A Love Carving

Well, hello again so soon. This evening I was tinkering around with the old adobe illustrator, messing around doodling like I do;  and I decided I wanted to create a Valentines Day card for my grandparents, because they’re adorable and old and I just adore them.  I figured, I had two choices, I could go out and buy a card, or make one myself, and why wouldn’t I just make one myself, I could do that, you can do that, we all can do that! So, I’m sharing with you my card design for the old folks I love. It’s nothing fancy but it’s from the heart, and that’s what matters. Also, I kind of like it a bit.

Happy New Year, and Books!

I’ve been quite productive thus far in 2015, which surprised the hell out of me. I guess when you need to take your mind off things, being able to just focus on an art project is one of the best things you can do; and because I was sick to death of thinking so much and mulling things over, I decided to get my art on. I found some inspiration from the book, My Ideal Bookshelf by Jane Mount (it’s right up my alley and I love it and she’s brilliant!). It’s a lovely book with art work of the spines of books found on people’s bookshelves (that’s a mouthful) and I thought, I have lots of books, I love books, I could do this and put my own style to it! Plus I could get some practice in Adobe Illustrator and just get lost in books, fonts, and color, a win win all around. So, here they are, I did quite a few and I must say, I want to do more, it’s quite addictive fun. Oh, and HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! This year I’m going to draw, paint, imagine, design, learn, teach and share it all with whomever will look and listen. Hope the new year finds you happy and prosperous!     I’ve created a wee gallery for your viewing pleasure, enjoy!
