Halloween Postcards are here!!

I'm so excited to finally get these!! :D 

They'll be going out to anyone who wants one so, if you want to be on the list, send me your address! :)

I had a great experience using I had a minor emergency after submitting the files and within seconds of realizing it, I was able to connect with a live rep via instant chat who took it out of the printing que, opened up the job, and let me resubmit my files.  Soooo thankful for their great customer service!!
I will definitely use them again and the printing quality is awesome as well.

10/25 Doodles: Pandas!

Who doesn't love the squishy face of a panda?

The other night I tagged along with my mom to a meeting and brought my sketch book with me. Sometimes its good to just get away from the every day space you occupy and sketch someplace else.  Tho I was technically present at the table during this "meeting",  I was lost in a world of watercolor pencils, new black pens, and little roly poly pandas. :)

I desperately need to get out of the mindset that some doodles are not "good enough" for a nice sketch book because I'm currently having an argument with myself over sketching in my nice moleskin.  Part of me doesn't want to mess it up and the other part of me is saying, "Don't be stupid, it's a SKETCHBOOK!"  These turned out pretty well and I think I just need to get over myself and DO IT!

Halloween Illo

For the last month or so I've been trying to finish this illustration so I could send out postcards. I finally finished!! I went through, which I have not used before. Hopefully everything turns out fine and I can get them sent out in the mail this weekend or early next week.

I'm still experimenting with watercolor, not sure I quite have it down yet, but I'm getting better! :)

Here's the final illustration :)
