WORN Fashion Journal Illustration

The lovely WORN intern, Marsya Maharani, asked me to contribute an illustration to the latest issue of WORN Fashion Journal. I love WORN! So I was very happy to do this. Above is a photo of my process.

Even though the final would be in black and white, due to the nature of my paper cut out style, I used some colour.

And here's the final with the haiku!

The La La Land Digs of Ms. Melody Drummand

Brand new, completed dollhouse illustration!

I'm super pleased to present the latest illustration in my ongoing dollhouse series. I posted about this earlier in relation to Alexis & Sam Music Productions. I have now completed the final details of the piece and an 11 x 17 print is now available in my Etsy store.

It was so fun to create this piece. I wanted to add elements to give that old Hollywood feel. I included the creature from the Black Lagoon, the bones of Jaws and Clint Eastwood on the silver screen. And all the little musical instruments were carefully image researched and cut out. You can find an acoustic guitar, tuba, bass clarinet, 2 electric guitars, violin, banjo, cello, trumpet, piano and alto clarinet.

Now what sort of dollhouse to do next?

Here's a fun set of illustrations I did for R.E.A.L the Canadian Kids' magazine. It was art directed by Erica Rodriguez and the wonderful poem was written by Kurt Metzler.
