Friday's Inspiration: Colorful art in San Francisco

I got really inspired by the colors of this beautiful artwork that I saw in one of the streets of San Francisco. I love San Francisco so much! It's my favorite place in California. I used a photo of this artwork as background for my illustration. As you can see, the girl's outfit is very simple because I wanted to focus on the colors this time. I wanted her to look like she's a super relaxed girl walking on the streets of San Francisco...
Friday is here! Plans for the weekend? I'm going to my friend's fashion show and I'm so excited for her! I'll take pictures of this event and of course I'll share them with you!
I also wanted to thank you all for the lovely comments about my illustration for Free People's blog. I have no words to express how much I appreciate all your comments and support! Thank you so much!
Hope you all have a fabulous weekend!

Esta vez me inspiré en los colores de este hermosa ilustración que vi en las calles de San Francisco hace un tiempo atrás. Me encanta San Francisco, es mi lugar favorito en California. Use la foto del gráfico como fondo para mi ilustración. Como pueden apreciar, la ropa de la chica es muy sencilla, ya que quería enfocarme en los colores. Quería también que ella luciera como una chica super relajada que camina libremente por las calles de San Francisco...
Ya es Viernes! Que planes tienen para este fin de semana? Yo voy para un desfile de modas de una amiga y estoy muy emocionada por ella! Tomaré fotos del evento y se las compartiré con ustedes!
Quería agradecerles a todos por sus lindos comentarios acerca de mi ilustración publicada en el blog de Free People, realmente me emociona mucho sus comentarios y el apoyo que me brindan. De corazón mil gracias!!
Espero que tengan un lindo fin de semana!
