We just spent the past week living the high life in Las Vegas to celebrate our 10-year wedding anniversary. What could be more fun than capturing Sin City on tiny art cards. Actually, I kept my cards simple and true to my illustration style.
I illustrated the infamous Welcome to Las Vegas sign on side 1.
I drew a marquee frame on side 2 and hand lettered some of our favorite activities. I wanted to add a couple rhinestones to that marquee frame but I can’t find them right now. Both sides have a layer of glitter chalk brushed over them, which is a little hard to see in these photos.
It’s so fun to look back on my art cards to date in 2011, to see the variety of work and expermintations!
We had such a fabulous trip that it was a little hard coming back to reality (especially with yard work and laundry to catch up on). Having to put on a long-sleeved shirt and socks for the first time in a week was a bummer! But it was great seeing my kitties again.
I kept a sketchbook while we were away, illustrating the highlights of each day, which I hope to share with you once it’s finished.
This was my first time keeping a travelog, so I plan to share some thoughts on how that went, the supplies I packed in my suitcase and what I ended up purchasing, mainly because we found the local Blick’s Art Supply store.
