The Deep Blue Sea (on Etsy)

This blog is about etsy, illustration, and design. It has the same name as my Etsy store, which you can check out here , though it never got off the ground, I do have some good favorites saved that you might enjoy.

I also just started a new blog of my artwork created with a brilliant iPad app named Paper. Check it out if you haven't already.

Enjoy!

I’m really enjoying working in smaller panels. I think one of the hardest things working with paper is having no brush control size - which means filling the whole page with watercolor is a pain for your hands (and sanity if you have to rewind after making a mistake). Not to mention the annoyance of flipping the page when you just wanted your art to go to the edge.
Smaller panels solve that problem, and they’re actually more fun anyway - you end up playing rather than trying to create something more finished.

Pinhegg, created by Francesco Capponi, is a pinhole camera crafted from an eggshell. The “camera” is only good for one shot and must be sacrificed in order to reveal the image.
