“The Tiger” on Redbubble

Pen and watercolor drawing of a running tiger

There’s a new design in my Redbubble artist shop. The design is based on a Bengal tiger pen and watercolor that I drew as one of my daily drawings.

My wife is a Clemson football fanatic and the tiger is Clemson’s mascot, so I felt compelled to create this monument to orange and purple!

Visit Redbubble, to get the Tiger as a sticker, art board, t-shirt, scarf, and many other items.

Redbubble Artist Shop

I’m pleased to announce that my Redbubble artist shop is officially open.

Redbubble is an online marketplace that enables independent artists to sell their creations as quality print on demand products. I spent a couple months comparing competing print on demand platforms before selecting Redbubble to host my favorite illustrations. Using Redbubble’s manufacturing services my designs can be produced as framed prints, phone cases, tote bags, tapestries, stickers, clothes, and many other items.

I invite you to visit my Redbubble artist shop to see if there’s something you might enjoy!

Thank you,
-Dan

Portrait of Linwood

High-Contrast Portrait

In the past month, something has “clicked” for me with my drawings in Illustrator. I’m not sure why it took this long, but I’ve finally graduated from visualizing my drawings primarily as contours/outlines (think of the black outline around most comic and cartoon art), and have shifted to looking at the shapes and contrasts between light and shadow.

This portrait of my wife is based on a photo from our 2014 trip to Toronto. Drawing faces is a big challenge for me (need to spend more time with the sketchbook), but I’m pleased with the way my first Illustrator portrait turned out.

Regal Tuxedo Kitty

Our now departed Kordell Kitty (2014) was a handsome cat. He had tuxedo markings, which brought to mind high social standing, secret agent espionage and royalty. What a nice way to remember him.

In truth, Kordell was not a cat about town. He rarely left the house and was scared of his own shadow. Here’s the source photo for Kordell’s portrait. I think he’d just woken up from a nap, so he looks pretty alert for a cat who spent most of the day in a “coma.”
