07 Sep Monsieur Le French Postcard #36
His name in Monsieur Le French, he’s painfully handsome, incredibly intelligent and can cook a five course meal with organic ingredients that tastes other worldly. To say he is a coveting eligible bachelor is an understatement.
He loves reading at independent coffee houses sipping on fair trade beans and thrives in his urban environment. This guy is the most down to earth French bulldog you’ll ever meet!
I don’t often pick favourites with my designs, but this guy sorta stole my heart. I had a lot of fun creating this illustration. If you missed some of my other designs in the same style, check out Elektra, Leo and Dylan. I like the progression these are allowing me to make in my craft and have several ideas for more to create a series of art prints in this hipster illustration style.
This is the first, very rough sketch, the only reason I am showing it is to display how the work doesn’t come out perfect the first time, you have to refine it. I do this with a light board and trace the image again on marker paper or tracing paper.
Here is the final sketch used to scan into Photoshop for colouring. I also think I may do a colouring book with all my line drawings so watch for that in the future (hopefully in time for stocking stuffers).
And here is Monsieur Le French mocked up sitting in a square frame on your desk. Such a sophisticated fella!
