Out of my entire collection of stuffed animal illustrations, I think that this one is my favorite. I love the pink, brown, and cream of this image. The zebra turned out just adorable and I can just see it on a kid’s blog or website. My girls love zebras, so this would be perfect for them. If I can find a use for it, I will definitely be using this one.

This illustration also took much longer than the other ones. All those stripes took a long time to clean up and define. But it is still a 15 credit purchase (just like the penguin and the cat).

I love creating stock imagery. There are no deadlines, and I am given complete creative license. The only downside is that there is no guarantee that something will be a success. You are at the mercy of the search engines and a buyer’s taste. I have created lots of files, but only a few become really popular.

Whiteboard Cloud Computing Illustration

I have been wanting to create a whiteboard cloud computing illustration for quite some time now.  I love business silhouettes, and I love hand drawn vector artwork.  Combining the two has never made much sense before, but in this situation, it was the perfect solution.  I took a photograph of my husband in a suit and tie, had him pose holding a pen and pretending to draw on a transparent whiteboard.  Then I drew the cloud computing diagram myself and scanned it in, converted both to a vector format and combined them.  Viola!

I really love this concept of the whiteboard with a silhouette.  It is very clean, crisp, and clear.  Silhouettes look very professional on websites, blogs, articles, and just about anywhere else.  As you can see in the illustration, I included several elements that can be involved “in the cloud” such as a lock (cloud computing security), a graph, a document, a folder, a desktop pc, a lap top, and a smart phone.

One of the great things about vector illustrations is that they are so easy to edit.  Anyone with a vector editing program such as Adobe Illustrator, Corel Draw, or Freehand can change colors with a click, rearrange the diagram, or completely adapt the illustration to suit their needs.

This illustration is available through istockphoto.com and is priced at 15 credits.
