Man. Crazy detail on making those shoes small and still legible ha.
So cute! Really great!

Hey @Jerrod - I love your work. Can you give us a little insight on a bit of your process? How do you come to this amazing result? Do you always sketch or sometimes go straight to the computer? Thanks!
@Marco Moreno I always start with a sketch. Some sketches are more complete than others. But there is always a pencil and paper process at the beginning. Working in Illustrator allows me to adjust as I go so often the final product looks different than the original sketch. I don't so much trace the sketch as use it as guide as I work in Illustrator. But it's all done in AI with layers and some textures. Just depends on what the final output will be.
only you can make accounting look adorable.
Thank you @Rob McClurkan
@Jerrod - Thanks for that. I'm in the middle of starting some contract work that will require small vector drawings and I wanted to explore some workflows. As always clients want stuff faster than we'd like so any tips help.
How long did spend on this? Might not be a good example as if was a piece for a friend. What about something that is under a deadline?
@Marco Moreno That's pretty much always my process. Style and amount of detail tends to be what makes a differenceas far as time. I don't have a lot of shortcuts. I've been working in Illustrator for so long now, I am fairly quick. But it's a tedious program. Working everything out in the sketch stage does help.
