Chef Kitty is back!

(click on art for a larger view)

I first found out about this fun blog called They Draw and Cook from Roz (check out her adorable entry here). They invite artists and designers to draw/render a recipe. Since I love drawing food, I had to do this piece. Anyone can participate and submit, so go check it out! Thanks to Nate and Salli for this wonderful idea.

Chef Kitty first appeared when I made some recipe cards. With all her top secret recipes, I'm sure there is a picture book story somewhere. I also forgot how much I love illustrating and designing at the same time. I want to get more of those projects.

On another note, I want to thank Megumi for the sunshine award! Check out her adorable work here.

April Digistamps

This month's Chicken Girl Design Digistamp Collection is now available at I {heart} Papers. Its been wonderful seeing how the design team uses them. I'm very inspired by their pick of fresh color combinations. (Alot of "oh wow, how come I never thought of using those colors?") Check them out:

Christy Tammy Judy Lori Loretta Shelly Kate

I will be rolling out a new collection every month, and what a great learning experience its been so far. Being more aware of the holidays/seasons and the way crafters think.

Happy Stamping!

Print & Pattern, The Book

Many of you know the popular Print & Pattern blog recently came out with a book. Just got my hands on it yesterday and not only is it a great source of inspiration, I'm also in it!
I'm so proud to be one of the 120 designers in this book. It should be in everyone's inspiration library. I love the pattern initials of each designer's name on the upper corner. A well edited book with tons of eye candy. Highly recommended- get it on Amazon.

New Season, New Banner

Thanks to the many nice, encouraging words about the bear and chicken on my last blog banner update, I've been playing around with story ideas for them. Since the weather is so nice now, its time for a Spring look.
Bye bye, Winter! (and the old banner.)

And a thank you to Julissa for giving me the Sunshine Award! Check out her beautiful children's illustrations over at her blog.

P.S.-Happy Easter!
