Silent Night

Merry Christmas Eve everyone! The excitement has been contagious from my two boys and they can’t wait until Christmas tomorrow. I drew this piece digitally on my iPad and it was inspired by some Christmas decor that I bought this season. They are these cute little porcelain houses that light up. I wanted to recreate one of them in a Christmas scene with lights at night. I love how the final piece turned out!

 

Mountain Scene Snowflake

During the Christmas chaos this past week, I tried to take time to decompress and draw a little bit. Here is a fun snow flake that I created during my downtime. It’s made up of primarily cool colors and show cases a mountain scene with a deer. It was really fun to make in Procreate. I used the guided drawing tool which lets you just draw in one grid and it puts the same drawing in all four grids. Definitely made it way easier to make a snowflake using that feature. Make sure to take some time to decompress amongst all the crazy this holiday season! 4 days until Christmas!

 

Thankful Pumpkin

Hey everyone! Here is a piece that I created a while ago, but was waiting more for Thanksgiving. I am so thankful for everyone that supports my art! It was drawn using Adobe Fresco right after I downloaded it. So needless to say, it was an experiment to see all the Fresco had to offer. I still don’t have the program down pat, but I do love the different textures it has to offer. This print is available on product in my Society6 shop.

 

Black Cat and Pumpkin

Today is a two for one kind of day! We have been busy with birthdays, Halloween parties and fighting off colds. So I’m a little behind on my posts! Here is a cute little black cat and jack-o-lantern that I created in Adobe Fresco. I have been playing around with this new program and really like the textures and brushes it has to offer. I really like how this turned out. It definitely has a different feel to it than most of my drawings. Enjoy!

 

I’ll Put a Spell Witch Hat

It’s Hocus Pocus season! I had to create something to go along with one of my favorite movies. I loved watching it when I was a little girl and still love watching it every year. I wanted to continue lettering, so I made sure to practice using my own handwriting for the phrase. I tried to keep the hat and the overall picture simple so the lettering would shine. I like how it turned out, but I will definitely keep working on my hand lettering. Enjoy!

 

Boo-zy!

Monday….I wish it wasn’t Monday! I think I just need one more day of the weekend. I’m sure everyone is feeling the same way. Here is something that will hopefully put a smile on your face. What is it, you ask…It’s a ghost having a cocktail! Tell me this didn’t make you smile just a bit. I created this little ghost guy digitally using Procreate. They have this really cool brush that creates the splatter I used in the background to make it look like spray paint. It definitely helped add the texture this ghost desperately needed. Plus, didn’t you hear the 90’s are back! So it fits in perfectly…lol! This guy will be up in my Society6 and Redbubble shops later today on product. Enjoy!

 

Pumpkin Spice Junkie

It’s finally October and you know what that means….it’s officially pumpkin spice season! It’s my favorite season and I love everything pumpkin spice. I saw a sign with this phrase and thought I have to make an illustration of this. It will accurately depict me for the next couple of months. I used Procreate to draw and create this piece. I also am getting a little better with my hand lettering. I love practicing lettering digitally, since I can erase my mistakes. This print is now available in my Society6 and Redbubble shops on product. Enjoy!

 

Squirrel Catching Acorns

It’s a crazy weather weekend here in Kansas City! We had crazy winds and rain during Saturday during both of my son’s baseball games. We woke up to a very dreary dark day with lots of rain. So needless to say, my Sunday is going to be pretty lazy. This weather makes me sleepy! Here is a drawing that I drew in my sketchbook this past week. I drew it out and outlined it in pen. I used watercolor to bring color to this cute squirrel and his acorns. I really like the personality the watercolor brought to this little sketch in my notebook. I’m hoping this sketch will help bring Fall soon. Enjoy!

 

Floral Pattern

Hey Everyone! Here is a quick floral pattern that I whipped up over the weekend. It started out as just a doodle and grew. I drew it out digitally and painted it with watercolors digitally. I tried to stick with fresh vibrant colors. I really love the vibe of the overall finished piece and I can’t wait to see it on products. Enjoy!

 

Girl in Leaves

Good morning everyone! It’s Labor Day weekend and I can’t wait to relax the next couple of days. Here is a sketch I posted on social media while I was working on it. I knew I wanted it to have a watercolor feel, but I wasn’t sure on the colors I was going to use. So I thought painting it digitally would be the best option. It allows me to mess up and change things unlike physically painting it. I decided to keep the colors very fall inspired, of course! I drew this because I got a little taste of fall this past week and now I’m ready for it to be here. Enjoy!
