Playing Indoors

Sorry for the delay between posts. Sometimes I get stuck with really big projects that take a while to finish. This would definitely be one of them. This is my submission to Smashing Magazine’s desktop-wallpaper-calendar competition, and it was accepted! There are a ton of way better pieces there, and I’m very proud to have made it into the mix. I’m working on a tutorial to compliment my submission for May, so stay tuned for that action.
For March’s submission I used Les McClaine’s How-to-Color-Like-a-Little-Old-Lady tutorial from Jonny Crossbones. I love the feeling and heart the style injects. I experimented a lot beforehand and this look makes most illustrations and photographs look amazing.
Ciao for now, and thanks for stopping by!
