Here’s a recent illustration I made. I had a lot of fun with this one, it’s an idea I always wanted to convey in an illustration, so I’m glad I finally got the time to get it drawn. I included a quick 4 step process, from sketch to final. As you can see, I decided at the end to scrap the background all together and go with something a bit more graphic. I’m happy with the final outcome :) As always, for more process stuff, follow my Instagram page. Thanks for checking in!

After a dark time, I updated my shop with this illustration of Andrew! The illustration is available to be purchased as print, t-shirt, hoodie, sticker and greeting card. As you may know, Redbubble ships wordwide and I think that’s pretty cool.
You can find my work HERE.
I’ve gained so much weight, since I started college. This is shitty.
The Japanese cherry blossom, known as the Sakura in Japanese, is the flower of a cherry tree that is cultivated for its decorative features rather than for cherries (it doesn’t bear fruit). The overwhelming beauty of the cherry blossom bloom has been known and adored for ages. The blooming period is associated with Japanese traditions, culture, aesthetics, and is a bittersweet metaphor for the ephemeral nature of life itself.
The blooming cherry blossoms herald the beginning of the centuries-old Hanami festival – the traditional Japanese custom of picnicking under trees rich with flowering Sakura branches and enjoying this short but striking first breath of spring. The blossoming wave usually starts in Okinawa in January or February and progresses through all of Japan until April or May. The cherry blossom front (Sakura zensen) can be conveniently tracked every year using this calendar.
