The Butterfly Girl has evolved so much since I first started sketching her in 2010. Here’s one of the two finished variations below. The other one variation will be posted later on or if you like, you could look for it on my Facebook page. Look below for some process work.
Some process work:
I’m sure all the Ladies have already read or heard of the Fifty Shades Trilogy by E L James somewhere. In May, Businessweek Magazine contacted me to illustrate for an article which was about the success of the erotic novel and how this book has stimulated the sales of entry level S+M toys, which are up from last year something like 20-30% in some places. At the time when I received the project, I knew little about the novel and less about S+M toys. I did my research of course and boy, was I in for a treat…
So, here were my initial sketches:
The Art Director went with the 2nd concept from the left. Below is the process work:
I had the wonderful opportunity to illustrate for More Magazine again. This article was about how to disguise a “Midlife Middle” while still dressing fashionably. One of the advices was to accessorize with a belt. If you look below to my process, you can see the integration of the belt as I move to final. I find that sometimes inspiration hits me half way through my process. Does that ever happen to you?
As you can see, I have 2 variations of the final illustration. The Art Director liked the blue one but the yellow one remains my favourite. If you enjoyed this post, let me know below!
