Harvest Time
September 14th, 2011

Fall is just around the corner, so it’s time to start decorating! I illustrated a fun bulletin board set for Creative Teaching Press featuring all things fall. They also have them as stickers and some other items. I loved doing this project and got to incorporate some of my Granddaddy’s barn wood into the mix.

i {heart} cameras
August 18th, 2011

Most of you all know I have a vintage camera collection I inherited from my father-in-law and I love all of them. I literally have cameras on display in every room on my house (yes, even the bathroom, I also have a vintage typewriter in there, but that’s another story!). I’m love of all things camera and I’ve always wanted to make an iphone case that looked like a camera and now I have:

One of them is also available as a t-shirt and hoodie:

You can order these from Society6 and they are available for all iphones and ipods plus they offer them as skins as well. I also have some of my Typography Photography™
collection as cases, prints & laptop skins so take a peek at those as well.

Brother & Sister T-shirt
June 15th, 2011

I’ve teamed up with Love, Linda and licensed some cute t-shirt designs for brother to be, sister to be, big brother, little brother, big sister and little sister. When I was pregnant with Ocee, I could never find cute brother/sister shirts so the only way was to make them.

They make super cute gifts and come is sizes from 3M-4T (onesies & t-shirts). You can order a few sizes here but smaller sizes can be purchased directly through Love, Linda (she’s great!). And if you know of a retailer who needs these in their shop, please pass our info along!

I’ve been on an alligator kick lately. I have a huge empty canvas hanging in Ocee’s room waiting for an alligator to appear on it, but I can decide what I want it to look like yet. I’ve got sketches galore but not settled on one, but I have seemed to show up in some other pieces. This one is for our current promo mailer for Illustration For Kids:

and this one is for a greeting card/sticker combo:

One day I’ll decide on “his” but for now I’ll just stare at the white canvas. At least he doesn’t know it’s not supposed to be blank.

Later gators!

April 7th, 2011

I recently designed some stickers for Creative Teaching Press. They are one of my favorite clients to work with because they give me total creative freedom, plus they are all really, really nice and appreciative of the work I do.

Jesus & Mary Magdalene
March 30th, 2011

This is a piece that appears in April’s issue of The Little Lutheran magazine for kids. It was a nice surprise to see it also made the cover.

I finished up this piece a few days before Ocee was born. It will be fun to look back on projects and remember at what point in my pregnancy I did them. Unfortunately a lot of the memories will be, “Oh, I remember that project, I had to quit in the middle of illustrating that spread to throw up.”

Getting back in the swing of things
January 24th, 2011

Thanks so much for all your sweet comments on O’Hare! We’re still getting our schedule worked out and this week and I’m easing back into work things but taking it slow. I have some baby bib and baby bedding designs on the calendar this week which I thought were perfect timing!

Here’s a piece I recently completed for a math workbook for Creative Teaching Press. It’s in my found object style.
