Tiny

Digital, Le Grand Portefeuille

For this Illustration Friday, I decided to keep playing with the Wacom and Photoshop, so I drew and inked a sketch, then played with color and brushes in the computer. I really like the way this process has been going, and the palette is very unlike my usual earthy tones.  It’s definitely good to get out of the comfort zone.

My mom gave me this great chili recipe. So of course, me being me, I illustrated it while making myself giggle. It is now up at They Draw and Cook. That website is a great “creative playground” and I encourage all you artsy folk to submit a recipe.  There is also They Draw and Travel, where you can submit maps. I haven’t ventured into maps yet, but will of course let you all know when I do.

Pet portraiture and Happy New Year (finally!)

Business of Art, Le Grand Portefeuille, Pet Portraits

Hello Friends.  Happy New Year.  I’ve been a bit busy, and have neglected blogging.

Here are some of the pet portraits I created for people who needed gifts this past holiday season.  I create these (and other custom work) all year, so if you need a Valentines gift…or Presidents Day gift (?) or an anytime gift, let me know!  You can even order online.

I’ve revamped my website, if you have time, take a gander.  Any feedback is appreciated, if you feel so inclined.

I am excited for 2016…it has started off on a pretty great note, with lots of possibilities! I hope you are having a great one so far, too.

Prints available here!

I drew this cavalcade of glorious cats in my sketchbook a month or so ago, and finally decided to make something with it.  The drawing was done in pen (on lunch break) and I always thought it was a fun one, so here we are.  As usual, I added it to some different items…

Or a long sleeve t-shirt…also available in short sleeved…

It is so fun making all of these things.  If you can, please share with family and friends…wouldn’t it be great to get something with original art/design/illustration as a gift this year?

I doodled while watching football with my hubby on Sunday night.  Then I put it on a coffee mug, because I want a coffee mug with this on it. 😀

I have such good time making all of these, whether they end up as prints, mugs, or dog t-shirts ;-). Or if they are just doodles in a margin or my sketchbook.  I really love drawing, and I’ve loved finding a community with whom to share all of these crazy little designs.  Thank you again for following along, and stay tuned for more. 😀
