Congratulations Art Licensing Show! Their official virtual ribbon cutting launch is today, March 23rd. You can check out the new Art Licensing Show website here.
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.
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!
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.
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!
