A lot has been going on in my life lately and I have been very busy finishing book illustration jobs. I have been thinking about how to save my time and work smart and came up with this idea to draw minimally. Children can still relate to it, I am not worried about that.
Anyway, here’s my first naive try. I am sketching in-between work and hope to come up with more actions and maybe a different hair because my Dina character has braided hair.
Sometimes we create a surreal world that we want to live in; a world to make us feel happy where no one is judging.
A break from drawing (since I am doing two illustration jobs on my laptop; digital colouring and vector outlining). Manipulated in Adobe PS. Been a long time since I play with photos. Photos are from my travels.
