#MerMay Week 1

I am participating in #MerMay on Instagram this year and I have already made it a whole week of posting daily. I’m having a lot of fun trying out new techniques, reviving my old ways and just pushing myself as much as possible. There have already been a couple that have frustrated me or that I have spent way too much time on, and in order to complete this 30 day challenge, I have to be able to complete these in a timely manner. 

So far it is teaching me to relax a bit, especially posting those created with traditional media, which is WAY out of my comfort zone. 

But I love growing and I really love a challenge, so it’s on!

Using a list of prompts has helped me stay on track and I’m finding that it’s actually a really fun way to generate ideas I would normally not explore. 

If this continues to go well, I may redo a couple of my merms and create a zine or mermay art book. 🙂

2016 Christmas Card Roundup

custom Christmas card illustrated hand drawn personalized

2016 was a huge year for my custom, hand-drawn Christmas cards. I had so much fun drawing the families of friends new and old.

I always love looking through them once the season is all wrapped up and people have had a chance to get their cards out to family and friends. This year does not disappoint! 

Enjoy looking through the gallery and subscribe to my Custom Christmas Card Illustration Newsletter if you’re interested in commissioning me for something like this in the future.

I plan to do a batch in the next couple months for just regular family illustrations.
