At its core, illustrations are the result of making an image; but, the wonderful swirling whimsy, which floats about that nucleus, is a multi layered striation of wonderment.
Fairy-tale abandonment, worlds without gravity, innocent human hearts and heaven’s creations romping within technicolor forests – pristine aqua blue oceans, home to serendipitous mermaids and all manner of sweetly surreal aquatic friends. Illustrations are tales told and read, with the eyes.
“Art is creating inside the viewport while thinking outside the box.” Muse
Tools for illustration include a variety of pencils (graphite and colored) – all waiting to kiss the parchment. Pens and markers. especially Copic utensils, are on call too. Original illustrations are sold at craft fairs, auction or online. Before they depart the studio, we always assure we have generated digital reproductions. Commissions for Poetic Pastries illustrations have overwhelmingly been for children’s books. A venue that promotes a happy heart!
Kaleidoscopic interpretations of events real and make believe; illustrations resound from the caves of primitive man, whisper to us from the pyramids, echo from ancient scrolls and chant the tunes of primitive native peoples across the land. What could never be understood upon first meeting, through the spoken word – was tasked to the art of illustration. And our team appreciates that!
This genesis artform brings to mind thoughts of hand drawings, sketches and penned creations. With the computer age, these basic foundations of art styles can be enhanced with color, sizing and higher dpi for printing. When this art is rendered with computer assistance; the term digital illustration is quoted. At Poetic Pastries Studio, artwork begins with sketches. Notebook upon notebook are stacked high with Muse’s visions. Ah, there will never be enough time or enough canvas! (keyword ‘illustration’ to find mores samples in the studio’s creative journal)
I was inspired by these sweet little pachyderms! – Vintage from the 1960s – The Etsy seller (VintageByJade) has this write up – “Vintage purple salt glazed ceramic elephant mom and 2 chained babies. Made in Japan by Arnart Creations.”
Aren’t they adorable? Then, out of the blue … I stumbled on this …
So what was a muse to do? Start drawing of course!
Still playing with the hues of the colors. My ‘Edward Elephant” shall be sporting a blue/gray and I really want a rich deep tone for the balloons. Illustration and sketching are always the beginning steps. Since this project will become part of Poetic Pastries wall decor or art print series – the final rendering of my design is going to take place with cgi. Some of you may have experienced the journey of my baby shower invitations and the baby elephant I created for my stationery portfolio; recall Poetic Pastries released her into clipart free common use. Stay tuned to see the finalization of little Eddie – I have ‘high’ hopes!
Ready for the REVEAL? Check out my digital prints shop – Penchant for Pachderms – I am pretty sure this design will have you ‘trumpeting’ accolades!
