What Happened After

A funny thing happened on the way to the POD …

Let me be the first to say that the tree sketches I post here aren’t exactly Amazing Art With A Capital A.  I’m getting a bit better as I practice, but by and large, what comes out of my hands is a pale shadow of what is in my head.

And yet, I’ve been posting things to Red Bubble, the print on demand site for Artists Who Make Art.

That doesn’t seem to make sense, eh?

The secret is  … before I do post them on the Bubble, I clean them up with the power of vectors.

For example, here’s a before-and-after comparison of the Early October Tree I posted here a while ago:

A black tree of few, leaf-less, swirling branches.

Something’s not quite right about this tree.

A sparse, leafless tree with branches ending in spirals

This is a cut-down version of the vector image


I didn’t really like the way that small branch in the middle was all wibbly, so I’ve fixed it. I also wasn’t happy with the thickness of the big top branch, so I thickened it up.  Hooray vectors!  :)

Also, this is a cut-down version – Red Bubble has the Really Big Version.
