Horses_Coloring_Book_Landscapes

Personally, it is much easier for me to create commissioned editorial illustrations in watercolor than participate in this exciting yet quite challenging project: Horses Coloring And Activity Book for All Ages.

Usually, when I work with my clients on editorial illustrations, it is that the projects are put in place, the budgets are established and I get a good rapport with the customer. I complete the requested piece, client is satisfied; and, I am as an artist and illustrator happy.

In the creation of my own book, I draw and redraw, paint and re-paint. I try to decide the best format for my future co-creators. And, I literally overwhelm myself. A great example with this book. If the Flowers books were quite easy to create: I painted flowers, I drew, and I placed them into the book. On another hand, this Horses book is more than just a coloring book, which customers can purchase, color, and place in the frame into a home decor (see example HERE) . The Horse Coloring book is also an Activity book; but, not only for adults. It is also going to be created for children as well. So, my idea is to make the drawings as simplified and fun as possible yet to have adults to be interested in the coloring them as well. I know from my teaching art experience that children are not afraid to color, yes, yes: adults are! And, than older person gets, then more “doubts” he or she places on one’s courage and desire to succeed. I want to create a book that will unite adults and children. Children will have fun drawing and do activities; and, adults would rejuvenate a Child from within their gorgeous Souls.

Now, you see why commission editorial illustrations for me are much easier to accomplish following business rules. In my personal project of creating horse book there are no rules per se.

Well, this journey will be quite an interesting one. I think I will have to start with the small steps and develop further and further.

Live To Create!

Painting For Publishing For A New Art Book

I also mentioned about this painting in the post about one art show:
Feeling Blue In Naperville, IL

It does take a long time to see an editorial illustration in publication. The process of the publishing involves not only artist’s painting, but the work of whole team of editors, signing contracts, finalizing details.

I am blessed that this artwork was editorial choice; and soon, it will be on pages of a great book. I am also glad that I have an opportunity to paint editorial illustrations for different publications such magazines, books, and newspapers.

Watercolor Editorial Illustrations – The Burst Of Water & Color

My new creations, which involve only water and color: 
editorial watercolor illustrations for magazines and newspaper articles. 
As I mentioned in the post about editorial illustrations in my prevoius posts:
These days editorial illustrations extended beyond the world of politics or cartoons as it was in previous years. Now, online newspapers and magazines like to utilize artist’s creativity and supply their articles with colorful editorial illustrations (and quite often the watercolor illustrations are leading in comparison with digital or acrylic illustrations) in order to highlight a conceptual element to engage readers fully into the information that article is delivering. 

I let my imagination go wild and created many splashes of watercolors, including strong and beautiful words:

splashes and silhouettes in watercolour
I guess, I just followed my LOVE & PASSION to paint in watercolor with the believe that my watercolor editorial illustrations for sure will engage the readers of magazines and newspapers; that they would invite the readers into a written word, supplied with splashes of watercolor silhouettes. 

And for seasonal type of editorial illustrations, I’ve welcomed fall into my watercolors:

I’ve also created two cute trees that indicate the Beginning of Fall:

By now I have three special galleries that are devoted to editorial choices:


All three of these galleries contain creative artworks from abstract to detailed realism to add a lot to an article or a blog post.

watercolor watercolour by Irina Sztukowski
It is easy to be creative when you have pencil, brush, and watercolor right at your side. It was even easier for me after I visited our local farmers market and fresh idea popped into my head as fresh as their vegetables and fruits there.

I decided to imply my artist’s skills into editorial illustration design; and, I created this cute alphabet made of healthy and delicious veggies.

All of them, by the way are my favorite to eat.

First I’ve created three letters:
Peppery A
Beet – ery B
and Super Cute Bell Pepper – C:

The rest of the letters were just popping and popping for those  watercolor editorial illustrations as if they were waiting for me on the shelves of Farmers Market booths.

Having three very affordable farmers markets nearby, I created this sign that is quite important these days to support the local communities:

Then, one customer of mine asked me to create LOVE TO EAT sign for her kitchen decor. She ordered it on my illustrator website Irina Sztukowski Editorial Illustrations

And I was delighted to create another editorial illustration, Farmers Market, made of sweet radishes, cucumbers, beans, and celery 🙂

For vegan foods lovers, I’ve created a sign:

Basically, I’ve created whole alphabet and made it  possible for customers to order their own signs whatever they feel would look great at their Farmers Market booth, newspaper or magazine articles, cafe or restaurant decor; or, even in the kitchen interior:

All those signs and a cute alphabet for editorial illustrations are in my Food Illustrations Gallery.
