  • 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.

  • Weekly Art 3: Art Nouveau and Laundry Pile Ups

    I finally had the opportunity to make an ATC tonight! WOO! It's been a while since I've had a bit of free art time to do what I want. I joined a travelling trade group over at illustratedATCs.com with the theme of art nouveau and this one above is my contribution. I was able to trade her for a super cool art nouveau cat!  The card above was created in ink and markers with a bit of gel pen thrown in for good measure.
  • 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. 

  • Cute robots and their wee monster friends

    I made some pink blobby monsters with a sad robot. One amazing thing I love about Procreate is that it creates automatic videos of your art for you. I didn't realize this until I had drawn a few pictures. It's seriously fun to look back on your creative process and see how you get from A (being a horribly messy scribble) to B (a nice enough drawing). I did some post editing on Photoshop on this art. I've been more traditional rather than digital in recent years but this new combo has me all happy about digital art once again.
