Illustration Friday topic is Wings

For the topic wings I thought I would put another Two Can Art Collection image up. My studio has a big wisteria vine right outside my window that the birds love. It's nice to see them flit about. This little chickadee is in a different setting. I love the orange-red berries against the blue texture. As you may have seen in previous posts the textures are all painted by my son who is autistic and loves the whole sensory experience of paint to paper. I use the painted textures to create images. This is one of my favorite images from the collection.

Two Can Art Fabric Collection on Spoonflower

If you haven't heard of Spoonflower, It's a great site to open a store for fabric. They also do wallpapers,and decals. I've put together 30 designs from the Two Can Art Collection. These are all patterns with images that I have pieced together from the painted textures of my son, Noah. He paints all of the textures and I create the images. Avery nice collaboration. Here is the store site if you want to take a look.

Illustration Friday Topic is Ocean

Well we are back to the sea on this image. This is another of the Two Can Art images that I used my son's painted textures for. This image is also about the Great Barrier Reef and all of the life that it supports.

Illustrator Friday Topic is Edge

I did some research over the past few months on The Great Barrier Reef. When I think of the word edge it comes to mind. Due to environmental issues and global warming the reef is disappearing. It is on the edge as are all of the creatures that live there. Half of the Great Barrier Reef has died in the last 30 years. It is home to thousands of fish species and other creatures. The more I learn the more alarming the facts are. I think the reality of the situation is staring us all in the face. The big question is how do we as a human race make a difference?
This image is from the Two Can Art collection of images. The collection is a group of images that are a collaboration with my son, who is autistic. He paints all of the textures and I put them into images.
