Boreal Chickadee Illustration


Another bird illustration in the beginning stages. Rough sketches first and then I’ll transfer to watercolour paper and begin illustration, most likely with watercolour and coloured pencils.


Currently searching for Caribbean style graphics, deciding on colour scheme and fonts for Bryan and Levi’s wedding invite. I love this stage of the design process! Can’t wait to reveal the rough layout ideas!

Wrapped up another artshow

Today was the closing of the SONSI artshow which was held at the Balls Falls Conservation Area. Next show will be at the Grimsby Public Library later this fall. Hope to see you there!
