I am anything if not artistic.
However photography is only one of my three main creative outlets, one is composing music on the piano, and the other- is drawing. =)
I've been drawing much longer than I've been doing photography. I studied art and drawing all through my school years, but of course, it really all started when I could first hold a pencil. ;)
The recent acquisition of a set of Prismicolor pencils in April has enabled me to create higher quality artwork and spurred me on to new heights in my drawings:
Many pictures are entirely my own, like the ring and flower above, and the others are usually pictures I've found on pinterest and tailored to match the personal preferences of the friends and little girls I draw birthday cards for. In fact, 85% of the drawings in this post were for birthday cards! ;)
|My kind of "bubble" lettering...! ;D|
Then there's my Penguin drawings . . .
In the realm of painting I do mostly watercolor . . .
But I've found that I really, really really, like the style of Bob Ross, and Leonid Afremov using Oil paints. I don't have any oil paints, but that didn't stop me and my colored pencils! ;D
...but how does Zazzle fit in with this post? In fact, you're probably wondering "What IS Zazzle?"
If your're familar with Etsy, the place to buy handmade anything & everything from independant sellers, Zazzle is similar, with the the biggest difference being that Zazzle has blank objects, and you (the seller) have graphic designs, text, photos or drawings to decorate the blanks with.
They have pillows, clocks, mugs, dog clothes, hats, postage stamps, mouse-pads, phone cases, necklaces, magnets, scarves and pretty much everything but forks and couches! ;) and it isn't limited to sellers- you can print your Christmas cards there, or design your own phone case. =)
I originally started a shop there to put my photos on things, but now I'm going to add in some handrawn card designs, similar to the couple below:
Hope you enjoyed this post! Thanks for looking!
I'll keep you posted on the progress of my humble, little, shop. ;)
