The conductor

Sweet-holidays-yellow-scarf-anna-berger

Currently I am taking the online course “Make art that sells” part B and this is what I made our first week. The theme we was given as inspiration was toy trains and later the assignment was to make a winter holiday postcard. And well this is what happend! This is not a train, and it is not a pattern as I use to do, it is an conductor driving an old train!  I think I am so into storytelling and picturebooks right now so this picture just came up in my head and I had to make him first. Each week I go to the library and borrow as many picturebooks I can carry, I think the ladies at the library think I work at a kindergarten.
I also learning about photoshop, making textures and layering but sure it takes time. Below I share some of my process and sketches to this, and a little train I licensed last year to Aeon shop in Japan.
Now on to work on the actually train!
