Not only have I been working on new Christmas and Inspirational art, but I have a new elegant, whimsical design collection for at licensing that I'm very excited about! I can just imagine so many different products these designs would be perfect for, everything from stationery to home decor. I started out with a butterfly design, then a peacock and now adding hummingbirds and there will be dragonflies and more to come!
Here are some sketches of more peacocks and hummingbirds, always fun to show the beginning stages of new art. I think it would be perfect to complete a collection of 12 different whimsical designs to create a calendar, hmmmmm....got me thinking of what other icons/elements of animals, etc. I can use...Stay Tuned!!
It always seems odd to be painting holiday specific or seasonal art that really isn't in season, but so goes the life of an artist in the licensing world! But, I don't mind in the least, I enjoy breaking out of the ordinary and mixing it up, and I did just that last week and this weekend with 5 new collections for Christmas and winter :)
One of the top requests for new art I received at the Surtex Licensing Show last month was to create more, more and more Christmas art! I don't think I will ever have enough, but I will certainly try. Coastal and inspirational were the next two top requests, I've created a couple of inspirational and will be working on more coastal as well over the next few weeks and months, so stay tuned!
In the meantime, here are the new collections just created, all of which are available for licensing across all product categories. And...I also have poinsettias painted and ready to create new designs with, so this will be available shortly. To see all of my Christmas images click here. Have a Wonderful "Christmas in June"!
