Posted Thursday 27 September 2012 and filed under: In My Sketchbook,Prints, Patterns & Fabric

Please note that I’m selling the original illustration (not an Art Print).

Watercolour + markers + ink on 300gsm Daler & Rowney Aquarelle watercolor paper.

I really enjoyed working on this one! And here’s a little animated GIF on its progression (sorry for the poor lighting – I was working on this one at night!):

In My Shoppe: Original Watercolour Illustration – “Cold Out”

Posted Tuesday 25 September 2012 and filed under: In My Sketchbook,Prints, Patterns & Fabric

Keeping warm in a coat of her own hair! :-)

This is an original illustration using watercolour paint and ink on 300gsm Daler & Rowney Aquarelle watercolor paper. This is the original, so I only have one of these and won’t be making Art Prints of the illustration.

I had a lot of fun working on this one! The size of the paper is standard A4-size and looks great in a simple white frame.

You can find more photos of the illustration in my etsy shoppe here: “Cold Out” by One Red Robin

In my Shoppe: Original Illustration – “Dandelion Bride”

Posted Monday 17 September 2012 and filed under: Hong Kong,Prints, Patterns & Fabric

I completed this illustration a while ago. I couldn’t decide whether it was truly ‘finished’ or not so I’ve let it peacefully sit by the window the last few weeks. This past weekend, I picked it up, refined a few things here and there, and then, finally, I considered it complete :-)

I took home up a few Prima coloured boards on my recent visit to the local art store, with the intention of trying something different with my watercolour illustrations. I’m really pleased with how she has turned out.

Dandelion Bride” (watercolour paint + silver pen + pencils):

The texture of the board was tricky to work with at the start, but after a few adjustments, I found out how to get the coverage I was aiming for and I think it adds character to the end result. I really like how the lighter colours pop out from the caramel base too.

This illustration is larger than my other illustrations and measures 29.7cm by 40.5cm.

I’ve made this illustration available in my etsy shoppe – please note that it is the original illustration (unframed) and not an Art Print, so I only have one of these available :-)

You can find it here: Original Illustration – Dandelion Bride

It’s been a gorgeous weekend – lovely family time, a fantastic run, and a fun catch-up with friends. The weather is finally starting to change and it’s starting to feel more like Autumn (my favourite season!).

More New Art Prints in my Shoppe! “Suspicion” & “Audrey H.”

Posted Tuesday 11 September 2012 and filed under: In My Sketchbook,Prints, Patterns & Fabric

I’ve been trying to get back on-top of my To-Do list lately (I haven’t been as diligent as I should be!). I found a few little pockets of time here and there and managed to finalise a couple of my illustrations into prints.

I’ve blogged about these two illustrations previously, and now they are available as Art Prints.

Suspicion”:

Available in my etsy shoppe here: Art Print – Suspicion.

Audrey H.”:

Available in my etsy shoppe here: Art Print – Audrey H.

I should probably also add that if you do like something in my etsy shoppe but don’t have an etsy account and not interested in signing up for one, you can drop me an email instead and we can arrange payment through Paypal.

And finally here’s a something I was working on over the weekend while my family were happily napping :-)

I’m hoping this new burst of energy/inspiration will remain for the rest of the week!

New Art Print in my Shoppe! “A Ponte de Promessas”

Posted Sunday 9 September 2012 and filed under: Hong Kong,Prints, Patterns & Fabric

I really love how this illustration turned out as an Art Print! Especially the colour and texture!

And this is what it would look like framed:

You can find it my etsy shoppe here: Art Print – “A Ponte de Promessas

How has your past week been? Is it just me or is this year just zooming by! I must be honest and say that I cannot wait for the end of this month – it’s when the 5 months of consecutive 30°C+ days and high humidity in Hong Kong will finally come to an end! I am SO looking forward to the cooler months.

It’s also Mid-Autumn Festival at the end of this month, which is such a pretty and colourful celebration here. In preparation, the lantern decorations are starting to appear:

And I have happily started indulging in Mooncakes! This one is a snowy (non-traditional) Mooncake filled with black sesame paste and a dollop of peanut butter!

