Advent illustration series
Posted 3 months ago and submitted by Darren Gate | Share link: http://illo.cc/90735





I’ve been working on a daily illustration challenge, to illustrate an advent calendar.

The theme for my illustrations is to highlight and celebrate diversity and also to show the way in which people are coping with quarantine this Christmas. I wanted to keep my colour palette reduced to three main colours, one used for each day. This has been a very good challenge to draw and colour within these restrictions.
