I've been a little uninspired with painting lately, so I've gone back to my roots with pencil drawings. This time however, I've taken a different route, and I'm trying to shake things up a bit. I LOVE the work of illustrators Kelly Smith and Bec Winnel. They are both working out of Australia, and their art has been featured in tons of shows, fashion editorials, and magazine covers! I LOVE that they can both succeed in the art world, as well as commercially, in the fashion industry. Very inspiring to me! ^__^

I just felt like drawing and playing with color, so I picked up a cream colored sketch pad and half heartedly started sketching. Then I really got into it, ans started getting all kinds of ideas for a new series. Any way, I don't want to go nuts and change up what I do JUST for other people, JUST to sell art. But, I do want to push myself and try new things, just to see what I can do, or rather, what I like to do. Any way, this was the first one from that endeavor, and I'm kind of pleased with it. I was kind of excited to share it, but of course, the photo quality is terrible lol...


  1. Very nice.. Keep going.. Id love to see more of these. The splash of colour is perfect.

  2. Thank you. I've got another one in the works, I just don't know what I want to do with it though lol
