Rough artwork for my next growth chart design.
Wow, my week has been great. Sales on my online shops selling nursery art have been brisk. So, I am juggling kids, painting, packing and delivering orders, blogging and twittering!
This week on the creative side - I want to create two new illustrations for my growth chart range. I am starting with a circus growth chart and am undecided about the second growth chart illustration. The first illustration I have been painting is on a circus theme, I have been illustrating it for over a week now and still have a lot more work to do.

You can see a very early rough of my illustration above. This shows you how I start my ideas. I work over and over on a black and white rough until my layout is decided. I then start to paint in the black and white line. For my growth charts I us traditional paint methods with adobe photoshop. I paint the image first and then I add the cm and inches with the adobe photoshop. For this circus growth chart I am also separately painting some animals to run along the side of the chart and these too will be added by adobe photoshop.
I will show you the rough to final art work at a later date. (When I have managed to finish it!)
For my UK clients - I am having a great sale at the moment on my kids wall art site and there is 20% discount on some of my growth charts.
