I started drawing this digital illustration a few days ago. I was inspired by my friend Jenni, who is working on illustrations for a children’s book. Her latest endeavor has been working on the #100dayproject keeping all of her illustrations based around the idea if she lived in a castle. Cute, right!?!
The little girl in the illustration was not originally going to be me, but as I drew her, she felt more and more like me. That’s why I ended up putting a pup in her arms too. She’s just like my sweet pup who is always by my side.
When I worked on the darker background the previous day, I really liked it, but then the next day when I opened up the file, I was thinking to myself, “geez, this is so gloomy!” If this girl is supposed to be me, I don’t like gloomy days. I mean we all have them, whether they are in the literal sense or not. The idea of having the Sun peeking out behind a gloomy day with beautiful blue skies felt just right to me. The words came to me shortly thereafter.
Please inquire if you would like an art print of this illustration.
