This umbrella pattern features fun colorful umbrellas floating in the sky. Instead of protecting from rain, raindrops are splashing out of them. I drew this image in Procreate for one of Illustration Friday’s topics. The topic was “umbrella”. Thought what would make such an object more interesting. You typically use it to protect yourself in rainy weather. So what if these umbrellas were raining themselves? Would be more fun. So I opened my favorite Procreate app and drew them. Used one of my recent favorite color schemes – blue, white and red. Later made it available as art prints and products at my stores at Society6, Redbubble, Zazzle. See some of them below.

Spring leaves go with ladybugs, of course. I love spring and decided to celebrate its coming this year with a fun image. I had a similar autumn design. Created a new, spring color scheme in different shades of green and red, then freshened it, improved the leaves, changed almost everything except the basic shapes. After I finished the new illustration, I added art prints to Redbubble and Society6. Check out some of the products from my Society6 store: Continue reading Spring leaves and ladybugs illustration
Drew this rainy umbrellas pattern in Procreate for this week’s Illustration Friday topic “umbrella”, then created a blog post at my art blog.
Before that, I drew this space snail for last week’s topic which was… yeah, you got it right, “snail”:
Also, created a blog post with sketches drawn in the second and third weeks of February.
I love chemistry, especially organic chemistry. Drew this methane molecule because methane is the first compound we study in this discipline (my primary education is a pharmacist). And, to be honest, because I love drawing these shapes. Atomic orbitals represent all possible places of the electrons in space. That is what the dots stand for. And I like adding dots everywhere, too. This design is also related to environmental issues, because methane is one of the gases which contribute to the Greenhouse Effect.
Created methane molecules pattern this week. It’s a geek illustration with a hint of environmentalism. Made it because human farts are 7 percent methane and this gas is one of the greenhouse gasses. Cows have a much bigger impact than humans, though – farts, mostly burp – it’s a lot of methane. So it’s just a fun chemistry design. Shows my favorite sp³ hybridization between carbon and hydrogen atomic orbitals. See this illustration and products with it at Redbubble and Society6. Here are some of the products at my Society6 store: Continue reading Methane molecules and clouds pattern
This horned owl was drawn a long time ago for my poster class along with the skating giraffe. The task was to create an impossible animal. Owls are beautiful birds. They also look very serious and literature presents them as such. When you look at their faces, though, their big eyes make them a bit funny, too. And as I was in love with owls then (and still am), this idea came to my mind very quickly. I had called the creature a viking owl then because of the viking helmets with horns. Later I created art prints and products with this funny cartoon bird. The poster was even featured at Zazzle as a product of the day. Continue reading Horned owl illustration and products
Created two new Behance projects for my portfolio. One is with my weird eyes illustrations from the whole 2016 year. I seem to enjoy drawing eyes a lot. Strange things are happening to them usually. That’s maybe because I have frequent problems with my own eyes. The other project features watercolor snowflake drawings from this winter. I seem to enjoy drawing these a lot, too. Nice simple shapes, lots of room for improvisation. Moreover, I thought I should put some of my watercolors in my portfolio. Not that I’m a pro or anything. It’s just a part of my skills, even if not refined. Take a look at the projects themselves:
Watercolor sketches and art which I recently uploaded to Instagram. I continue to explore watercolor art and I love it more and more. Up to now I’ve created mostly digital artworks. Now I’m thinking of making art prints out of my traditional drawings, too.
