IF: Citrus


I made it this week, Hoooray! I'm really happy that I could make some time this week to participate in IF. It's been a little hard lately, I know I keep saying that. This was designed to be the front of a card. It was sketched out on textured lined cream cardstock, outlined in pen, and colored in with watercolor colored pencils. There's some tweakage to be done, but I love how the banner at the top turned out, overall, and being spot-on with the hand-lettering. (I never can get that right.)

Here's another little sketch of something goofy I like to do when eating oranges. :D

Both are nice. I remember sticking the orange peel in my mouth as a kid. You got all the juicey goodness that way.

Looks like a menu cover. Very nice! And who hasn't done the orange-mouth thing? I still do.

Love the tooting geisha, too! :)
