As we will soon be releasing the new AW12 collection in my Mandarin Gallery shop, I would like to share with you some of the things that went into the making of the collection. Inspired by the Atlantic Puffin, this black-and-white seabird is super adorable ESPECIALLY when it dons its super colourful beak during mating season. *ahem*
As usual, I start with research and selecting some images to draw from. This time I ended up with four different versions of the bird. I do most of the drawing work at my home studio.
