Illustrate from Sketches: 3 Patterns in 3 Weeks, She Grows Rainbows - student project

Three patterns done today! Lots more to play with, it's interesting to see the colors in my photos and the colors I had most fun playing with in my palette - it turned out really pastel and I like it!

I really really love these vegetable 'vessels' (items to carry your veggies in!)

Tracing and re-coloring from some sketches! I don't think I expanded properly and who knows what the file size looks like... but I made these carrots in Illustrator!!! So impressed and excited to learn more! (forgot to save my swatches to use for this one too, but it's cute nonetheless!)

Sketches! I did some with pencil and some with different markers, so the quality of scans is great to notice the difference.

This is a collection that has been living inside of me for a long time, and these are all my own photos. I love gardening and I think it is one of the most primal creative acts that we can engage in. The greatest gift is to continually witness the mysterious and magical ways that nature provides for us when we care for her. And it will always yield the most simple and delicious meal ;)
