After I made a skateboard with her name on it for her sister, my niece obviously also wanted one. As she was already old enough to actually learn how to skate, I got her a decent “Quicksilver Daisy Spray” longboard/skateboard.
This time, I wanted to try something different and create some stickers. I had never used Procreate on my iPad, and probably have only scratched the surface of what is possible. This is what came out of it:
The reason to shorten ALYSSAR to ALYSR, i.e. leaving out repeating letters on their first occurrence, was purely practical: the company I wanted to order the stickers from—Sticker Yeti—was only doing square stickers for a reasonable price. I also think that ALYSR has a bit more street cred, haha. But my at the time 6 years old niece didn’t understand why there were missing letters… And Sticker Yeti ended up not being able to properly trace the outline of my submitted file, so I canceled the order and went with Sticker Mule instead.
Sticker Yeti would not reimburse my order but gave me store credits instead. I seized the opportunity and transformed one of my favorite drawings into another sticker.
Eagle eyes can spot the sticker on pictures of my bike frame.
