Mats Week 2: Baby Apparel

Last week we worked on baby apparel designs with a camping theme. I have to say, it was very fun and I learned a lot along the way. My process for this design started with pencil sketches, then brush drawings on tracing paper before I scanned it all in. I usually work in Photoshop but this time, I thought I should work in Illustrator and mix things up. I'm getting used to Image Trace now and was happy with line quality. I really, really enjoyed making whimsical characters such as the silly bug. It seems like this is right up my alley since I make a lot of greeting cards in this type of style. I'm excited about the possibilities in this new market!
