Merry Christmas, my friends! I’m so happy to finally share this newest watercolor illustration with you!
The Christmas Essentials print has been on my ‘can’t wait to make’ list for a while. I did a winter essentials print (found here) to go along with the seasonal essential prints (here is the spring, summer and autumn designs), but the winter print is missing a few of the best parts of Christmas, so it seemed a new print was in order.
I posted my initial sketches on instagram asking for your Christmas must-haves and you all came through! So many fun, christmasy things were mentioned and I had a great time picking my favorites, sketching and watercoloring for the new print.
After I painted the illustrations, but before turning them into digital art, I had the crazy idea to screen-capture the whole process. I put this little video together so you can see how this art print came to be!
Isn’t that fun?! I am not video expert, but I’m pretty proud of myself for putting this together!
I mentioned earlier this week that a group of 11 other talented designers/small business owners have gathered together to give away something great each day for 12 days. Here we are on DAY 5 and – you guessed it! – I’m giving away this new Christmas Essentials print for free!
