Inktober 2020- Part 3 & 4

Today’s post is another Inktober drawing. I fell a little behind, but I am not letting that deter me. Today I focused on two prompts to make up for the “delay”. The prompts of the days were “bulky” and “radio”. I chose to draw a young lady in an oversized sweater grooving to the beat from a similarly oversized retro boom box.

No newfangled AirPods for this groove

I had fun drawing this illustration. A benefit of drawing digitally is that you can work out a pose a little more easily than drawing traditionally. I also added a pop of color.

Custom Wedding Chalkboards

I am so excited to share these new custom pieces for a wedding with you!

I was recently asked to make chalkboards for a wedding. Each chalkboard was hand-drawn by Yours Truly. I am quite pleased with how these have turned out!

These were a joy to make and are something that I look forward to making for other happy couples in the future. Please enjoy this lovely piece featuring a quote from Julia Child. I really love this quote AND how this piece came out.

I also really liked how the Bar Menu board came out. This is something that can be easily customized for different venues and …well, menus! The wedding reception was held at the BEAUTIFUL Downtown Market in Grand Rapids, MI. One of my favorite places in the city!

I also really liked how the Menu board came out. I had a lot of fun experimenting with different fonts for this board. The menu is something that can be easily customized for different venues and …well, menus!
