just a quick update to share some of my recent pet portraits that some friends have commissioned from me.
I am really enjoying doing these simple paintings of pups and i’m getting more comfortable with gouache. It’s tricky, but the more I learn the proper technique, the more I really enjoy using it.
i’m also enjoying this almost child-like and soft illustration style i’ve been developing. I’m really thinking hard about attempting a children’s book (something thats always been in the back of my mind) but with so many other projects ahead of me, I may put it off a little longer. who knows?
I think that in the next month or so I may open up an etsy shop for commissions, I just haven’t figured out a price structure yet. It feels so strange and awkward to ask people for money for something I genuinely enjoy so much and i’m not comfortable yet putting a price tag on something that for me just feels like happy playtime. Hah, I guess its just a foreign concept to me to make money doing what makes me happy. Time to start adjusting my thinking?
Anyway! thats all for today. <3
