Inspiration: As an illustrator and cartoonist who frequently works on the computer, I find it really enjoyable to experiment with traditional art supplies. I tend to work on a smaller scale, this piece is 1.5”x1.5”, which allows me to start and finish illustrations in one sitting. I also make sure that any chilly character I've created is adorned with cozy clothes and a warm drink!
