Inktober Roundup!

 This year, my "goal" for #inktober was simple. "Some days, I will do an ink drawing and maybe post it on the internet."
And here they all are. Happy November, friends!
I drew a chicken. Because I wanted to.

Nice Chicken... mean raven.

An Ampersand...wich!

More chickens. On a light table!

Alive without breath, as cold as death, never thirsty, ever drinking, all in mail, never clinking.

Rapunzel and her hair. She had to get around somehow!

Weird Chicken. I was trying to get a super simple, shape-y version.

There they are--all my little inktober sketches!

Cricut cartridges, finally

So, I haven't posted any art in quite awhile. This is because I went from a job where I was allowed to show what I was doing, to one where the art isn't released until months after I've done it. I started in January, and now I can finally show the first couple cartridges I designed! (Well, as of a couple weeks ago. Life is crazy.)

First, we have the Holly and Ivy cartridge for Christmas!

You can see some of the images bigger here:

Oh, and also buy the cartridge. If you want.

Also, 3d Floral Home Decor! The very first cartridge I designed. I hadn't ever done anything with paper flowers before. Never. I just figured it out as I went, and some of them turned out really cool!

Here are a couple projects the design team made with my flowers:

I've been watching the internet and had fun seeing other projects that bloggers have made with my flowers. Unfortunately, you can't buy this cartridge (yet?) because it was released exclusively on HSN.  Because its really cool. Right?

Cake Topper

I really am alive and well and doing art! Really! Its just, I can't really show you most of the art I've done lately, at least not for a few more months. But there is sonething I made recently that I can show you--my wedding cake topper! As of now I can only show you the digital version, but I cut this out of paper using a Cricut Explore and - voila! - awesome personalized wedding cake topper.

I can't take all the credit for this, because although there are tweaks and stylization, these are heavily based on photos by the amazing Kate Jeppson. Check out her website:


Here's how it looked on the cake. Again, photo by the talented Kate Jeppson.
