My three year old is such a weirdo. I love this about her. She’s a total goober. Case in point, she often wears rubber suction rings from her dinner set on her head as a crown. She eats cold, plain beans for breakfast by choice. She holds conversations with illustrations in books. She’s amazing.
Her interests run wide and deep. She loves dress up, doll houses, monster trucks, baby dolls, pirates, builders, ballerinas, rocket ships, and especially dinosaurs and unicorns. When I saw this week’s #ifdrawaweek prompt was "animal mash-up," I knew just what I would draw!
I made this illustration on my iPad Pro. I have not been exactly enamored with the digital art-making process until recently. I’ve found it awkward and the results fake-looking. But I recently discovered the Adobe Sketch app, and I really love it! There’s still something so satisfying about using real paint, brushes, water, and paper, but this is a great option for certain projects. I also love that this app creates time lapse videos of my process!
If you’re looking for a unique card or print for the goober in your life, this piece will be available in my shop very soon!
