The X Kids


My daughter enjoys some of the tamer episodes of The X-Files, but it’s hard to find kid-appropriate fan art for a show whose main villain smokes like a chimney and whose two heroes routinely wield guns. I’ve also wanted to draw “cute” versions of my favorite agents for a while, so here they are!

Evolution of a Family Portrait

Every few years I revise our illustrated “family portrait”, and this weekend I decided we were due for an update. Gwen is no longer a baby, we adopted a dog, and my hair is looking a lot less saturated these days (I still can’t bring myself to draw it white! Maybe in another four years…)

It’s fun to see how we’ve evolved. It’s only been seven years, but so much has happened in that time, it feels like ages!

fairies for ellie and gwen

purple fairyfairy

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.

Inspired by some of my favorite childhood toys — we had the house and the farm, and I remember playing with them for hours. These days I get to watch my kids play with the very same toys, except now they’re called “vintage” for some unfathomable reason. 🙂

… but she didn’t listen.

I had a long flight from LAX to Hawaii last week (life is rough); there was no in-flight internet, and the book I’d brought was only mildly engaging. I decided to work on a new Valentine’s doodle, just for fun.

This little girl is available as a small print or poster in my Etsy shop.
