Grandma's quite the quilter

Here is a project that I was working on a couple months ago for a company called Urban Threads. They are an embroidery company who house a bunch of illustrators who make vector illustrations that are later translated into stiched patterns. I worked with an in-house illustrator who ended up taking the first design of the six samples you see on the bottom, and digitizing it in illustrator to the specified requirements of their machines. Then they sent me this bag with my design on it...check it out!

And also check out Taylor Smith's blog in my inspiration links...he works there, and is a very talented artist...thanks for the opportunity Taylor!

 the top page is more studies of Labyrinth, and then the rest are self explanatory. I draw heads a lot...and I like to keep the hair off until the end. I believe if you can draw a strong design without the hair, then the design of the hair will accentuate that well. I am trying to use more reference photos, as it is clear that my approach is at a stand-still. That is the best thing about art, you will learn forever.
