This is the first monogram that I’ve done where I’ve taken the design through a full inking, working out design decisions and such before committing it to glass. The glass one won’t be as tightly detailed as this, but I’ve got all the major decisions made so it should be a relatively simple transfer. This is also the most themed one that I’ve done, per a special request from a family member.
This is a recent illustration I did for my sister to give to her sister-in-law as a gift celebrating the birth of their new baby girl, Sadie. It’s also a poem that’s taught in grade school, and children are asked to draw what they hear described to them from the poem. So this is my interpretation. I haven’t done anything this kid friendly since I drew the cute monsters for my daughter’s nursery.
Been doing a lot of painted glass monograms lately. They have been quite fun and I’m actually not too bad at them. I’m working on finding someone who can build be custom frames from raw materials too so that I can stop going to art stores and buying frames on sale.
I’ve been working on some more “crafty” pieces lately, trying to sell some stuff. I’ve started doing monograms and designs painted on glass, and framed in shadow boxes. They are coming along nicely. I’ve got stencil making materials coming soon so that I can transfer my designs onto pallet wood signs I’m building also.
This one is 10×10, white paint pen and metallic gold accents.
