IF: Orange

Here if my submission for this weeks Illustration Friday.  Anyone who knows me know that I hate everything about orange.  The flavor, the fruit, the color...everything!  So when I saw that this week's topic was 'Orange', I thought this little doodle was very fitting.

Inspiration, a need for change, and a doodle

I've been in somewhat of an artistic block lately.  Maybe artistic block isn't the correct word.  Maybe what I'm trying to say is I'm bored.  I've been using color pencil for years now, and I'm starting to yearn for something new.  I've been super inspired lately by Fran Meneses's work, who uses mainly markers.  After watching almost all her youtube videos, and doing my own research on markers, I decided to take the plunge and finally order a few.  I also ordered a brandy new sketch book.  This is the first time in a while that I bought new art supplies.  I'm super excited, and ready to experiment with something new and really develop my style even more.  

And since I can't really post something without a doodle, here is a little color pencil doodle I made.  This might be my last color pencil doodle for awhile.  Hopefully I can get the hang of my new markers, and am looking forward to posting new work soon!  Stay tuned!

Gina Land is on Facebook!

Since there was no new topic for Illustration Friday this week, I decided to finally create a Facebook page for Gina Land!  Since most people these days have and regularly use Facebook, I figured this would be a good way for those who are interested in my work to follow along!  This is where I will be posting about new blog posts and any updates to my work in general.

IF: Childhood

So I'm back!  I took a couple months off from blogging to get back into the swing of things.  It's not always easy being a full time working mama, and most nights I just want to spend with my bud, but I was able to work out more of a schedule to where I can devote a little time each night to doodling before bed.  I thought Illustration Friday was a good place to start!  My plan is to participate in this every week.  I'm hoping to develop more of a style to my work and to also experiment more with water color.  Here is my doodle for the theme Childhood, done in my favorite medium...color pencil.

Even though I took some time off from the blogging world, I have been doodling here and there in my sketchbook.  If you follow me on Instagram you will see some of the doodles I've done in the past couple months.
