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.
Remember that photoshop collage/sketch thing I posted a while ago? Well here’s a snapshot of the inking being done for it.
