Woohoo it has arrived!
Can you remember, I was telling you guys about a project I was working on right? It is for a close friend of mine from Italy and I thought it would be a nice surprise to create something nice for him...with my own illustrations. We usually have conversations about Elvis the Duck and Cat the Spy, chocolate and missions. So, I thought it would be fun to pick a few of them and to create a illustration and place it on a mug ^_^! What a fun way to start your morning haha (or am I the only one who thinks like this?)
Voila! This is the final result of all the sketches together:
I made the drawings on paper and colored them with watercolor. Then I used technology! The scanner and also used Photoshop to edit it here and there (with the help of little bro of course! cause all the layers confused me...so in the end he did most of the work. But I designed a logo a few days back and I did it all by myself, so I was really happy, because I'm getting better at it haha)
And now let's see how the mug turned out. You might need to enlarge the picture, so you can see it in more detail.
I have to say that I'm very happy that it isn't printed as a picture, but it's really embedded in the mug. So it's seamless! Have to say, it looks quite good haha.
What do you think about it??!
I have to say that due to circumstances, he will receive his present a bit later than planned...but hey to receive a mysterious package from Holland with a Belated Birthday Present can be a lot of fun....if he likes it that is. Okay, I hope my sisters won't read the post now...cause they are really excited about the mug. Don't get me wrong, I'm happy about it, but I always have this thing, this feeling that I can do better -_-''... and everytime I say this to my friends, they look like they just want to slap me. And no I'm not doing this to get compliments...it's just the way it is. Yes I'm very tiring.
Oh I'm still working on a few other small projects. A few are birthday related, and a few 'thank you's' (For example the Bond Lady card). So I'll keep you posted on that! I just have to remind myself, not to send the link of my blog to the receivers before they get their presents! Yes in my enthusiasm I might forget that....
Thanks for stopping by and commenting!
Till next time!
PS: The logo design I mentioned earlier. I will tell you about that in another post! I need to edit it.
PS II: I'll just say it again, just as a reminder (because I already have a note on my blog and the inscription on my drawings). All the photo's and illustrations/drawings are copyrighted by me! So if you are planning do to something with it, just wait & let me know!
