Anyone out there kicking around on Behance? I finally set up my profile, just a handful of projects uploaded so far but more to come!
I DRANK MY WATERCOLOR WATER BY ACCIDENT
Yup, why I stopped using mugs as water cups.
Thanks so much! I’ve done some tshirts here and there and would definitely be down for more clothing projects in the future.
It’s not, though that’s a great song! I just love the phrase itself - such a great image for being obsessed/preoccupied with an idea. I also find it’s rather suggestive and makes me think of gardens, gathering honey, the birds & the bees, femininity, and delicate things that have a sting to them.
Woah, hello radar madness (2nd time too, awesome!) and hello to all the new followers!
Thank you! I did go to school for art - first a diploma in fine arts, then a degree in illustration/design at OCAD.
As for inspiration, oh, loads of places! Movies, books, countless hours meandering through tumblr or wikipedia, music, something someone said, the shape of condensation on a window, vintage photographs, fashion, botanical illustration, other people’s art, poetry, a tea stain, the lighting in a room, old sci-fi and fantasy book covers, and on and on…
I find a lot of my inspiration comes from research and reading. I love research. Learning some tidbit or another about antiquated phrases or folklore or astronomy usually sets off a lot of ideas. I often get immersed in one topic that will be a huge inspiration for a while, like the mythical city of Ys or the ancient extramission theory of vision, then flit to something else once I’ve exhausted it. But inspiration is always cyclical, and I’ll often come back to things I’d left with a fresh perspective, a new way to approach it.
A few resources I love:
