It’s been a ridiculous amount of time since I last posted. Admittedly I had a bit of “illustrator’s Block” (is that a thing?) Anyway, I think it’s gone now. And this is the result
The word last week for Illustration Friday was hitched. And as I explained in my previous post, I really wanted to try something different. That said, this idea popped in to my head as well: everyone takes note of the couple when they get hitched, but the flower girls are the most entertaining. They always end up looking disheveled and dirty and get distracted so easily. I though this was a fun representation of that. Plus, she was inspired by my good friend’s niece.
This is a completely new style of illustration for me, which was a little daunting. The word hitched drummed up ideas of sweet, demure brides, all dressed up in lace, exuding innocence. And I guess this is what I tried to bring across in the illustration. Thus the change in style. Here’s to trying something new yeah?
