I thought of many ideas for the letter X, but in the end I chose an old fashion icon to represent the letter. Maybe it is my Dutch roots or I am motivated by the green movement with it push of wind power.
I came across an old photo of my dad and I at the beach yesterday. It is amazing what a photo helps one to recall. He was helping me brave the waves. He was always there for me to give me support and good advise. A true blue father in every way. I miss him a lot.
For those that don't know me, I am a designer and illustrator. I think mostly in images. I did this illustration above for Lovely Clusters as a pictorial way of introducing myself. Here above and below are my two recent posts of my work. I work in all kinds of media. These two are digital collages. I hope you enjoy. Also for your enjoyment check out some of my favorite links.
Rain played softly on my skylight inspiring this illustration. I keep promising myself to do creative illustrations outside of my day job as a greeting card designer. Some of that rubs of here though. I noticed that what I do at work influences my personal illustrations at home.
I am a designer and illustrator with many years of experience designing in the social expression industry. I have always loved designing and experimenting in all kinds of media my whole life.
When not designing my own work, I work with my husband, illustrator and photographer Norman Drake as co owner of YOURPRECIOUSPORTRAITS.COM.
I would enjoy hearing from you.
