Time for this delicious November tradition again! This year a fluffy bear-phone garnished with golden apples and saucissons made it to celebrate the birthday of my amazing Miss S.
The subject being obviously much more personal and open than my recent illustration work, I started with only an idea for the main character then built up the scene around it with as much spontaneity as possible. I went for sepia toned colours to give the printed birthday card a warm vintage feel. Birthday present included a phone made of apples (I think), some warm and fluffy thingies and an authentic French saucisson. That was for the brief.
The starting point.
The finish line.
