sketchbook project: Opening reception in NY

So the sketchbook project's opening reception was on Saturday. It said the reception was from 7pm-10pm so I went there around 8:30pm and I was told I was too late... Soooo all I got was this photo:( I will probably go back another time to actually get in the library and see everyone's work!
Also this show is going around other areas in USA so if you live near these places, you should definitely check it out!

Happy Valentine's Day


Shiho is getting married: Step 1

So I'm getting married. I'm still getting used to this event but I'm very happy! So step 1 as an bride to be and illustrator, is to make the "Save the Date" card. We decided to go with a simple postcard. I won't post the actual save the date design until it's shipped to the guests. So here's some sneak peak (final design looks nothing like this;))

New year new me: Part 2

At the beginning of 2011, I did an illustration of "New Year New Me". And this is part 2. This girl is more direct than the last one. Instead of trying a new process, I tried to repeat the style and process this time. And I think I'm getting comfortable with this style:) I still want to use more lines for the next one.

New Illustration: A girl

I'm officially obsessed with this new illustration style. I was constantly struggling with when and how to use line work for a while. And I think this style is starting to make me be comfortable with limited line work use. Below is the process from sketch to finish.
