Floral Illustrations

June is over and I don’t even remember when it began. Things have been going at a breakneck speed for the past two months. Fixing severity one issues at work, late nights and production support. Sometimes my tea goes cold and lunch half eaten, but I love the challenge my job brings. More often than not, I would be solving one thing or the other. It sure keeps things exciting in the otherwise unadventurous desk job 🙂

This floral illustration was made last month, usually after work or during weekends, when I would take out my pencil colors, spread it on my table and go coloring. Frankly, I didn’t have a plan or idea on how it would look like in the end. The only thing I wanted to do was make an artwork completely with pencil colors.

I drew a rough sketch of the drawing with my Unipen, which I usually use to draw zentangles.

And then started coloring. 🙂





And here’s the final look. Let me know what you think.
