Assorted Hand Drawn Pattern Tiles

Assorted pattern tiles to make your own paper

One of my addictions is making patterns. Now that’s strange because I rarely use patterns in my clothing or around my house.  But my eyes are super attracted to them. I especially like to see patterns on stationery. I love notebooks, cards, wrapping paper, etc. I’ve gathered some of my favorites in this little bundle:   You can purchase the bundle in my Etsy Shop …

Creating at a time like this

Best nine

I’m constantly oscillating between creating fun and appealing graphics and burying myself in my sketchbook to draw melancholic girls. Since the US election and with the looming change that is happening in the world (the rise of the alt-right and such)  I find it hard to focus on ‘business as usual’. It’s difficult to do the hustle pretending that this Holiday season is like any …

Praise the Side-Project

Do you feel overwhelmed by creative business advice? I know I do. Every day I discover a new podcast, a new blog or I read a new article about how to (insert miraculous growth guarantee here) and it sends me into this tailspin of time waste.

This clip art set was born as usual, with pencil and paper. The process is a bit long but it’s so rewarding. I …

A mushroom clip art set and pattern – freebie

Watercolors are my relax therapy. It’s lovely that a jar of water and a pan of color can make me forget about everything else. Yesterday I thought I’d make some mushrooms, I wanted to try a new brush. One thing I’m terrible at is working with paper. Cutting and folding evenly is impossible for me, so there goes my dream of learning how to bind …

Drawing a little every day

Sneek Peek

I’ve been overwhelmed by work. Can’t complain. However I haven’t had time to sit down and draw too much. I did start a new clipart set. The Design Garden course was so full of material that if I don’t put into practice what I learned often enough, I know I will forget. My drawing is improving, but not so my “business sense”, so I decided …
