This is a quick portrait I did as a birthday gift for a lovely coworker named Kat. Sometimes when I have a little spare time and (more importantly) inspiration, I like to sketch out my fellow coworkers. In this case, the illustration happened to just pop in my head based on her demeanor and nature, so it was rather just a matter of my hand channeling the vision already in my head. Since I happened to like how it came out, I decided to post it up here.
The pattern for her shirt is actually taken from a iphone photo I snapped of her shirt, which I thought was just too cool not to drop into the painting as a texture.
