Hand lettering Project

The goal was to take my favorite animal draw a piece that draws from this inspiration. This is the family dog Roxy. I do love her!40872_1553615555177_1915397_n

Next brainstorm

I basically came up with some words that describe Roxy and how I can express this in different ways. I played around with color, pattern and words and yes we both love nature.


There you have it and the flower, by the way, is another flower practice. I have been working hard and practicing a lot since I am a home and school’s out.  I am currently working on relauncing my etsy shop where all of my art will be available for sale. I am thinking of giving some away. I am also redoing my blog. I want it it to be ads free and really incorporate the brand Little Lemonade studio-the brand I will be launching.  Starting Sunday I will be posting a creative challenge in an effort to boost my creativity. I will be posting these every Sunday and every Wednesday I will be posting some of my projects. I am still working through the details. Please be sure and subscribe to my blog. I have some great ideas planned. Thanks!

Layout and Design

Learning all about this layout and here is what I have learned.

In the early 1800s there wasn’t much competition and the product was the main focus. Then gradually it is the idea, a lifestyle and day in the life rather and branding. Now I think its more about character, personality and appealing to the individual experience.

I really love the Coca-Cola because they connect with anyone, are carefree and just about enjoying life. This is the style I want to persue in my art. I really love the Pear Soap. I love the somewhat simple yet detailed work.  I really love the playful vibe and the letters in the lithograph ad as well. I really love a vintage feel. This is the style I seem to me realy drawn to and want to use in creating my style of art.

I am working on a project and these are some layouts I love and was just taking notes of the letterforms, layout and what I like about them.

Ideas for my art:

Style: vintage

Mood: fun, sweet and colorful

Details: nature, hearts in small ways, monochromatic shades
