Here’s the thing:
Doing what you love for a living is fantastic. It’s great and I wouldn’t trade it. But, when it’s a creative field.. sometimes that means you can get burnt out and not want to do any personal work. I design allllllllllllllllllllll day long and it’s a dream – but it also means that when I come home, I don’t want to be anywhere near the computer or think about much art at all. I’ve been way out practice with my drawing and it’s been ages since I did a digital illustration.
I’ve been working on this freelance project for months and months – or I should say, it’s been in the works. And I’ve just dragged my feet on it. Not because the project isn’t cool, but because when I get home from work – I’m lazy. Period.
But, deadlines happen, as they so often do, and I have been pulling some late nights to get caught up on my workload – it’s a bit too soon for me to have this feeling of being in school again, losing sleep, but at the same time… it’s a little fun. But it also takes away from my previous commitment to posting a Sunday Sketch every week.
So, in lieu of that, here’s a very rough sneak peak into what I’m working on: cars! Not really my forté, but.. at least it’s art.
I win the award for messiest, most vague layers.
P.S. You’ll find that this design is very similar to my mini-cooper design – and you would be correct! That is how the client heard of me and asked me to create them something very similar to that. Since my mini illustration was not chosen for the contest it was created for and therefore never published, I figured… why not! It’s also inspired me to do a series of posters in this style.. except, probably not more cars. I’m really not a huge fan of cars. I think I’d like to do other objects and perhaps even animals if I’m feeling adventurous enough.. hmmm…
