Love, Design, and Other Silliness

'Too bad I have no depth perception...'

Love isn't blind, just two-dimensional...? This guy popped up in my doodles, and I couldn't resist the silliness. This was also a good opportunity to reacquaint myself with the pen tool in Illustrator, brush up on the 'cut paper' technique I learned in Scott Franson's digital illustration class and try my hand at some hand-lettering - all of which I'd like to incorporate in my new portfolio website design - coming soon! (The lettering is kind of an abomination, but hey, it's a first attempt. More on my design insecurities later...)

Anyway, this also provides me the opportunity of wishing you all a very lovely Valentine's Day, and that I just couldn't pass up.

Illustration Friday: Surrender

Her story is still a little fuzzy in the details, but it seems that in order to save the mortal to whom she has surrendered her heart, Neptune's daughter must betray her people - knowing that she will consequently be banished from the sea henceforth and forever.

I'm sad it's not finished yet, but Friday is fast approaching and I just had to post! Definitely going to fix it up though, so any suggestions for improvement would be totally great :)
