These are a few illustrations I did for my portfolio–inspired by Illustration Friday. If you are generating new portfolio pieces or just have time to experiment, IF is a great exercise for your brain. I like to start with words that spread ideas like webs, and Images naturally follow. When I do sketches for clients, I usually give bunches of thumbnails for concepts, then more developed sketches thinking about composition and value. And, if they need one, a color rough. Since these were for fun, I let them happen a bit more organically.
