I’ve been taking lessons. With my mother-in-law.
She used to be a pretty well-known hairdresser back in the day. I heard she even did hair for members of the royal family. And she’s been teaching me the ropes.
Given my obsession with all things hand-related…
… I thought it’d be fun to add hairdressing to my list of hand-skills…
… in addition to illustration, drawing, painting, hand-stitching, and…
… the host of other stuff I already have in my repertoire.
But unlike my other skills, hairdressing requires a “willing” participant!
Thus, I’m glad I have my hubby to practice on. 🙂
Yesterday was the first day I actually tried putting everything I learned into practice. And it turned out pretty well. He loves the haircut. He even went out proudly yesterday to show it off. And I think it looks amazing on him. Normally my mother-in-law does his hair. And she does it for me too, whenever I need it.
But I think I did a pretty swell job all on my own this time!
All except for… the little bald spot at the back of his head…
But it’s really, really, really tiny. And barely noticeable. And I’m sure no one’ll notice. I’m sure… 🙂
I was just thinking.
About how I managed to pick up this skill so quickly. And do such a great job my first time around. I only made one tiny mistake. But the rest was… perfect! :O
And I believe I owe it all to the hand-skills and training I picked up as an artist studying under some of the top Disney and Pixar illustrators in the world.
All the grueling training they put me through really raised my dexterity.
And gave me steady hands.
Umm… most of the time.
One of the things I regret most though?
Not being able to apply these Disney and Pixar inking techniques I’ve learned over the years to my SVG artwork. Because SVG is such a fickle format. And only accepts very simple linework most of the time.
I’ve been able to use their special techniques on my PNG designs to some extent.
But even then they’re still somewhat limited. Because of the transparent file format. Not as much as for SVGs though. And a lot of fans who use my PNG designs go on to have their products sell like hotcakes and hitting bestseller status in record time.
But good news…
I’m happy to announce:
After much trial, error, and headache-inducing experimentation…
I’ve finally found a way to apply a lot more of that Disney and Pixar magic to my SVG designs! In addition to my own proprietary inking techniques I’ve developed over the years… combine them all together… and…
… I call it “Turnip Magic”! 🙂
It’s an inking technique that brings the magic of Disney, Pixar, and The Turnip Patch right to my SVG wreaths. The same magic you and your kids enjoy while watching your favorite Disney and Pixar animated films. And that helps them make blockbuster hit after blockbuster hit at the box office.
So now you can impress your clients, family, and friends…
… without settling for unscaleable PNG designs…
… which a lot of print shops don’t accept these days…
… while still attracting more sales, faves, and rave reviews, like what our PNG clients are often used to getting.
It all starts with this first wreath… my new Dainty Flower SVG wreath… made with that very special “Turnip Magic”.
