Definitely Work In Progress

LINDA_TIEU_MARCH

I've been busy these past months with freelance design work and it seems everything else is up in the air and unfinished on my plate. It's a bit frustrating to always have things in progress... but I suppose I simply need to hustle more. Philosophically, I thought this quote was fitting though... Art is never finished, ...

WIP – Sketches of Girls

LTieu-sketch-1

I usually participate with Art Every Day Month, but this year I really missed the boat. Although I couldn't keep up with posting daily by any means, I thought that at the least I could post on this last day of the month with what I have accomplished. Focus on the positive, right?

LINDA_TIEU_THESNAILANDTHEROSETREE_1A_WEEK-3

For the third week of Make Art That Sells with Lilla Rogers, I created a mock children's book cover illustration for The Snail and The Rose Tree. It turned out quite vintage looking to me... but I ran out of time, so it's not very detailed at all. There are so many little tidbits that can ...

For the second week of Make Art That Sells with Lilla Rogers, we learned all about the home decor market and ended up playing with designing dinnerware.
