Here is an illustration for the San Diego Lantern Festival that published last month. I got the go ahead to have fun with this one - they don't all have to be conceptual! Yippee! I decided to play around with watercolors. I painted and played around with shapes and colors -yes, it was a blast. Then I scanned all the textures and pasted them into lantern shapes I made in Illustrator. The end result was a beautiful and textural light show. At least that is what I decided. It did get me away from the computer for an afternoon. That is success in my book! I hope you all can enjoy time away from your computers too! Happy day!
