was spent waiting for each watercolor application to dry, but I'd love to know what you think.

Karen Millen bag

I'm completely in love with this Karen Millen bag I saw in Harper's Bazaar September edition (Australia). Normally I'd be a little trepidacious about pinks, purples and oranges together, but this bag is wonderful! The colors seem to have increased in saturation during the scanning process, so it looks more red than the orange it should be. Sorry about that. ;)

Dior clutch

Found this sweet little Dior clutch in the September 2011 edition of Harper's Bazaar (Australia). Perfect excuse to bust out the glitter!

Colorful kicks II

Here are some scans of the shoes I've been painting lately. The top ones were just to quickly sketch out some color combinations. The bottom one is the scheme I went with for the final.




If you like this little painting you can get your very own print over at the Illustrateur Etsy Store.

Colorful kicks

Here's a little sneak peak at something I'm working on...some very colorful kicks, using gouache and ink.

Do you have a favorite color combination? Maybe something you've always wanted but never found?

Lunch-time sketches

Just doing a little lunch-time sketching at work. Taking a break from the computer always makes me feel better.

I only have my 'small' pencil case at work today, so I've just used some watercolor pencils, a water brush, and a felt-tip pen, in my work notebook (usually reserved for meeting notes).
