happy camper


For Illustration Friday this week, with the theme word of wilderness. "Mr. Bear, who lives in Wilderness, USA, is heading out for a camping trip." Some of you may recognize a few of these elements from stamps I designed for A Muse. Can you see the Camper, the Fishing trip truck and the Pine tree silhouette? It's really fun to take images that are just black and white outlines and bring them to life with color. I especially like the camper with it's retro shape. If I ever have a camper, I want it to be just like this one!
