For my Humorous Illustration class, we had to design a greeting card. I was really excited about it, and couldn't wait to get started. Then I found that I had no ideas. Wonderful. It was just one of those days where being creative is a struggle. After making some lousy designs, I came back to this sketch of a dinosaur I had originally tried using for my Cricket Magazine cover for Children's Illustration. I thought it would be a shame not to use this eccentric dinosaur guy in something... so he ended up on this card!
The week this was due was pretty hectic, so I ended up painting him all in one night. I even tried out a technique I had never used before, which isn't always the best idea when you're tight on time. But for some reason, sometimes procrastination suits me well, and I actually produce decent-looking things. This is probably my favorite project from the whole year so far.
