  • Halloween! Oh my! I have a set for that.

    I really LOVE making Halloween art! All of the creepy crawlies, ghosts, haunted houses.... zombies!! Pumpkins! Love that stuff. This year, I've put out a new Halloween set and it was a ton of fun to make. I kept it whimsical for party invitations, gift tags, Halloween bags or a good old Halloween coffee mug? I'd use it! Planner stickers? For sure. All good for PODs too, ta least if you buy it in my store. I have this set listed in all of the regulars like CreativeMarket, DesignBundles, etc. but they each have different licensing terms. Mine are a little more lenient here.
  • Autumn Foliage: Wreaths & Leaves New Set

    I've spent the last week or so creating graphics for my favorite time of the year - Halloween (and autumn too!). I am so not a summer person because I seriously melt in heat above 65 degrees. Fall is my time of the year! The weather is perfect, the trees looks amazing and there is tons of yummy candy up for grabs. Yep, sounds perfect to me.

     

  • Weekly Art: Found Poetry & Little Cities Graphics Creator

    Hello everyone! I'm back from a very long vacation this summer. We went to Europe to spend some time with my husband's family and friends and it was great. Super relaxing and fun. I'm glad to be home though. It was a long time to be away and seriously.... I missed my bed so much.

    I didn't make any art while away but I've made up for it since then by joining in a bunch of art swaps. The set below is found poetry, one of my most favorite themes ever! It's ridiculous fun cutting out little bits of text to make up the silliest poems. Of course, you could go all serious with it but I like the weird poetry versions myself.

  • Upcoming - Whimsical City Creator Set

    I've been hard at work on a new creator set for designers to use in their projects. This one will have multiple city buildings, including apartment buildings, stores, cafes and more! I've also drawn up lots of trees to pretty up your city along with people to place and cars to drive. There are even hills, roads and sidewalks to build your own fun city block.

    And I just realized this set would be cool for endless runner / side scrolling game or app. And I want to make a game now.... easily distracted.

  • Is it too early for Christmas?

    I know, I know.... June is a ridiculous time to start posting about Christmas graphics but it's not me, I swear! I'd be putting this stuff off until at least September normally. But I noticed that I'm getting likes on an older set of Christmas Hats I made a few years back. This means my fellow creative designers are already on the go with their Christmas making graphics. I'm blaming them! LOL. I'm on board. Christmas graphics it is, regardless of the weather outside!

    I do already have a set of Christmas hats I made a few years back but I wanted to do a brand new set with updated graphics and add in a few extras too. This new Santa Hat Set includes 16 different hats as well as featuring those same hats with lots of cool and fun labels like "toy maker" and "elf boss" - just for fun! You can also use your graphics editing software to add your own names and titles to the hats for extra personalization.

  • Weekly Art 2: Old Masters & New Daisies

    I've been sorting out all of my graphics and art over the past week since I bought a new computer and REALLY need to sort stuff out. I don't think I've sorted my file system in well over 5 years. You can imagine the mess, right? 

    Above are some older graphics made new again! I pulled out some old cat illustrations to add to my portfolio but took a bit of time to give them an update. I have a thing for cats. They've always been my favorite pet to hang out with. I work with one super crabby cat and one ridiculously friendly cat lounging around nearby. 

  • Weekly Art 1: Happy Friday!

    Hello everyone! It's nice to be back to blogging again with my PPF pals after a short break. You may have noticed that I changed my website completely and my blog too. Quite a bit of work but so much smoother and easier to use. I'm glad to be back to blogging and visiting with everyone.

    Above is my ridiculously chubby unicorn drawn on my iPad using the Apple Pencil and wowza, do I ever love that thing. I use it with Procreate app and it's so fun and easy. Honestly... I've completely given up using my Wacom, except for image editing. I never thought that would happen. 

  • The Usual Suspects: Woodlands Character Creator

    I've been working hard on a new graphics set over the past couple of weeks, fun little woodland forest animals. This character creator set was a pure joy to make. Sketching out these funky little guys and then drawing a series of little outfits and bright pop flowers was the easiest (fun) work I've had in a long time. The new set features 5 woodland creatures that you can use au naturel or dress up in various outfits. I've included a big set of bonus florals along with pendants, banners, flags and signs and more. It's packed with over 150 items.

      

  • Hand painted Picasso shoes

    I made myself some Picasso shoes last weekend! Michaels had a sale on white canvas shoes so I immediately scooped up a pair and then went back for more  a few days later. I had tons of fun painting these ones. I wanted to do something really colorful and I'm a huge fan of Picasso so it was a great combo to give a whirl.
