Snail Mail

Last July I worked on a series of paintings for a contest for a children's book. Even though I didn't win, this was super helpful on getting some pieces done for my portfolio!

The deadline was short for the amount of work so I had to make a sprint...

... The hardest art sprint I *ever* did. It was so tough waking up at 5am and going home close to 10 pm for a month.

Below I share some of the process I went through when designing the old lady: Mrs. Micas. She's a lovable person who loves to dress up (to the best of her ability) and cares much for her garden and beautiful flowers.
