When I saw the week's Illustration Friday word, I knew this project was doubly appropriate. Above is my 18" doll pattern design for an 1812 day dress--check it out at my sewing pattern website!
Below is the 1812 "roller print" style pattern I designed for the 1812 day dress sewing kits available on Etsy. It started off as an ink sketch which I scanned and tweaked so the pattern would repeat smoothly. It's super fun to see it printed on fabric at a doll-sized scale!

Recently I re-read Howl's Moving Castle and thought, "What if Sophie trimmed a hat for herself? What sorts of enchanted things would she tell it?" I imagine it would be something like this. Howl isn't amused.
Pen and ink with an ink wash. I hope to give it some digital color one of these days.

|Ink & Watercolor|
It's been a while since I posted, but I've been busy traveling this spring/summer--and giving a few watercolor lessons as I go. Yikes! As someone who learned watercolor mostly by trial-and-error, that can be a little intimidating. :)
