Illustration Friday - SPOTTED


I think I was looking for an excuse to doodle this week...or making a new "Z" for my logo? Either way, this was a fun topic.

Micron pens, brush pens and colored pencils.

NEAT!! LOVE the colors, and the playfulness of the design. FANTASTIC!

Oh, Amy - this is really wonderful! I really, really like the colors, and I just love those groovy circles and dots. It brings me back to my childhood - I had many things in those colors with embellished dot designs. This is delicate and punchy at the same time. I think it would make a great avatar!

Wow, that is a gorgeous Z!!!

Nan said...

Love this Z, but I'd miss the drafting table bit of your existing one if you switched them out.

ValGalArt said...

Hi Amy :-)
Thanks for commenting on my blog!
Yes, that little blue and orange bird is totally made up.
There are some pretty amazing bird here where I live, I should start sketching those too, don't you think?

ZZZzzzzzzzzzzzz......snore....snore...zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz...What? Where am I? Huh? I think I dozed off. Man, I must've been out for like an hour, must be something subliminal in your artwork Amy. Because I know it isn't boring, so your illustrations must be the art world's equivalent to Club and House music. The kind makes people get up and do things that they otherwise would never think of. "You've got to move it....dance, dance, dance...move your body. Now sweat, sweat, uh huh, I said sweat. Sweat like you just ate Indian food! Gooooooooo!!!!!!!"

PS: Cool Zed logo. :D

Angela said...
