Today I’m starting a new illustration project that I’ve been really excited to start sharing with you!
I’ve said before that I consider blogs one of my favorite forms of entertainment–I read so many amazing blogs about fashion, lifestyle, art, interior design–you name it, really! My BlogLovin queue awaits me every morning and I love learning, being entertained, and getting inspired by so many talented, interesting ladies (and gents) daily.
Portraits are one of my favorite things to draw, so I knew when I started blogging myself, I’d want to do a kind tribute series of portraits of some of my favorite bloggers! So here we go!
The first lady I chose to illustrate is Kaylah from The Dainty Squid! I doubt I have many readers who are unfamiliar with Kaylah. She’s quite a popular blogger, and rightfully so. She always shares a plethora of beautiful posts about nature, photography, kitty cats, her amazing brightly colored hair, and her adorable personal style.
How could I not be just dying to draw Kaylah first, right?! She’s so cute and full of unique personality, her portrait came very easily. :) It was actually difficult to reign myself in and not go crazy with details that remind me of her style. Flowers and mushrooms were obvious choices, but I kind of wanted to go nuts with cats, teeth, leaves, and insects!
My Big Book of Cats series will still go up every Wednesday at 9am, but I’m choosing to not commit to a strict schedule for the I ♥ Bloggers series. I don’t ever want my illustration projects to feel like chores. I’ll be posting a new blogger portrait at least once a month, probably always on Mondays, but it’s my goal to try for one every 2-3 weeks. :)
