I tried to think of ways of helping to promote new women’s pro soccer team Seattle Reign and this is something I could do so I did. In a shocking display of disloyalty I made one for a Chicago Red Stars vs Boston Breakers game and they used it for the match poster.
I did simplified logos for Seattle, Chicago, and Boston. That was fun. I kind of love the Seattle one.
Back in spring 2012 I saw some delightful Downton Abbey paper dolls. They were well done, a little sassy, and darn it – I’ve always loved paper dolls. I would have made an excellent 1930s tomboy with a secret paper doll stash. Anyway, as usual I looked at it and decided it was something I could pull off if only I had the right topic. Hope Solo just got done blowing up Dancing with the Stars so it was fresh on my mind. Why not do a tomboy’s version of paper dolls? The first version I did had more DWTS costumes in it. This is v2.0 which removed most of the DWTS costumes and instead has Hope’s short stint with the Sounders Women represented, a Hyperice addition, and more reading material. It’s more of an Olympic edition I guess. Once Seattle Reign settles on a kit I’ll try to update it with that or maybe add another sheet.
I really love drawing in miniature so the book covers were a blast to do as was the Starbucks cup. I’m kind of excited about doing new stuff in the future. With the hard bits done I’m not sure why I haven’t gone back to add more just for the heck of it. I’ll add it to my list.
