Create an fun, bright illustration in the style of children's illustration to post on social media.
I challenge myself to post a new illustration weekly on my Instagram, not only as an exercise in creating a new piece of art each week, but also to gain comfort in putting myself and my work onto a public platform. An area for improvement that I focused on in this piece was filling the background of my illustrations; I often make standalone characters with no surrounding environment. I also tend to create portraits, rather than characters in actions. These were the two goals that I had in mind when beginning my initial sketches for this illustration. I most enjoyed adding the small details in the piece, especially the titles for the cookbooks in the background.
