Girls in Love

I’m participating again in the Arthouse Co-op’s Sketchbook Project—this time for the 2012 “Limited Edition”, which will include publication in a book the Co-op will publish in the Fall of 2012.


This time around I choose the theme “Pictures and Descriptions”; Afterall, that’s pretty much what illustration is all about, right?


It also seemed that this theme would lend itself to a good opportunity to combine & experiment with lettering + images together. After a lot of thought about where to derive my content from, I decided I wanted to keep it light-hearted and fun. I found some really sweet and inspiring quotes on love, and felt they would be a perfect pairing with some of the dreamy girls I love to draw.


And on a personal level, this felt like an interesting concept to evolve to, considering I submitted a 2011 Sketchbook Project with the theme of “Great Hopes and Massive Failures”—based on the miserable (but funny!) experiences of dating in the pursuit of love. Since then I’ve been lucky enough to fall head-over-heels in love, so it’s been fun to make some pictures inspired by this wonderful side of it! 🙂


Here’s a few pages:

    These are awesome! I happen to love looking for quotes about all kinds of topics, and it’s so fun to see your illustrations with these!

      Thanks Kel! Was fun finding & deciding which quotes to use—a lot of them just felt natural to make pictures for!
