Self Care Series

Self care is something that I have to remember to ensure I’m doing to keep in balance. It’s something that I don’t think was particularly talked about until recent years along with the increase in talking about mental health. So I decided to do a series of illustrations depicting self care activities.

In order to create a cohesive series of illustrations as would be required for an illustration brief I decided to draw them in a similar style in terms of colour palette and detail.

And the one that went a bit wrong… Whilst I like it as an illustration when lined up with the others I realised that it was a bit more fussy which stood out and the clouds looked weird when the others had a simple blue watercolour wash. In a real scenario if this was editorial illustrations for example then I would redraw this or perhaps edit to make it more in keeping.
