Being an artist, it’s only a matter of time before I’m called on to do the occasional project for a friend or family member. In this case, I designed a header for my wife’s blog.
Since I had purchased my wife a vintage, pink Royal typewriter, she wanted to feature it in the image. As you can see, the two rough doodles are not as graphic (flat and cartoonish) as the final design, which is what you see at the bottom.
Unlike myself, my wife likes to change things on occasion, so she requested I do seasonal versions of the final design, which she then can swap out throughout the year (and I’ll be getting to that soon enough). I don’t mind her making such requests … it’s better than being asked to paint the house.
