For week 2 of Lilla Rogers' Make Art That Sells class we had to design our own plate collection with a botanical theme. I started out with lots of sketches and then decided to paint different pieces with watercolor and acrylic ink. Next I scanned them in and assembled them on the computer.
This assignment was definitely a challenge (I played with SO many different arrangements) and ended up submitting the top design for the class. It was fun creating the art for this and I plan to work with it more to create a pattern design too.
I just completed Week 1 of Lilla Rogers Studio School, Make Art That Sells. The class so far has been incredible and I feel so lucky to have this opportunity. I'm so excited to learn, stretch my creative bones and work hard to create new art. The topic for this week was bolt fabric. I'm really pleased with how my Retro Kitchen pattern turned out!
Fun news today! I drove up to Vancouver, WA this morning to see samples of my first licensing deal with McSteven's Gourmet Gifts. They have transformed my Portland art print into adorable packaging for three new flavors of cocoa! Chocolandia, Tree Hugging Hazelnut and Rose City Vanilla Bean!
