I had a great show last weekend and that has left me scrambling to refill product before this weekend. Today I’m trimming the laminate from bookmarks.
I think this represents about 10 solid hours of drawing cherry blossom petals and none of this will be seen in the final product.
This inked page will be taped onto my light board where I will use it as a guide to transfer it with color pencils. I expect that will probably be another 30 to 40 hours. Those of you who’ve been watching me for at least 6 months might remember flightless flora which took 30 hrs to color. This piece has more petals I’m pretty sure. Oh no, now I want to count them.
I believe I originally called this squid badge but squid have pointed heads.
That moment when you realize you will need to fix something like 400 flower pedals.
There are notes around the outside about which color of petal will be used at different locations.
Since it is a relatively small change in shape I’ll just fix it at the ink stage.
