Heartache 1&2

Human Heart Illustration by Eliza Stein

I’m afraid to count the number of layers I needed for both versions of this drawing! Lately I’ve been using mostly flat color for my illustrations, but I’m trying to bring back more interesting textures and collage. And thanks to illustrator Kyle T. Webster’s digital watercolor brushes, I may never use my “real” ones again. Check em out here.

Time for some timely updates!

Hello friends, future friends, friendly foes, and the fairly indifferent,

It feels like forever since I’ve updated here. I miss keeping up with Illustration Friday each week, but at least it’s been lots of work that has kept me away from here for now. Besides the illustration above, which I developed from an old IF sketch, here’s what I’ve been up to this year:

-Working on a couple of new commissions.

-Completing many new posters and greeting cards for my Etsy and Society6 shops.

-Writing and sketching my first children’s picture book proposal.

-Learning and practicing with new software! This is the first year I’ve subscribed to Adobe’s Creative Cloud, so now I’m overwhelmed with this new access to all of their programs. My goal this year is to learn After Effects and Muse… and everything else if there’s time!

But there is still plenty of time, so if you’d like to work with me, please write to elizasteindesigns [at] gmail.com, or send me a quick note on Twitter @MsElizaStein.

A long overdue Happy 2013 to all!
