Days 17-20

  • Bunny Ice Cream – my SCK Bunny mascot as a cute ice cream. (Illustrator)
  • Panda Ice Cream – to match the bunny. It would be fun to make this one in real life. (Illustrator)
  • Cup of Tea – for National Tea Day. (Sketch/iPad)
  • Pastel Planets – this was popular so I turned it into a repeat pattern. (Photoshop)
