#AtoZchallenge 2019 FLUEVOGS! AGAIN!

I have settled into this theme, haven't I?
Third year's a charm!
This year, I got my sketching done early, through the help of a Facebook sketching group called Up for a Challenge.
My first effort was a blind contour (ie, not looking at the paper while drawing):

Day 2 had me sketching Julia with a better pen, still blind:

By day 3, I'd had it with the blind sketching and did just continuous line sketching (not lifting the pen from the paper):

For the A-Z Challenge, I'll be putting my sketches into repeats again.
The fun begins 4/1/19!

Curious about the A to Z Challenge? Read more here, on the A-Z Blog, and consider giving it a try! I’ve discovered new blogging friends and have created lots of new art through it.

Fluevog Bee's Knees Repeat Artwork Update

Ah, Fluevog Bee's Knees, you are such cute shoes! Putting that lacing into a proper repeat stung!
Now you're giving me a hard time with how the colors print. Buzzzzzzz.

I managed to refresh the colors for the Aqua colorway (which was disturbing me, not a big aqua fan).
The Black looks bad on my Spoonflower strikeoff and I'll have to wrestle with the digital file to get it to work.

Aqua strikeoff . Black strikeoff

Aqua: old . new
on Redbubble . on Spoonflower
Black: (still trying to come up with a solution)

Good news for you fabric hoarders collectors -- Spoonflower is granting FREE SHIPPING worldwide until 3/8!!!
