The Cherry Blossom Girl + Pandora
Merry Christmas Eve!! Wow! i can’t believe it’s here! I’m going to spend the first part of it cleaning my destroyed studio. Right now, i’m typing surrounded by multiple empty coffee cups, drawing references, candy, inks, colored pencils. You name it…. i need to clean.
Well, i finished up my first magazine cover yesterday. i’m really excited for you all to see it! it’s for a February issue of the magazine, so of course the cover theme is my favorite art subject matter, “Love”, but instead of doing something ultra lovey dovey, i decided to shoot for a feeling a little more abstract and harder to capture on paper… i wanted to capture the feeling of “Intimacy”. i wanted the viewer to look at the picture and feel first of all that they were the only person in the world that mattered to the cover girl, and second, that you had known her your whole life.. whether or not i accomplished that remains to be seen. haha
Now, for the main subject matter of the post. (sorry about the rambling; i slept in and now feel wired. hah) The drawing today is a sketch i did of two great French [intlink id=”3829″ type=”page”]bloggers[/intlink] Alix of Cherry Blossom Girl, and Louise of Miss Pandora. Alix’s blog is named after one of my favorite Air Songs, and i’ve been meaning to draw her for a while now. They did a photoshoot called “Les Nymphes” which you know with a title like that you can’t go wrong, but there was a picture of both Alix and Louise i had to draw.Tried something a little different out on the sketch. Hope you like it. Merry Eve of Christmas!
