StickerConMNL 2019 is done, but I still haven’t blogged about the preparations. And there were a LOT of preparations.Read More
We got the good news that we were accepted for Stickercon 2019 last late October. So we had enough time to create new artworks for the con. I was thinking of venturing out of my floral comfort zone, and my attempts with food illustration seemed like a good idea.
I did a bunch of food illustrations from December to February. But not all of them made the cut. I was thinking of food illustrations that aren’t similar to my January Maker sister Monique’s style and theme. Something uniquely mine. That’s when I thought of dessert stickers. The way I paint is very loose and chaotic compared to Monique’s insanely detailed and perfect food illustrations.
I went with that direction and am very happy with the results.
Thanks to my officemates, I finished cutting my stickers a week before StickerCon. It was a good thing though, since Monique needed help cutting her stickers. Hannah and I helped her after work.
But I was known as a flower artist, so I created new flower stickers for the con. Thankfully, I had a bunch of new works last year that I could use. I chose some personal favorites and some popular works. This time, they are circular and with a fancy laminate.
Next up would be the Stickercon art tambay after the pre-con meeting, and the Stickercon event itself. I promise to blog about it soon. ♥
