took a break in March for the my favorite crazy-intense class, MATS! :) Week 1 was the Paper market- this was in my wheel house, but i was determined to take a fresh unbiased look at it while bringing my experience along as a coach- again i played with hand lettering and also to challenge myself further i made it a scene ( we were given the challenge in class to make it vertical even though normally a train makes you think horizontal- i am used to that because of my day job for a Greeting card company) First off, this was my inspiration- a magical forest feel......
hand- lettering roughs
sketches of trains
and below is my final- Merry Wishes!
