Shades of Fall

Hi everyone,

How was your weekend?

The weather is getting colder and it’s important to have cozy sweater and warm pants in your closet. I stumbled upon this beautifully knitted sweater at Marshalls and totally fell in love with these incredible details on the back.Β 

The crispy air and the splash of colors inspired me to create this illustration.
