I consumed an unknown quantity of wheat thins while drawing Mable the Squirrel here. I’m fighting off a bug of some kind, and I’m fighting it with crackers and drawing. It seems to be working. 😂 Anyway, this is part of my #cozycritterseries. Mable is gifting someone special with a lovingly wrapped acorn. +

I created Stan last winter. Then I re-drew him last summer. And yesterday I re-drew him again. And NOW he looks like he did in my head. There really is no other way to improve, or to find your illustration style, other than simply doing the work. And in some cases, doing the work over and over again! Stan here is part of my #cozycritterseries, and will be one of the designs features in a set of greeting cards I’m creating. +

I’m reworking a series from last year to create a set of holiday cards! I didn’t have time to get them ready for this season, but I’ll have them ready for next year. This is Ferdinand the snowy owl. 😊 He’s mightily festive, with his nest all done up for the holidays. +

A couple more elements from the larger holiday pattern I’m working on 😊. A pot of tea, and an iced cranberry bun. Which sounds prrrrrrretty good right about now. I have an unfortunate allergy to cranberries, but they’re delicious!

These are actually elements from a larger thing I’m working on right now. Can you tell I’m feeling super cozy these days? I mean, the tea tag on this literally says, “Cozy Tea.” Also, I have to confess I really wanted a festive movie playing while working, so I clicked in the first thing that popped up in the holiday section on Netflix. It happened to be The Princess Switch. 😂 Ohhhh boy. .

I’m still super busy with commissions, but trying to be better about making time for personal work as well this year. So here is my first holiday illustration of the season! Some cheery marshmallows basking in the warmth of hot cocoa, and some tasty treats to keep them company. -

Hi everyone! I’ve been a busy Bee working on commissions the past couple of weeks. I still have a few more to finish before December 25th, but I wanted to take some time for personal work today. I made a cozy fox with a mug of tea! I hope you like them. I’m thinking of making cards and/or prints — let me know if you’d be interested! I’m off on holiday for a week, but I’ll be back to ship orders out on November 27th. 🤗

Well, #inktober is officially over! I’m back to working on other illustrations and products to put in my shop. Thanks so much to everyone who’s placed orders! Everything’s going right back into the business so I can hopefully find more goodies for next year. 🤗
