Apartment Living 
I wanted to do a study of balconies and give each space a different mood/personality. This is probably the most complicated piece I’ve done but I’m happy with how it turned out.

Auron from Final Fantasy X
So for the past few days I’ve been painting dog portraits and flower still life  commissions (paint dogs pay debt) and I was feeling REALLY burnt out so I thought I would draw something cool and badass to make me feel better. I picked one of my favorite FF characters and challenged myself to see what I could get done in 4 hours. I’ve come to realize that as much as I love painting fancy and silly things for clients and my portfolio, sometimes I just gotta draw cool armor and buff men with swords, and that is ok!

Wishing Well
A piece about children who want to grow up so they can enjoy the luxuries of being an adult. This was a ton of fun!

Death by Chocolate Cake
This started out as an exercise for a digital painting class I was taking where we had to paint a piece of cake, but over a few months I revisited it and the painting evolved into something more.

Deco Fish Pattern 
I made an angelfish pattern. Also, I just set up a Society6 page, so if you need cute cute shower curtains or a shirt with a vintage clad cat on it then take a look! I’ll be posting more work up later.

Jimmy in Paradise  

One of the best things about being an illustrator is that sometimes you get commissioned to paint cute dogs! This is Jimmy the Boston Terrier frolicking in paradise. The client wanted a series of 3 paintings to be displayed together in her home. These were painted in Photoshop. 

If you would like a cute painting of your pet (makes a great gift) , shoot me a message or email me at lydiaguadagnoli@gmail.com 

Fighting Words 
This is just a personal piece I made to get inspired after not making art for a few days. I have an undying love for all things Art Deco, so this was a ton of fun.
