camera collection : take one

revere eye-matic
The first in a little series I've been working on since...oh, July.  My favorite illustrations are all of either cameras or typewriters.  I've decided it's time I try my hand out at both.  I'm thinking about 10 of these little jewels, repeated, could make a pretty nifty wallpaper pattern...  Let's see if I can get there.

cameras are so tough to draw - i can never manage the angles and all the little pieces and parts. yours looks great! love the colors - and yes - it would make a great pattern!

Hi Suzanne- I love all of your renderings. What kind of pens (black) do you use?

I have an artist friend who "inherited" a ton of old cameras when she moved into her quaint apartment nearly 20 years ago. I should ask her if she's every thought about drawing them. :)

p.s. these drawings would also make a great fabric pattern (such as using Spoonflower.com )

Suzanne, +your+ art brightens our days! Did you use Illustrator here? Or Markers? I do believe these could make a truly wonderful and unique pattern. Are you on etsy.com? I am happy to say I finally launched my blog, and finished all the portfolio tabs! yay! keep up the Inspiring work!

Oh my! Thanks for all the lovely comments. Miti...to answer your question, I did the original drawing by hand and added color in photoshop. And no active Etsy shop now...but hopefully soon.

I just need to push myself!
