Cute Flame Character Vector Illustration

This cute flame character was drawn for one of the topics of Illustration Friday. I love these warm colors so it was just natural for me to create such a happy little fire in yellow and orange. The transparencies in the flames make this image more lively and cheerful. Later I added art prints to my Redbubble and Society6 stores. Check out some of the products: Continue reading Cute Flame Character Vector Illustration

Tulip Pattern featured at Redbubble

My red tulip pattern was featured by Redbubble at their Found page. It is a geometric vector illustration of abstract tulips. It also has many decorative elements like abstract leaves. Also features bright orange red colors inspired by spring.  Check it out here: Continue reading Tulip Pattern featured at Redbubble

Umbrella pattern with rain and clouds – illustration and products

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 and ladybugs illustration

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

Umbrellas pattern and more things I did recently

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”:

Spiral with planets and stars representing a mix between snail and space
Universe is a snail

Also, created a blog post with sketches drawn in the second and third weeks of February.

Methane molecule image featured at Redbubble

My molecule image showing sp³ hybridization in methane has been featured in Redbubble’s Found today! Thank you Redbubble. So I thought it was just about time to present it here.

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.

Methane molecules and clouds pattern

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

Horned owl illustration and products

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

Methane molecule illustration and more stuff created recently

Created a vector illustration with this methane molecule. Chemistry is fun for me so why chemical illustrations shouldn’t be? Made a pattern, too. Added prints and products to Redbubble and to my Society6 store, too.
