These are in no particular order, and some illustrations may end up rescanned and cleaned up for use elsewhere, as it was difficult to get the initial scan.
While breaking in my Strathmore Visual Watercolor Journal, I decided to do some fun Line Tool inspired emotion stickers. They're really cute in real life, but didn't scan very well, due to the watercolor sketchbook warping with use.
You can get your own Strathmore Visual Watercolor Journal in a variety of sizes. I used the 8.5"x5" journal for these watercolor doodles.
Based on the above illustration of Kara with cinnamon buns, I thought it would be cute to do some Line Tool style 'stickers' of various emotions.

I'd purchased several Strathmore Visual Journals for review purposes (watercolor, Bristol Vellum, Mixed Media) and here's an alcohol marker test on the Bristol Vellum. I believe there should be an accompanying video at some point too.

I think that just about completes the majority of what I've been working on behind the scenes at Nattosoiup Studio. I hope you found it a little bit inspiring, and I hope you're looking forward to these upcoming videos and reviews.
