It has been fun experiment with some new ways of illustrating. I typically do all of my work by hand and then use the Adobe products to make them print-ready. In this series, I have enjoyed using Illustrator to add color to those hand-drawn sketches. They still have that same whimsical hand-drawn look, but I like the ability to play with the color using the software products. You’ll see more of these beach and pool designs as I think I have ‘summer fever’ already! Look for some of my pattern work as well in the new trade magazines at Surtex in New York and the Licensing Expo in Las Vegas.
