LF Shadows Series is a personal illustration project in progress – exploring shadows with members of my family. I have just finished this one, of my husband, James.
I really need to work on illustrating faces, it’s such a weak spot for me! But practice and time will help. This is why it is so important to undertake personal projects – it not only improves your skills, but it allows you to express your personal style, entirely unhindered.
James was quite pleased to see I had even included his Apple watch and socks! It’s these little touches that make it personal. Also, the choice of lavender as the background fill also holds meaning – it’s one of his branding colours for JF Music Studio. You can see the branding suite I created for his business over on my portfolio.
Below, my final illustration of the series is of my daughter Amelia. I may revisit the series later and include our cat, ha! But we will see. I quite like how this one captures her personality. She loves her bright yellow shoes.
Below are little miss Alice, one, and the first of the series, a self portrait of myself. Alice is depicted with her cute little baby pot-belly in her favourite Nike kicks and well, I’m pretty much always wearing the same outfit (which is another story for another day)!
I hope you’ve enjoyed this series as much as I have. Stay tuned for more updates soon.
