Well, i hope i made your screens look a little more pink today! It’s never too late to start preparing for Valentine’s Day and this week i’m updating my Hand Drawn Sticker Pack App with some more hearts and love notes. And while in the mood, i was eager to start working on the next illustration project. Flamingos always fascinated me with their bright colours, and i thought they’d be easy enough to draw. This ended up giving me a hard time to complete, as the feathers were so complicated.
I had to gather loads of reference photos for these beauties, but in real life they didn’t quite look as i imagined them. So i mixed up a few different types of flamingos into one, and i’m hoping nobody will notice.. With this one, i cannot wait to get my hands on Jason’s nursery prints! I feel like illustrating all kinds of animals and woodsy landscapes in order to match the mood we’re going for.
My main flamingo guy turned into several patterns, and without wanting to overwhelm you, here are 5 of my favourites to download as wallpapers. Enjoy!
