A falling star fell from your heart and landed in my eyes

Busy, busy, busy. Thats what I have been as of lately. So without further ado, here is some of that busy.

First and foremost is a cover I did for the NOV/DEC issue of the Children's Magazine, Muse. I love how it turned out and it was my first time using my rapidographs on a final. I am in love with them now and have no idea why I didn't buy a set sooner. It gave me the line quality I've only ever dreamed of with microns.
Next was a third Burlesque poster I did for my favorite local Chicago troupe. I went with fall colors, as Chicago is starting to get prettty chilly. The first image is just a little fun I had with it without the type. I think I actually prefer the type version.

I really enjoy laying out and hand lettering my own fonts.

And last but not least is two of three pieces I did for another client about being able to escape daily life and relax. I didn't end up really happy with these, but I don't think I could've done the above pieces if I hadn't struggled through these.

Thats it for now! love love.

Megan, that bird is absolutely unbelievably gorgeous. Well done! Glad you like the rapidographs. I haven't used mine in a couple years (since my comic for Junior Thesis!) and desperately need to clean them out...

You already know how much I love that beautiful bird! And you also already know I am a fan of your burlesque ladies. I hadn't seen the retreat pieces yet though, and they are wonderful! I love seeing you do backgrounds like this. Your line work just keeps getting better and better!

Nice bird! Certainly friendlier and funner than Sam & I's bloodbath, haha. I think it'll stand out when seen from across the room (and then when you get closer, you get all those crazy feathers to look at!) Niceeee. :) I've never used rapidographs before, but I'm glad they're working for you. Seeing how you're incorporating some texture into your drawings is interesting, it works well for the feathery skirt your burlesque lady has, which makes me want to see texture used in more places too....all around, cool stuff!
