Welcome to Connie Cermak Illustration
I hope you enjoy my fresh & colorful drawings!
By day I’m a creative strategist and marketing consultant. But at night I put my passion to work illustrating. I live in a charming little town called Whitefish located just 20 minutes from Glacier National Park in Montana.
My drawings vary from quickly sketched “doodles” to highly detailed illustrations and renderings. I enjoy sketching anything from food and cocktails to family pets, fashion, wildlife and maps. My greatest passion is in portraying life’s little vignettes, daily happenings, observations and daydreams. Most of my ideas and inspiration come to mind while spending time hiking, kayaking, fly fishing and generally exploring the beautiful Montana wilderness with my dog Dolby.
Illustrating brings me tremendous peace, enabling me to play with the ideas in my head or express sentiments through a soulful, visual process. If you’d like to chat about a special project that you’d like me to sketch, please contact me!
All of my illustrations are done with Copic markers, Prismacolor pencils, Winsor and Newton watercolors, and a variety of mediums and embellishments. I enjoy the process of experimenting with new techniques and mediums, and most of what I’ve learned has been self taught thanks to YouTube and on line painting classes.
I hope you find an illustration on this site that inspires you to pick up your pencils and start doodling.
