Want to see how I do my vector doodles?
SketchToFinish
First I start with a doodle, then I re-draw the doodle with my fancy art pens, then I scan the image and auto trace the image in Illustrator. After I clean it up and add some color it still looks hand drawn, but it’s vector! Neat, huh?

StarGirl SketchI have been working on a larger piece over the past week where I’m just letting myself make a mess with mixed media. I haven’t posted the sketch because I didn’t want it to be about the ‘start to finish’ but rather just an exercise to let myself go.

So I’ve been a good lil’ doobie.  I finished all my design freelance and I’m almost done my spot for New Moon.  All my postcards have been sent and I ordered a few more of another since they are on sale. You’re so jealous of my multi-taskness.

I thought I’d share this sketch because I’m really happy with the way i was able to express the feeling of the mixed media.  I’ve been struggling with that and even though it’s never caused any problems with publishers in the past, I really wanted to attack the challenge of conveying my plan in my sketches.

And here it is in all it’s iky-gooky, waxy-melty, skratchy-burn-y-ness.  My Halloween card this year to my peeps.  I had so much fun on this piece I think I blacked out a couple times. The cops showed up and told me to keep the party down and wipe the drool of my chin.
