28/10/13 - Finally finished!
This is the finished version of a painting that I have been working on in secret for the majority of two weeks. It forms one in a collection of three paintings that I have composed for ohhdeer.com’s cushion competition.
Ohh Deer's artists design quirky fashion and lifestyle surface illustrations that are sold on a variety of products from greetings cards to cushions. Many of the designs are humorous and lighthearted in nature. On this vein, and concentrating on food and humour as a theme, I used wordplay and the placement of typography to produce an amusing set of illustrations that could be used in the home or kitchen.
I am particularly happy with the colour outcome of these designs as I spent a good deal of time planning out and testing different colour palettes before resulting in these colours.
As soon as I have access to an A0 scanner, I will be putting this up online at ohhdeer.com, where you can vote for me if you’d like to see my designs win! :)
