As Ive developed my cafe idea, I decided to look at colours used in my illustrated characters and pick out certain colours and then create colour pallets. This was a pretty successful activity and gave me a wide range of colours and shades from a single selection. Because my cafe is going to have some brightly coloured illustrations. Ive decided to keep any colour in my text really simple to contrast my illustration style.
I started by pulling the yellow from my Harry Potter inspired illustration and then just looked at variations of the colour selection. I did the same with each illustration and created a series of these colour pallets that I can use when creating new illustrations and collections.
