I meant to have this illustration done for Valentine’s day, but two years in a row my Valentine’s concept came to me on Valentines day. The main inspiration for this piece came from the 1934 film “It Happened One Night” by one of my all time favorite directors Frank Capra. The movie is one of my family’s favorites. I really wanted to capture that moment when a person realizes that they are falling in love. I had a really clear picture in my head of what I was going for. It ended up taking me 4-6 redraws till I felt like I captured that feeling. I’m really happy with how it turned out.
Also I’m creating a limited edition fine art prints of this piece. There will only be 15 prints of this ever made. The Print size is 17 inches by 17 inches and the image size is 15 inches by 15 inches. Every print I will hand embellish. I’m Selling them for $120 with free shipping. Leave a comment if you are interested. I posted a picture of the print below. Let me know what you think :) I love hearing from you.
Happy Valentine’s Day!
Sorry for the massive absence from blogging. When the new year came around, I made a New Year’s resolution to really improve in my drawing and painting over this next year. I’ve been practicing drawing a lot, and have been working on my fundamentals, also working to improve on some of the weaknesses I have in drawing and painting. I will be posting some new work soon, and hopefully you will start seeing a difference. :) Also, my brother and I have been working a lot more on the story book we are writing. The painting today is actually a scene out of the story. The characters names are Samuel Percy and Elizabeth Finn (aka Lil Finn). I hope you like it, and I hope you’re having a great Valentine’s Day. :)
Hey Friends! Happy Valentine’s Day! It was wonderful meeting alot of you yesterday at the Chictopia 10 Summit! My bags finally arrived! And this trip has been a blast! I’m going to have a post up purely deadicated to NY Fashion Week. But right now, slept in a little late and have to get running. Well, since it is Happy Valentine’s Day, and i already gave you the valentine, I thought i would post this “Declaration of Romantic Intent”. i’ve seen it moving throughout the internet lately, and i don’t know who created it, but i thought it was genius! So take it, fill it out and pass it on! Share the love… Happy Valentine’s Day!
Ok Friends, don’t worry, i haven’t lost my mind… I know it’s not Valentine’s Day… But i thought i would paint< a valentine for yawl, but also, i though it would be cool to give you it early so you can download & print and share the love! Yep, yep, that is your homework assignment, give this Valentine to someone you care for, or love, or have a crush on! :) p.s. i made the box the size of the mini Nerds box... cause those are the best V-day candy!

Wow, happy early Valentine’s day! How are you all doing? i think i’m getting sick which is kinda a bummer, but any ways, i had an idea a few weeks back to make a Valentine for all you to be able to download and print and give to someone you’re dating, or you like, or just a friend, or family member… haha anyone, but i must tell you, it is made to be shared, so please share the love around ;) With that said, i’m going to share it with you all!
Hahah So first off, pardon my French. i know the French on this picture is grammatically off… Also, i know today isn’t Valentine’s Day, but i thought i would post it anyways. i found this the other day. It’s kinda a goofy Valentine i made years ago for my friend. hahha It makes me laugh looking at it. It’s suppose to say “Will you be my Valentine: yes or no” hahahahha Oh, on another note, i joined BlogLovin today. If you haven’t, i would suggest checking it out.
