UPDATE: This Illustration won Second Place, thank you Fig Commission!
Anyway, this one took longer than the others because I felt a bit burnt out on kitchen ideas. I love kitchens, but I always want to draw the same ones. I has to look at Dwell and UnHappy Hipster (yes there is irony in this) for ideas. I also went to the Cloisters this weekend with my mom and took lots of pictures of details in the tapestries and paintings. I tried showing JJ my pictures from the trip, but all I have are really zoomed in images of pieces of things that have no context. At least I am not pretending to be a photographer. In fact, I held back from taking any pictures of the water, skyline, or anything else because I figured JJ and I would go back and SHE would take the real pictures.
Happy this one is done, happy that I am going to pick up my printer tomorrow...again (long story), and happy to slowly resume the children's book. I had to put it down because of this contest and because I am training for the North East Regional Barista Competition at the last minute....as usual. It will be great I'm sure, but until it is over I have a low grade sense of impending doom. I hate performing.
Ok, more to come!
