The majority of my cards begin as black ink drawings. As I've mentioned before, I digitize my drawings and then use various computer programs (Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop are my preferred favorites) to layout card designs and color the work. For the brand new spring and summer collection of cards, I developed a cohesive color palette that I used throughout the designs (with the exception of the hand-painted gouache cards - more on those here).
I sought out bright, bold colors that were warm, optimistic, and cheery - three words I love to associate with the warmer seasons. Here's the palette I worked with!
