New Stuff!
March 16th, 2012

Sorry to have been neglecting the blog. Seems like I’ve been micro blogging on facebook more and more. I’ve also had deadline, after deadline since the beginning of the year on top of consulting with 11 talented illustrators and trying to build up my licensing portfolio during some free time. Licensing is taking a front seat this year and I’ve been actively building collections and doing a little bit of style re-branding too. I’ve created a new logo and thought I’d share some sneaky peeks of some new licensing pieces I’ve been working on.

I’ve been working on doing some re-branding for myself since my efforts to separately market the children’s & licensing side of my business hasn’t work like I planned. They tend to crossover all the time, so I’ve decided to brand them as one and not try so hard to keep them separated. I’ve been playing with ideas for a while and really wanted something I could easily change if I wanted to, while still keeping a consistent look. I have a entire page filled up with characters and objects so I’ll never get bored. Here are just a few:

Now I just need to get my sites all combined and I’ll be set!
