4 x 4 Stickers

Stickers!!! My first professionally printed promo stickers. Build-a-Sign kindly offered to print some stickers for me, they are technically bumper stickers but they are a great size at 4" x 4". With the MoCCA Art Fest coming up, I am hoping to give some away to my customers (wink wink), stick them on bags, and I also ended up sticking one on my moleskine sketchbook:

The stickers have a nice gloss coating to them yet thin and durable. I'm going to have alot of great uses for these. Yay!

Making Button Badges!

Something just for fun! I haven't made any fun products in so long. In anticipation for the MoCCA Art festival I'm going to be participating at in April (did I mention that?), it is a great excuse to finally make some fun stuff, and also going back to New York City to see my friends and family. I can't believe I haven't been back since last July. Its been too long!

Making 1" buttons doesn't seem to have enough space for me, so I printed some backer cards to make a complete illustration. Plus there is something so satisfying about designing the whole package.

The thing with going ahead and making a bunch of inventory is not knowing what will sell and what won't. I struggle with that alot as I realized "I'm not my own customer."

I'd like to take a poll: which one do you like? Super Cat or Evil Robot? Please leave me a comment and let me know!

Be Mine Patisserie

I really fell in love with the color palette I used for the Valentine ABCs that I continued to play with it and used it on other illos.

Happy Valentine's Day!

Have you send out your Valentines yet?

I've been a bit obsessed with the ABCs lately. After such great feedback and response from the Animal ABCs and Christmas ABCs, I took on the challenge to do Valentine's day. With a little help from my husband ("Q" and "Z" was quite tricky), it was fun coming up with this and using a distinctive vintage color palette, thanks again to

Check out all the ABCs I have so far over at my flickr set.

Happy Chinese New Year!

I've been toying with the idea of designing my own red envelopes for Chinese New Year.

Gong Hei Fat Choi, everyone!
