I was asked to be a guest artist for Sakura of America (makers of Pigma Micron, Gellyroll pens, among others). I created a week's worth of intricate drawing using only Sakura products, photographed and created videos of the process. Here are the final images along with the social media captions that appeared alongside them.
I am so excited to share my illustrations with you this week! Almost everything I draw is small and intricate, and you’ll see that I’m a bit flower-obsessed. Stay tuned over the next few days to see the drawings that I created specifically for @sakuraofamerica. Let’s do this!
@littlepatterns here to show you one of my favorite new drawings featuring tons of bugs. I mind them a lot less when they are pretty and patterned. I used the Pigma Professional Brush Point pen again for this, along with #pigmamicron.
My favorite animal woven through tons of pretty leaves and flowers. I love drawing animals that are part-real, part-imaginary and patterned.
Let there be color! You may have noticed that my account, @littlepatterns basically only shows black and white art. I’m a huge fan of #pigmamicron in black, but I’m just starting to explore the colored versions of the pens! What do you think? I love how they help the foreground really jump out from the background.
Confession: I’m obsessed with animal prints. Maggie from @littlepatterns here, with an awesome effect that I achieved by layering a metallic #gellyroll over #pigmamicron linework.
The time has come for me to say goodbye. And with that, one of my favorite typographic characters - the mighty #ampersand. Can you find all 4 hidden creatures?
