You know that feeling when you walk outside, soft grass under your feet, flowers blooming, birds singing, the breeze is warm and fragrant, you know its going to be a perfect day and your heart swells with happiness? That is how I felt painting this illustration. It was so refreshing to come back to my whimsical style after doing several design focused illustrations for Minted and West Elm.
I was working for the talented Amanda Eudy of Luma Stitchery. She opened an Etsy shop where she sells her lovely hand-sewn diaper bags. She named her shop "Luma" after her son, Luke and daughter, Emma. (its a combination of their names.) I had a great time working on this illustration and trying to put a little bit of Emma and Luke in there! "Luma" reminded me of the would "luminous" so I wanted her illustration to reflect the light of the moon.
My job was to create a logo and Etsy banner. I will share the banner after it is stitched with its full length and the text is added. I scanned in my line art before painting for her logo. This was a fun job! Thanks Amanda : ) Can't wait to see it all put together!
