Today I thought I would share some of the sketches I did while working on the new line of prints, from preliminary drawing to final print. Some designs take several tries to get them right, and some go straight from first sketch to final carving with no revisions. Below are some original sketches and the prints they turned into:
Half of the watercolor painting that was the basis for the 2013 Calendar
A few sketches that haven't yet made it to print form.
The sketch and final print of this card
The preliminary sketch for this scarf, this card, and these journals
The sketch for this card, these journals, these coasters and this tea towel
A second sketch for this scarf
The first idea for this card
