Beautie for Valentines Day

Happy Valentines day from Barclay-Studio!

I am still grateful for the opportunity to design this and other bow ties for Beauties Ltd. of Vermont. I had an infinity scarf made for my wife with this pattern on it as well. We match today.

Reworking a past personal project and other thoughts on productivity

I have set some goals again to do more art work. Overall, I have been good about making time to draw on a daily basis. The next step is to complete more illustrations. This is proving to be more difficult as my day gets away from me often because of other responsibilities. I find that scheduling an hour or so a day to work is really helpful.

Today I started to rework one of the “A is for Alliteration” illustrations as it was just not working. This one is for the letter B. The first time I worked on it, it was too rushed. Now I am spending time making sure I am happy with how I am depicting different characters. Trying to get the positioning of the elephant with the bagpipes was proving to be rather difficult. The best way to solve it is through multiple sketches. Trying different things.

More from my sketch book

A few more sketches of people. This was while I was at Positive Pie in Montpelier, Vermont. It is a great Pizza Place.

My go to pencil it a 3H. The latest leads that I got are harder than they have been in the past. It feels more like a 4H. I am wondering if I got a mixed batch.
