Thanks to my awesome printing company, I am now able to offer some of your favorite long or banner prints in smaller sizes–8×24 and 10×30, to be exact. This means you can enjoy your favorite designs for less. I’ll be listing the new sizes in the Calobee Doodles shop over the next few days. Enjoy!

new poster design: numbers & veggies

numbers & veggies

So after finishing numbers & fruits and numbers & candy, it was only a matter of time before I tried my hand at something healthier–vegetables!

Once again, I spent a long time deliberating exactly which veggies would make the cut (teehee.) Potatoes and onions fell by the wayside; the former were not visually stunning (although they’re one of my favorite foods) and my drawings of the latter were barely decipherable. Summer squash was a close second to pumpkins, but pumpkins won out for being more easily identifiable. I fussed over the cabbages in row 5 for a long time, and I’m still not certain they won’t be mistaken for Brussels sprouts, but hey, what can you do? And yes, I realize tomatoes are technically a fruit, not a veggie. Just play along. There’s a reason I’m not a scientific illustrator. 😉

You’ll soon find this poster in the Calobee Doodles shop!

all dolled up

Paper doll - sheet 1paper doll - boy

I’ve been busy working on these new paper doll patterns for the Print-a-doodles section of the shop. I used to love to create paper dolls as a kid, and this week’s project reminded me why… getting creative with the clothes is the best part. I could spend hours coloring and decorating dresses and t-shirts and pants, mixing and matching with different accessories–it was always less about the play and more about the process for me.

Anyway, the result is two paper doll sets, one boy and one girl. Each set comes with two pages of pre-made outfits, plus a third template page that’s blank so you can design your own wardrobe. The dolls are designed to be printed on heavy 8.5 x 11 card stock for durability, but you could also add magnets to the back to create a fridge playset. You can print as many copies as you like, which make these an entertaining, yet inexpensive, party favor or gift. Just be careful with the scissors!

I hope you’ll find these sweet dolls versatile and inspiring.
