#doodleina

Here's something fairly new that I've been really enjoying on my Instagram. With the help of my awesome friend, Ianne, the series name "Doodleina" has slowly come into effect. As a kid, a couple of my favorite things were pop-up books and paper dolls. I also vaguely remember seeing short stop motion clips where paper dolls were utilized and were brought to life. There was something so magical about it for me! 

My Doodleina's are my girly illustrations that are Thumbelina-sized. I bring them to life and take them on adventures in the real world. What I love most about this series is that I'm able to integrate two of my favorite creative outlets: Art and Photography. 

Here's one that I worked on earlier today. I literally made this an hour or so before my sister and I got sushi for take-out. The thought of sushi gave me this spark of motivation to get right back into creating my doodleinas :) 

 I start off with pencil and then move right into my watercolor. I'm forever in love with my Pental water brush as it's so convenient when I'm not in my studio.

 After pencil and watercolor, it's onto ink for completion! If you're curious, I currently use Faber-Castell PITT artist pens. Every now and then I use my microns.

 Then I  cut cut cut  and viola! Doodleina is born. Homegirl right here is named Rhea. When I name my girls, I google "girl names" and randomly pick one that I see fit. I seem to like names that end with an "A", I don't know why.

Anyway, I'm hoping to really get into creating more doodleina's for ya! They're really fun to make and I've already been thinking of different scenario's for my future doodleina's. It's getting me excited and I can't wait to see the progression :)
