StickerConMNL 2019 is done, but I still haven’t blogged about the preparations. And there were a LOT of preparations.
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. ♥
