All you need is... L O V E and a Cat

February is here and I got the inspiration to make this Valentine's Day illustration with love and a cat. 


Happy New Year

Happy New Year 2015. I have been working on some new illustrations with cats.

I love the look on this sweet girl is all bundled up in her winter sweater and dreaming of snowflakes.


Happy Halloween! EEK it's Frankie Stein!

Happy Halloween! This is a new illustration I completed for Trick or Treat! I've named him Frankie Stein... haha! Well, he seems a bit younger than the adult version of Frankenstein. And he's got plenty of companions on his Halloween adventures — a black cat, ghost, spiders and bats. Happy Halloween.

I did a little redesign on Lulu.


Surtex 2014 promo video

Countdown to Surtex 2014. Here's my little video promo of Lulu and the gang.

It's kind of short and sweet with some snippets of my illustrations and a couple of patterns. Click the image above to go to Vimeo to see it. Or go to this link!


Surtex 2014 promo and flyer

It's been a natural evolution that Lulu and the gang above have been represented in my marketing materials for Surtex 2014.

It started off with a business card hello message to being the little spokesperson in my Surtex video promo here. Now she is on the press kits too. She feels a bit like my alter ego.


Christmas Art and Winter Owl

Even though the calendar says Spring, it's still been quite chilly here in New England. So we've needed our hats —like this little owl and his red hat.


New ~ Red Sweater, Tea Drinking Bear illustration.

I've been working on some new designs and was surprised by this Red Sweater Bear that showed up. I'm not really one of those artists that lacks for design ideas. In fact, I have little notebooks and journals filled with my notes when I have an idea or some inspiration. I always keep a little notebook by my computer to jot them down. The difficult process for me is focusing on which one to do next!

I thought that this bear would look great wearing a red nordic sweater. It actually has bears on the front of the design but you cannot see it very well. I decided to give him a cup of tea. I am a tea drinker. My favorite blend is English Breakfast Tea. What's yours? After the sweater and the tea came together, I thought that I would add this to my Etsy shop and then came across the great quote — "A Cup of Tea is A Cup of Peace". Just seems to go perfectly with this little bear in his woodland setting.

Enjoy your tea!
