traditional commission: bubble tea animals

A few months ago I was offered something kind of rare, for me — a commission for traditional pen-and-paper illustrations. I mean, I do a lot of animal drawings for a personal project, but I was really honoured and excited that someone liked them enough to request a commission. What’s more, these are going to be hung up in a bubble tea cafe & comic book store in the States!

I was allowed to use black and white, and do pretty much anything I wanted to match the bubble tea & comics theme. The style is a tiny bit different from what I normally do (usually, I colour with colour pencils) but I’m pretty dang happy with the results.

Been working on a brochure design for a used car dealership. I had made a coloured version of this, but since the dealership is more likely to go for less expensive black and white printing I did a grayscale version as well.

I like how the grayscale copy turned out, actually. It doesn’t have that shiny colour polish, but it’s got a cool graphic look. Printed out a rough copy on my old printer  just to get a feel for it.
