For this piece, Liz Lapointe wanted to get a summertime feeling while having fun with the limited color palette of June's #CopicColors.

We love Brianne Drouhard's style, and especially this piece titled "Unicorn Queen" she created for June #CopicColors. Be sure to check out more of her work, including her webcomic Harpy Gee, which she creates using Copic Markers.

Every month, Jessica has been illustrating 19th century fashion with each month's #CopicColors, progressing a decade each month. June brought her to the 1850s, and June's Copic Colors reminded her of a garden party. "Fashion and art tell the story of history. That’s what inspires me,” said Jessica.
