When thinking of what to post this week, I was torn between creating an illustration to celebrate Pantone’s color of the year for 2013 and an illustration in honor of St. Patrick’s Day. Then I realized…. with Pantone’s color being emerald, I don’t even have to choose!

I don’t have much in the way of green in my wardrobe β€” and I don’t know why since the color’s so festive – so I really ought to change that. And with it being β€œthe color of the year” I’m sure there’ll be no shortage of emerald pieces to choose from in stores. In the meantime, here’s a few watercolor doodles of some fun emerald pieces I found on Modcloth. Anyone else finding any inspiration in Pantone’s pick?

And happy St. Patrick’s Day to all who celebrate it!
