Flower Power Pup

Hey everyone! I hope everyone had an amazing 4th of July. We were able to sneak away to see family in Wisconsin. We didn’t do too much, but it was a nice change of scenery. While we were there, I was able to work on some drawings during some downtime. We had our pup Moe along with us for our getaway. So he inspired this cute drawing of this flower power pup. I drew this using Procreate and it took me the longest time to figure out what color of background I wanted to use. I finally landed on the color purple. I feel like I do not use it enough. I just uploaded this cute flower power pup to my Society6 and Redbubble shops. It is available on prints and array of products. Enjoy!

Cute Summer Raccoon

Summer is officially here! The pool is up, the fire pit is set up and the heat is definitely rising. It’s time to kick off the summer right. It will be nice to finally be around family and have some much needed fun. I drew summer raccoon to give some happiness right now. This cute little fella was created digitally with my iPad using Procreate. I love all the background which makes me feel like I’m in a summer field of wild flowers. This cute raccoon is now available on prints and products in my Society6 and Redbubble shops. Enjoy!

Homebody

Hey everyone! Are you a homebody? I am! I’m not ashamed to admit! On normal circumstances I enjoy being at home, having alone time to my self and like being in my own element. I guess you can say I’m an introverted extrovert. I love being around my friends and family but I tend to hit a wall and need to have space to myself to recharge. Anyone else like that? I will say that with this pandemic, I am getting a little stir crazy. I don’t know how much longer I can manage staying in my house and not start to hate it. I know I am not the only one! I did this quick drawing last night to help keep my sanity. I drew this cute happy pup in his house with the phrase homebody. He is definitely happy to stay home!  Keep calm everyone, stay safe and keep being creative!

Birthday Pup

Today is a special day! It is my youngest son’s 5th birthday. I can’t believe he’s 5! That means I have been not working (except freelance) for 5 years now. It boggles my mind. It feels like he was born just yesterday and now we are headed to Kindergarten round up for next year. How is this possible! Well my youngest son is obsessed with all puppies and kitties, actually animals in general. I wanted to make a cute pup in honor of his birthday. I created this puppy in Procreate and really love how he turned out. Happy Birthday Goober!

Whimsical Spring Goose

Hey Everyone! It’s Wednesday and the middle of a busy week for me. I have some projects in the works and am volunteering at my son’s fun fair at his school this Friday. I’m looking forward to the weekend! It’s finally feeling like Spring around here and all the flowers are starting to sprout out of the ground. Spring is really one of my favorite seasons! This past week this gem started out as a doodle and blossomed into this fun whimsical goose. I think it really represents Spring. This was drawn and colored in digitally with my Procreate app. Enjoy!

Fall is my Favorite

It’s finally the weekend! It’s been a busy week for us with yard work, meetings, practices and games. We are so ready for fall. It’s my household’s favorite season. But mother nature has other plans right now and it still feels like 100 degrees outside. We can’t wait for the cooler weather. I created this during the past week because fall is officially in my mind set. This sweet badger was created digitally on my iPad. Enjoy!

Rainbow Turtle

Hey everyone! It’s finally the beginning of a new week. Time to start fresh…here’s to hoping it’s a good one! Here’s a cute little turtle that I drew this past weekend. He was starting to look a little drab at first, so I decided to spruce up his shell. I think the rainbow colors definitely helped this little guy out. I used the program Procreate from start to finish creating him. I hope he brightens your day!

Blooming Hedgehog

Today’s drawing was inspired by all the crazy weather we have had in the past couple of weeks. Mother Nature just can’t decide what season it wants to be lately. I’m so ready for Spring! So while it was snowing recently, I created this piece. It was sketched out with pencil and outlined with pen in my sketchbook. I then took a picture of it and finished coloring it in with Procreate. I’m very pleased with how it turned out and I really enjoy using this awesome technology to enhance my artwork!
