DIY Finn and Jake Christmas Ornaments


Playing with super sculpey during Thanksgiving break. Saving some money for Christmas ornaments.
I think I'll do more Adventure Time characters later. Update soon :)
I know it's kinda early for a tree, but having one at home really brings warmth and joy.
Happy Holiday!
Now back to work XD

New Website!

Didn't realize till a few days ago that Apple had ended the service of mobile me. So my old website was down for about a week already. What a bummer! :(  Good thing is now I'm forced to update my website and recognized stuff. After 2 days of working, the new site is now up and running!

www.christinecsart.com

Check it out and I'll keep updating the content. (So far I'm still working on the portfolio part lol)

work in progress

It's been quite a while since I did a landscape. This one is personal, and I finally had time in between projects to really sit down and planned it through. It's like rediscovering something familiar with a new perspective. I started with watercolor and switched to charcoal, acrylic and pastel. Just to try out how they work together. Maybe I'll even play with some gouache and ink later. So far I'm having a lot of fun :)






Finished!:)

This is a very fun project. It's about two kids playing in the kiddie pool and let their imagination take them to a great adventure on the sea.

Meet Henry




















An early stage of my character design in the story Little Mice, Big Elephants.
Later on I changed the medium from cold press watercolor paper, watercolor and pastel to hot press, watercolor and pen & ink.
So the look of Henry changed, but I personally like this version of the little guy a lot.

A little series

Can't believe this is my first post this year! I guess life had been very busy lately that I finally get to sit down and do some update.
Moving down to LA 2 month ago was a big decision, and I've been doing some job hunt since then. Did a project for Intuary Inc. which is a children's book app on iPad called FarFaria  (will update that once the story get published) and finally signed a contract with a children's book agency.
I'm also planing on doing something for myself, a series of illustration from the old classic fairy tale. Hopefully that will keep me occupied while doing freelancing .
Here's a sneak peek of the working project :)
