A Wee Bunny

A blue wee bunny for a friend's baby boy! This is my first stuffie and it was harder than I thought it would be- the bottom is circular and that was the hardest to sew on. Free pattern from Wee Wonderfuls- but most of you probably know that already!

Illustration Friday-visitors

A super quick one this week. Getting busy now but I still wanted to put up something new. I thought about all these bugs that visit my apartment during the summer time..and by wintertime they are gone. I wonder where they go?

Rockin' Girl

I'm a rockin' girl! Both Anja and Zari.zhm gave me the rockin' girl blogger award. Thank you so much, ladies! I love Anja's color palette (colorful yet sophisticated) and Zarifi inspired me to do this-combine illustration with photos. You two are rockin' too!

So I'll pass on the award to the ladies over at Illustration for kids. They are one of the best things that has happened since I started this blog...getting to know them and forming our illustration group. Just look at our summer mailer.

They are Claire, Paula, Jenn, Susan, Anette and Holli.

So busy busy here in the chicken coop. A leisurely summer is ending and now I have two huge projects that are going on at the same time. Some fun stuff last week though- I got a chance to meet with a very nice client face to face (a rare thing these days with emailing and the web). What a refreshing change! I got out of the house, woohoo!

Anyways, have a good week, everyone. Things are really crazy here but I hope to keep posts on a somwhat regular basis. Cheers!

I made a house tissue cover! The awesome pattern is by My Paper Crane from book The Crafters Companion. I basicly picked up this book mainly because of this pattern. So cute. The chimney was a little tough to put on though.

Here is a 2D version:
I originally wanted to make a bunch of these fabric collages and sell them. But now I am not so sure. I am, however, taking steps to open an etsy shop. I have some fun stuff in the works! More soon.

Illustration Friday-Emergency (& Moon)

Combining two IF topics = happy result!

I had an unfinished piece for a previous topic- "Moon." Just wanted to finish it up and add something for this week's it ended up being a space ambulance. I would of never thought of that in the first place. Thank you, IF! It sure is fun drawing ill aliens.

Friends of Lulu- Comic Anthology

I'm thrilled to be a contributor for this comics anthology that Friends of Lulu put out to promote female comic artists. There was a book release party this week and I finally got my copy! The hilarious cover is by Miss Lasko-Gross, with more than 50 female cartoonists contributing.

The title is The Girls' Guide to Guys' Stuff and here is my contribution. Looks a little different that my usual work because I used a real brush and ink with this one!

I was also fortunate enough to do the cover art for their last anthology. This was back in 2003.
Its amazing to see how my art has evolved since 4 years ago!

I'm back....already?!

Myrtle Beach, South Carolina

Whew! What a wonderful trip it was. We had an ocean front room with a balcony- highly recommended! It was amazing to wake up, have coffee, and just stare out into the ocean. I didn't do any work at all, but there were long walks on the beach (heehee) and a yummy fondue meal. Now I'm back in the coop. Some of you left really funny comments (with lots of chicken puns)! Gotta catch up on everyone's blogs.
