Folksy Fox: Letters to Sarah

Happy Tuesday Everyone!

I am doing a personal project that is 52 weeks long. Every week I have a different topic to draw on (which I plan on posting weekly). My first week was a self portrait and this past week was "plant."
I absolutely love drawing trees and decided to copy-cat the Welsh artist, Valeriane Leblond. I love her folk art style and I wanted to try it out.

Draper Temple Painting

My dear sister-in-law got married to her awesome husband in the Draper temple about a month ago and I made this painting for them as they start a home together. I have to say I had a blast making this for them. This is the second time I have painted the Draper temple for newly weds. The first was for a good friend and unfortunately I didn't document it very well. I learned my lesson and I had a photo shoot for this painting and now I am sharing it with you!

Letters to Sarah: Koi

Here is the card I drew for Sarah this week. I copy-catted Japanese illustrator Ryo Takemasa. I really loved his koi, so I did a pen & ink drawing instead of doing a color print like Ryo. Cheers!

Letter to Sarah: Hand Lettering

This past week I thought I ran out of blank cards, so I used one of my favorite stationary card shown below:

Since the card was done, I decided to try my hand at hand lettering the envelope to fit the vintage circus theme. I still have a lot to learn, but I am having fun. :)
