Challenge 52: Fallin’ in ________
Hi everyone! First off, thanks again for letting me join in on this party, I’m excited to be here!
So, CHALLENGE 52! Is to embrace Fall because, let’s face it, Autumn is a pretty big deal. From first days of school, to the burning of flip flops and swim trunks, let us see what Fall looks like in your city or hometown! And GO. XO!
We have exciting news!
As some of you may know we recently held a call for entries on our Facebook page for a new member. We wanted to thank everyone who sent us emails about joining, y’all were all beyond talented (which made it super hard for us to pick just one!).
However, we are happy to announce that the lovely Annelise Capossela will now be a permanent member of Square Carousel! We can’t wait to see what she produces while she’s a part of our group <3
We’re super excited to have you, Annelise!
Challenge 51: Spirit Animal: Blue Crab
I don’t think that a Blue Crab and I are necessarily aligned in our personalities or demeanor. Though it is the animal I probably have had the most interesting bond with in my life. Its always been an activity I’ve really enjoyed with my family. And now that I live on the coast it takes up a large portion of my free time.
Challenge 51: Spirit Animal: Hummingbird
So after much consideration I chose a hummingbird as my spirit animal. I’ve really been enjoying doing things with patterning in it lately and busting out some traditional materials again so that’s what I did. I remember now how heavy handed I am with colored pencil burnishing. Color palette was completely spur-of-the-moment and flowers absolutely suck to draw and I have no idea why I did that! :D
Challenge 51: Spirit Animal: Rabbit
I originally planned on re-drawing my original Spirit animal illustration from way back when, but ultimately decided against it. Went with a more light hearted and fun little illustration with some 90’s high school flare ;P
Also tried to use a limited color palette but it went real pink REAL FAST (but I’m oki with that).
challenge 51: spirit animal (sun bear)
i thought long and hard about this challenge, quite honestly. i asked around, what do you think? most people responded ‘sloth’- i’m going to just assume that’s because of my love for them, and has nothing to do with my habits. but! i kept settling on the sun bear, or spectacled bear. this bb is the smallest of the bear family, yet still fierce when their territory is compromised. i mean… i really do spend most of my life lazing and sleeping, but the claws do come out. or something like that.