So, so, so good (nom, nom, nom).

New Illustration on RedBubble: “Evanesce”

Posted Tuesday 7 August 2012 and filed under: In My Sketchbook,Prints, Patterns & Fabric

There’s something about working with watercolours that makes me want to experiment more, try different techniques and stop trying to control the process so that everything is “just so”. I think that’s a good thing!

This is another watercolour painting I completed a few days ago. This one has a definite ‘fashion illustration’ bent, that seems to be influencing my work more and more these days. My challenge was to keep to a limited palette of 4 colours.

“Evanesce”:

It’s available in my RedBubble shop, as various types of prints in different sizes such as:

A poster:

A framed print:

A canvas print:

You can find it in my RedBubble shop HERE.

New Illustration on RedBubble: “A Moment’s Reverie”

Posted Saturday 4 August 2012 and filed under: In My Sketchbook,Prints, Patterns & Fabric

I’ve been having so much fun with watercolours! I’ve been doing a few portraits and this is the first one I completed last week.

A Moment’s Reverie:

I’ve been getting quite a lot of questions as to whether I can provide my work in larger sizes, framed or mounted, or even as canvas prints! So I decided to put this illustration (as well as a few others) up on my RedBubble shop. I’ve had a RedBubble shop for a few years now (actually 5!) but I’ve never really out anything up to sell on it. However, the great thing about RedBubble is that you can choose the type of print you want.

So ‘A Moment’s Reverie‘ is available as a matted print, mounted print, canvas print and framed print, all in a variety of sizes. All products are professionally printed using high-quality materials and shipped to you in sturdy, protective packaging.

You can find ‘A Moment’s Reverie’ in my RedBubble shop HERE.

New Art Prints for Children: Softies

Posted Sunday 29 July 2012 and filed under: In My Sketchbook,Prints, Patterns & Fabric

I had a lot of fun working on these illustrations. Since I haven’t had the time, and don’t have all the stuff that’s needed to make softies, I decided to draw them! I’m secretly hoping I’ll be able to turn them into actual softies sometime in the future :-) The softies were originally illustrated using markers and pencils.

Bunny Beats:

The Art Prints are now available in my shop: One Red Robin Shoppe on etsy

New Art Prints/Illustrations: English Rose and Mei

Posted Tuesday 1 May 2012 and filed under: In My Sketchbook,Prints, Patterns & Fabric

Eeek, I can’t believe it’s been almost a month since I’ve blogged! April always seems so busy. Work has also ramped up considerably. And it doesn’t help that Hong Kong has also started to turn unpleasantly humid and warm, with frequent thunderstorms!

I completed two new prints in early April and they are now available in my etsy shoppe:

English Rose (pastels + pencils + watercolour)

Art Print: English Rose by One Red Robin

Mei (pastels + pencils)

Art Print: Mei by One Red Robin

I haven’t had much time to draw this month but I have gone back to markers to re-work this print, which I hope will be ready soon!

WIP: Bestest Sister Ever by One Red Robin

The One Red Robin Facebook page also celebrated 100 likes in April by giving away an Art Print. I’m so thankful for the continual support (despite my lack of creativity this past month!).

And finally, in April Jodi of Art by Wiley featured One Red Robin on her lovely blog. Thank you Jodi! You can read the interview here: Art by Wiley – Interview with Jhoanna Monte Aranez

New Art Prints for Kids: a Dreamer & a Dancer

Posted Sunday 11 March 2012 and filed under: Prints, Patterns & Fabric

I’m really enjoying drawing these characters for my kids range of Art Prints. I’ve got a couple more planned, including a boy or two (I keep telling myself I can’t just draw GIRLS all the time!).

This folk dancer was inspired by the beautiful Eastern European national costumes:

Folk Dance by One Red Robin

And this dreamer was inspired by the simple act of staring into space and mulling over dreams, plans, and goals:

She Dreams by One Red Robin

They are now in my shoppe (and free worldwide shipping offer ends March 15th!): One Red Robin Etsy Shoppe
