Etsy Friday - My days

It seems like I have taken a long vacation from my blog. But I'm back now :)

August has been tip toeing behind my back while I'm busy off at my projects. It is already the middle of August. Another two more weeks, I will be at another different place with different time zone. Before that, there are so much things to do yet I feel like savouring every second I'm having right now.

Early of the month, I was invited to join Baetulona Project - a group exhibition to portray the most important historical moments in the city of  Badalona and its most famous characters. It was a great challenge to try something that I have never done before (Thank You). 
My given theme was Vicenç Roca i Pi, a merchant who had donated all his fortune to the poor people in Badalona (such a nice guy!). He was honored with a monument that represented him and was placed in the middle of La Rambla de Badalona.
Due to the closing deadline, I have to finish it in less than few days but the etching part took me almost 28 hours (It was a massive size indeed), it was fun and I kinda like how it turned out eventually with the subtle moonbeam, glowing balloons and the little boy's smiley face. If you are interested to look at the process and details, you can find them HERE.

Next week, I will be rushing another two more projects which hopefully can finish them before the end of the month. Of course, I will not be missing any of my girl illustrations as well =p

I have uploaded another notecard to my Whimsy Whimsical Paper Goods :) Even though she was one of my early sketches (like in February?) but I still like her a lot. She is still waiting for her true love - her only prince. Hope she will find him very soon. 

Weekend is around the corner yet I'm still very busy with a lot of things. Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend :)

  1. Wow! Your illustrations are fantastic! Have a great weekend!

  2. That to me sounds a tough brief to produce a design for. And yet you have come up with such a delightful design. I love the way you have the monument as the moon and the way you've captured such movement in the different birds flying.
    Done in grey it could seem sad and scarey to the children but there is a safety about the piece. The children seem to be having a magical journey and enjoying the light from the moon.
    Beautiful Yee Von!
