Drawing pretty, flowery things in an effort to ignore the fact that the ground outside is still covered in several inches of snow.
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.
There’s a new October wallpaper in progress, but in the meantime, here’s a doodle I created a few years ago that perfectly fits my mood. Picking apples and carving pumpkins, getting lost in corn mazes, yummy baking and hot soups and stews–fall is officially here and I’m loving it. “I found the perfect one” was one of my first illustrations inspired by this wonderful autumn feeling, and it remains a favorite.
The Calobee Doodles website has an updated look for fall! Nothing huge, just some fall colors and a few acorns scattered about. It’s so fun (and easy) to change themes with this system, I can’t wait to start on winter’s theme.
Speaking of which, the website is getting some great press among design blogs lately… many thanks to the following folks for including Calobee Doodles in their web design showcases:
