Valentine Postcard

Valentine Postcard - student project

For this class, I decided to create a Valentine. I brainstormed a list of things associated with Valentine's Day, that included things like candy, kisses, flowers, cupid, love, hearts, and kissy lips. I was able to draw most of the items on my list without any reference images, but I did need some for the kissy lips and for cupid.

Here are some of the motifs I sketched and inked.

I tried a few different color palettes, and here's the one I settled on.

I arranged my motifs into the letters XOXO for my postcard, and here's the finished artwork.

I draw things. I make things. I love coffee.
