My kids still play with my
old “vintage” Fisher Price Little People. I find my people all the time; between the couch cushions, under the beds, lined up on the windowsills…
Ellie is into fairies lately, so I thought I’d draw her a little woodland creature. Then I decided Gwen should have a fairy of her own, too, so I worked up a purple version with darker hair. I think I’ll make these into prints with the girls’ names at the bottom, and frame them to hang in their room.
Most of my illustrations are related to WordPress themes these days, and this is no exception. I recently created a new theme called Pachyderm and this is the default header image — so cute! I love that WordPress allows me to combine my love for web development and illustration. I may consider adding this to the shop as a print…
I took a few minutes to work on a simple Christmas card design for our family–with a focus on showing off the babes, of course. Now let’s see if I actually work up the ambition to get them sent out before the holiday!
I’ve had inquiries about custom work from a couple of my best customers since I had Gwen, and I thought I should make a shop announcement: I’m not currently taking custom orders. Between family and work, my free time is limited, and I’m currently focused on WordPress theme design and development and getting my fat butt into some semblance of shape.
So I apologize, particularly to my regulars–ya’ll are awesome and I very much appreciate your continued support over the last few years. I’ll make another announcement when I’m accepting custom orders again.
