Art by Gabrielle Rose. I live in Oakland, CA. Watercolor and ink are my favorite media. Get in touch at hello@drawgabbydraw.com.

I’m thinking maybe I ruined this by painting it, but I also couldn’t leave a line drawing on watercolor paper because that stuff ain’t free, you guys. Might as well add some background color, I guess!

Hello there! I absolutely love your art. You have an incredible talent of working with watercolours and ink! I admire your work, your illustrations and ideas inspire me. uwu If I may ask, how do you go about with thinking up ideas for your art?

I don’t know how to answer this question. I guess I think up ideas like anyone thinks up ideas. Usually they just come to you, but they are influenced by the things you digest during the day—what you read, watch, listen to, dwell upon. I’ve looked at lots of children’s and fantasy illustration in my life until this point, the input of which has surely influenced my output! Also, my ideas are often dictated by the materials I use in my drawings. Watercolor by its very nature suggests certain images, something ethereal and indefinite. 

I don’t know if this makes sense, but it’s the best I can do!

My Terrarium Zine by Cynthia L. (maruti-bitamin.tumblr.com) came a couple of days ago! I’d forgotten that I’d pre ordered it, so it was a nice surprise. She included a tiny original watercolor drawing. Above is just one of the beautiful spreads. You can order yours at her shop, koyamori.storenvy.com.

P.S. If you know of a good way to get color zines printed, let me know at this post!

Zines/booklets

Where do you fellow artists get zines or booklets printed of your art? I’d like to make a little art booklet next year, but something tells me that using my home printer is not the most cost-effective method. Ideas?

Just drawing. It’s only like 8:30 and I’m ready for bed. What about you?
