I usually spent a lot of time in each one of my drawings. For that reason I'm always looking for the best way to optimize my time and use each creations in different mediums and products. And it's fun because you have ONE drawing and you have to think how and what you can change to use and reuse (it's this the correct word?) that image. Usually my brain is always spinning thinking in what else I can do ;)
Do you want to see how many things I do with one drawing?
OK. Here we go...
First, everything star with my dear pen and a piece of paper. I usually use water color paper to make my original drawing, but sometimes I just use whatever I found here on my table.
After that, I scan the drawing and with TONS of patience I add the color using illustrator (after I vectorized the scanned image).
When the image is ready with the colors, Mr. Harper pick the name. And with that I made:
1.- Prints, t-shirt, iphone and laptops skins on my Society6 shop
2.- Super cool Duvet Cover (Andrew and I gave this one to my mother in law for her birthday... she love it!).
3.- The same drawing in black and white can look awesome in Shower Curtains (and other things, right?)
4.- And if I take out the flowers and other details, and only use "The Bird", I have other artwork!
5.- You can crop part of your drawing. And using other color scheme, create a totally new image.
6.- And last but no least, I create a pattern with the drawing to be use in last week Spoonflower contsest ;)
One drawing... many options ;)
I will go and check all my old drawings and see how I can reuse it to create new things. It's fun... GO and do the same ;) You don't think it's a good idea?
