baby books...

I love baby books. the simple shapes and minimal text. Usually bright colors. This is a little different technique for me. I learned this from Lisa Glanz's skill share class. Link below

I like a lot about this but I still not happy with how my sketch ends up looking flat. Maybe I need to add shadows?

I have to also give a shout out to Christophe Jacques who I discovered on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/atelier_la_fermette/ which led me to an article about his process and using the technique of adding scanned paper images to give depth to your work. 

Another favorite of mine is http://dawnmachell.co.uk/

I just love how not realistic her art is. I get so hung up on things not being in proportion, not looking realistic and then I remind myself of her work and how fun and playful it is. Her eyeballs are never lined up perfectly but usually very askew. And I love it!
