Sandy Carter is an amazing documentary photographer who found my shop while doing a search on Etsy. I was honored when she asked me to create some doodles to be used in a book she wrote for her granddaughter. Here are two of the six panels:

Here’s a cute one… this is a studio sign I created for Kathy at Simply Whimsical:
All hail the mighty cupcake! Kathy creates stylish, elegant aprons that make me wish I could cook. 😉
