Make-over madness

Final favourite with border

The original piece; Vicinary Vixens Vying for Vicennial Vices.

Green...A vintage feel.

Grey...Quite Halloween-y

I wanted to catalog the process of making over this leggy ladies piece. I originally did the piece in acrylic on wood but felt it was overly complex in detail. I've redone this piece in Adobe Illustrator and kept it really simple. Then I experimented with colours and layout. I've decided on the pink with the oval border as a final piece, but I also like the others. I think the design becomes more effective, what do you think?
And, yes I will be putting some new stuff up soon. Even though it may seem so, I don't plan on rehashing my old work forever...

New is Old is New

An old image I have given a face lift. I really liked the poetry of this image but always found it a tad too dull, so have brightened it up. I think it just has enough punch now.
Also, after a solid break from Illustration which lasted for a few months, I am happy to say that I am finally coming into another wave of creativity and productivity. I have been experimenting with collage and water colour, with a looser aesthetic which I can't wait to share with you all. Stay tuned, as I begin cataloging my recent adventures!
