366 Days of Illustration Challenge – May

May – the fifth month of my one year of illustration challenge, was the toughest one so far. I have had high hopes for it since it was my birthday month.I thought that the ideas would just come to me, well I couldn’t be more wrong. However, I managed to pull through all the difficulties.

In this post, I’m excited to share all the flat illustrations from May, so from day 122 to 152. The main themes were food, cosmetics, (birthday) parties and travel.

As always, like in January, February, March & April all of the vector illustrations were drawn in Adobe Illustrator*. Let’s dive in, shall we?!

Today is my sister’s birthday!!!🥳 (Fun fact – our birthdays are exactly 1 week and 1 year apart!)  

Although we live over 1500km apart from each other, I couldn’t miss a chance to draw a gift for her – Stromanthe Triostar Plant

She’s also an illustrator, so we can support each other in this crazy freelancing world. Ever since we were little, her art inspired me. I remember peeking into her sketchbooks, admiring all the details that went into each of her illustrations. 

I’m so grateful to have her in my life. Happy Birthday, Sis!🎉🎁🎂
