52 Week Art Challenge: August

August's art was all about lettering. A personal favorite that should not be too surprising. The cactus design is putting big hearts in our eyes over here. This one is going to be coming to the shop soon!

52 Week Art Challenge: Week 16

Week 16 was all about embracing the messy and trying to loosen up my illustrations. I like tight sketches and clean drawings, so coloring outside of the lines was something new for me. For some reason that messy and imperfect style is something I adore, but struggle with in execution. Baby steps.

52 Week Art Challenge: Week 14

Week 14 finished art for my 52 week art challenge is here with a funky little bouquet. I'm using each week of this challenge to explore new methods, techniques and art styles. This week I wanted to try a new composition with unexpected colors. Trying new methods is the only way we will grow as artists. It's a messy process, sometimes you like what you make and sometimes you don't. And that's ok! It's all part of the journey. I stared at the color on this one for a long time and I'm still not sure it's perfect, but I think that's what I like about it. It has a weirdness that I'm really digging.

52 Week Art Challenge: Week 11

Week 11 birds for my 52 week art challenge. It's been a very busy couple weeks in the studio. I've been working on launching our Mother's Day, Father's Day and Graduation cards. The main page of our website just got a little facelift and a new wholesale catalog is in progress. Phewww. More coffee is in order. Needless to say, it took me a little longer to get my Chickadees done. A very tropical design is in the works already for Friday, so stay tuned. 

I created this week's art first with a sketch on paper then I inked the design with a Micron pen. After that I scanned my art and brought it into Photoshop, where I added color and texture. 

Hop over to Instagram and use the hashtag #spankysartparty to see what everyone has been working on. We have so many people participating now! And it's not too late to join us.

52 Week Art Challenge: Week 9

The weather is starting to warm up here in Charlotte and I can hear the birds chirping outside my window. We're starting March off right with this month's theme: Birds! My personal favorite. 

I created this week's art first with a sketch on paper, then I inked the design with a Micron pen. After that I digitally painted the design with the Procreate app on my iPad. I really love working on the iPad, it's so much fun and it really speeds up the process.

Pickles!

I've been doing a little sketchin' lately, ok a lot of sketchin'. This one started out as a "quick & simple" design for this week's Spoonflower contest. Half an hour max.. I was only going to draw the jar. Haha, right. Four hours later I had an entire page filled with everything the word pickle could bring to mind. I lose hours in my sketchbook. One minute it's 10am and the next thing I know Steve is in the kitchen making dinner. It's a very magical thing. 

This week's sketch hit the scanner and quickly turned into just the darn cutest pickle pattern I've ever seen. I love the little sprigs of dill and the polka dot spices in the background. If you're on Spoonflower, hop over to vote in the contest. It will be open for the next few days before they announce the winner.

Behind the scenes with our Father's Day cards

A behind the scenes view at the making of our new Father's Day cards. I just love the difference between the black and white drawing and the finished art, don't you? It's so exciting to see them come to life.

Don't forget, Father's Day is June 15th! You can find all of our cards here in the shop and also on Etsy.

Follow us on Instagram @jaymesloan for more behind the scene peeks. 

Wishing you a smooth Father's Day

Behind the Scenes with our Easter Cards

I've been having a lot of fun lately documenting the before and after pics of our recent new releases. I think it's so interesting to see the original sketch compared to the final product. Sometimes the drawings are used exactly as I made them and sometimes I put a lot of time into tweaking them digitally before I'm happy with how they look. Don't you just love how the color brings them to life? It amazes me every time. These are some the before and after shots of our new Easter cards.

If you're interested in seeing how I do it, hop over here and get the whole scoop.
