Happy March, everyone!
How is everyone's almost-spring going? LA is currently freaking out because water is falling from the sky (what IS that?), EEK! So I figured to dream of sunnier days, with pretty green clovers everywhere.
A new design has been added to the Society6.com shop: Lucky Owl. This March owl was featured in last year's Cozy Reverie calendar. Working with this illustration again got me to thinking how much I missed working on illustrating children's books. Granted, I've only published two, so that is more of a reason to go back to it again. I miss drawing the happy owl collection too - those little guys are so happy and bright. :)
* Finishing up the custom orders is priority number one. Since the beginning of the year, I have had more custom orders than I have had in the past two years! I am so flattered to be asked to work on these pieces, and I hope the clients love them. I am always nervous every time I get a new order because I don't ever want anyone dissatisfied. Art is in the eye of the beholder, so I can only try my best to capture a client's imagination and bring it to life.
* The #MartyGal March paper doll has been completed! The January and February versions are still available in the Etsy shop, but only for a limited time. Etsy gives items four months before they expire, so be sure to purchase before they are gone! If you like Marty's style, check out my Polyvore account - now you can dress like her too! :)
* I am in the process on creating a personalized doll! I posted a notice on my Facebook page this week, asking for people that are willing to go through the testing phase of this product. The doll would be illustrated by yours truly, and the artwork would be printed onto fabric. Once that process is complete, I will sew and stuff the doll myself. I loved the idea of being able to do make dolls as gifts, so why not give it an extra personal touch? Currently in the middle of the very first doll, I can't wait to report back to you all.
Be sure to check out the Society6 shop for these tees and more! There's sizes for the whole family!
