What Inspires Me?

Faces. Seeing how every little stroke can change an entire expression. Watching a person come to life through paint and pencil and brush.

Horses and felines, particularly the big cat variety. Both of these animal types are some of the most graceful and aesthetically pleasing to my eye, personally.

“Art is all about inspiration, bringing something new and magical to the world.”

Filling the world with a little beauty, hope, and subtle magic – one painting at a time.

Logo design process #3 - the finished design! We went with a white outline sort of deal, and I used a similar color theme for the words as the graphic. Really love how it turned out! Much as I try to practice with a sort of “messy” look, I always come back to clean lines because I adore them. ❤️❤️

Logo Design process #2 - here are some failed coloring attempts after finalizing the lineart. My initial concept was to do sort of a “watercolor swash” kind of look, but I haven’t really done that much digitally and the brushes I was using just weren’t coming out right. The third image is the base I used for the final coloring style. Much as I try to get really artsy with swashes and brush strokes... my digital work always comes back to a very simplistic, block shading kind of look, and I’m not mad about it. 😀

I really enjoy doing logos, when I get the chance. I just wanted to kinda show my process, so here are some concept sketches from my latest design. The main concept was multiple hands holding a baby for a doula service. So I had fun with it! #logo #graphicdesign #doula #sketch #process #designprocess #hands #multiracial #baby #birth #safebirth #birthoptions #birthdoula #motherhood #naturalbirth #allbirthisbirth ...
