A New Venture Into Art Licensing

After many years of creating art for my own pleasure, occasionally putting a piece up for sale on Etsy or eBay,  I've decided to give Art Licensing a go.

I am currently working on developing my brand and portfolio for that market and enjoying every minute of this new creative process that uses both my drawing and painting talents, but my graphic design talents, as well.

I find I am most interested in surface design for home decor and products. Although I am open to any opportunities and challenges that may come my way,  my focus for now will be on surface design and patterns.

Below are samples of what I've been up to.  


I've been developing designs that incorporate fruits and vegetables. I hope to create some wall art illustrations to complement them.

Each fruit or vegetable was drawn individually in colored pencil and then scanned in Photoshop. From there I arranged them in floral shapes and other graphic designs.


I took that one step further and created a similar collection of pasta.


The longer I play around with building collections, the more ideas I get for others.


The fruit, veggie and pasta collections are all available on a wide array of products on RedBubble.com



Happy creating!
Diane

designing book covers for indie writers!

Hey everyone! Happy New Year!

I haven't been posting much these past few months because I have been delving into some new creative mediums, such as book cover design.
As an avid reader, I have been having a great time trying my hand at designing book covers for indie writers who are looking for affordable book covers for their self-published novels.
I create everything from traditional romance to erotic sci-fi!
If you yourself are interested or know a writer who needs cover art, check out my new portfolio page on selfbpubookcovers.com! I am always adding new art almost daily as ideas come to me.
Let me know what you think! I always welcome constructive feedback!
