Growing as an Illustrator and Designer over time.

Cat Drawing!

I am very much a cat person, and I like to surround myself with other animal lovers. As gifts I started drawing my friends cats, using photos as a direct reference. See below for a sample I did of my brother's cat Mello.

I find these illustrations fairly fun and because there it is replicating instead of inventing an image they can be done fairly quickly. I am adding "Draw My Cat" to my commission form and will be able to do them at just 10$ per illustration.

Additional costs can be discussed after the fact if you're also interested in backgrounds, or a mug layout through Zazzle.com.

Check out the samples below, and give your animal companion a hug for me.

Please!

Select the "Draw My Cat!" Option.

Sample Kitties!

Some friends have happily allowed me to draw their cats for examples.

KilianWalkerDesigns – Zazzle Store Opening

Zazzle is a great website for creating personalized items such as mugs, t-shirts, buttons and stickers. I've previously used them with my Nailkita Brand, and have now moved everything over to my KilianWalkerDesign brand.

Illustrations used in my Zazzle Store may be similar in style to my stock illustrations, but I will try to be more fun with them, to create original gift ideas you can mix and match.

I also have up a collection of alert-like stickers and buttons for products, or for children to wear when suffering from a severe allergy.

What’s Your Sign?

For a change of pace from the last two weeks, this week I've uploaded 24 illustrations inspired by the Zodiac. They're available as outlines, or fully coloured.

These were a lot of fun to draw, and I especially found Capricorn a lot of fun to draw. The on I would like to come back to and improve on the most would be Scorpio, I was starting to get a bit creeped out while looking at reference images, and being a Scorpio myself I of course want my symbol to look the best.

Next week I'll have my portfolio updated with some of my graphic design work, and you can look forward to some fall and apple inspired illustrations.

Giving Thanks for a Fresh Start!

Get ready for Fall!

Crisp weather, warm colours and a spooky atmosphere start the month off right.

With a fresh launch of KilianWalker.com today with a new layout and design on this Canadian Thanksgiving I am thankful for many things.

I'm celebrating my first 100 illustration milestone at Fotolia and Adobe Stock. In honour of the Canadian Thanksgiving my 100th image is this semi-realistic illustration of a male and female turkey.

Halloween is just around the corner.

It's that spooky time of year, so I spent the first week of October celebrating in my own way with 31 new vector illustrations that are halloween themed. All available as stock illustration at at Fotolia and Adobe Stock. Here are 2 of my favourites.

Have a Safe and Happy October!

Look forward to all the beauty that autumn brings and find inspiration in it. I know I will.
