Panda Art: Valentine Sketch
This loving valentine sketch is hand drawn and inked in my sketchbook for my oldest daughter. It was then watercolored by Brooklyn artist Amanda Smith of SoCal design studio A. Smith and Co. So much love involved here, my heart is 'asploding.
My daughter is muy loco about pandas, and has been since she was a toddler in fact, so drawing pandas is nothing new for me. I don't claim this sketch to be a completely original idea, it's heavily inspired by the work of prolific and very talented illustrator Derek Chatwood, whom I admire a whole bunch. He did a fun and fantastical panda series once upon a time and I've always wanted to try something similar. This work is NOT for sale and is just a recreational sketch I used as Valentine's day art for my daughter.
