Apple Pie Crumble

Ok, I'll admit it. I have a bit of an apple obsession. I eat one almost every day. I crave them and there's nothing more delicious than an apple pie during the holiday season! I found this recipe from the Minimalist Baker which looks amazing. I've illustrated a poster for apple pie crumble as some holiday inspiration for you! You can decorate your kitchen with my artwork here.

I've also made a pattern collection inspired by apple pie. This collection is available for art licensing. Contact me for inquiries!

MATS Bootcamp: The Jelly Assignment

I have spent the week working on my vintage jellies and dessert designs for bolt fabric. It was an interesting process this week for me! I explored drawing and coloring the icons by hand with colored pencils and markers. I also went back to some of my usual techniques where I scan in the drawings separately and then add the textures in Photoshop. I think I still prefer the more digital method as it gives me the most control but I had a lot of fun coloring by hand. I think it's ok to mix them as well. The first designs were more directly related to desserts but I surprised my self with this last design where I brought in my doggie character. I had the most fun designing The Jelly Dogs!! As always, I learned a lot from Lilla and my classmates. It's nice to get feedback from the group! Lilla also gave us a color palette suggestion which had me using a lot more neutrals. I think adding neutrals is a great way to change things up. Overall I'm really happy with my progress this week!
