alright, don't laugh ; ) but this was my attempt at sketching out this idea I had of a really cool girl carrying some fabric and her sewing machine. I contacted Brooke, who has a wonderful shop on etsy full of beautiful illustrated artwork, and asked her if she could do a custom design for me. She said yes and got right to work.
Here are a couple of rough sketches Brooke did. When she sent the first set of images over it was almost perfect. The only changes I wanted to make were to take away her smile, and I wanted the sewing machine to show instead of it being in a case.
after the artwork was finalized, it was time to add color.
This was the final image that I decided on until I started shopping around for a screen printer. Come to find out, we had way too many colors and it would have been way to difficult to print every color : (
I would hate to see her go to waste so I'm thinking about doing some note cards/stationary with this print.
We changed the color palate to something a bit more simple and voila!! She's ready to be printed on to some fabric so that I can make some tote bags : ) Now, if only I can come up with a name for her. Any suggestions?
Thanks again Brooke for all that you've done. You are very easy to work with and your quick responses to e-mails are much appreciated!
