Unicorn Tea

Decided to do a quick commission for a fellow tea lover on Reddit. Rianna Hardesty creates signature tea blends for the website Adagio and was looking for a few artists to design the labels for a tea blend series based on mythical creatures. So I decided to give it a go and did a quick little piece for her unicorn inspired tea.

You can see my art in action or buy some of this unique tea here on Adagio's website.

Bonus: A quick picture of the tea I'm drinking right now! Woooooo!

Drawing Internet Strangers

WARNING: If you are offended by by real life human bodies in sexual poses avert your eyes! 

So I've been sick now for 2 weeks now and have been feeling pretty awful and not drawing as much as I should. Anyways, I've been trying to keep up with some sketching with the help of Reddit Gets Drawn, a subreddit (online forum) where people post pictures of themselves and artists of varying levels draw them. Any ways, I've done a couple here and there over the past couple weeks. So here they are.

I like doing these Reddit Gets Drawn drawings because it's low pressure and an opportunity to experiment and have fun. Plus someone gets a cool drawing out of it!
