Swing into Spring!!

New style=new freedom!

I'm creating a promotional pop-up greeting card. It's a modernization of Fragonard's The Swing.
Her swing will have actual twine ropes for a touch of mixed media and added dimension. This is the most stylized I've been in a final illustration, and I am so excited about how it's turning out!

I had Anita from Disney's 101 Dalmatians in the back of my head as I drew this girl. I love the art direction of that movie. Come to think of it, the greenery gives a bit of a nod to Sleeping Beauty. I guess I'll never escape my Disney influences. :o]

I'm back. And it's bitter sweet.

Vacation was amazing.
My fiance is the greatest man in the world.
He's working on building a game prototype. Follow its progress.

I'm back in classes, and it's a strange time. Graduation is about 10 weeks away.
The future is bright, but also stressful.
For now, I'm still jet-lagged.
So, goodnight.
