White Doodle Pumpkin

Hi everyone! Here is a piece that I drew quite a while a go, but was waiting until closer to Thanksgiving to post it. I felt it would just fit into this week perfectly. I can’t believe there are only a couple days until Thanksgiving. I feel like November has just flown by. I can’t wait until next year so hopefully we can be more social during the holidays. I hope everyone has a socially distanced, safe and happy Thanksgiving this year. I drew this digitally using Procreate. I played around with one of the watercolor brushes and thought it would be cool to see white on a plaid background. I really like the end result. I am hoping to have this in my shops soon!

Autumn Leaf Doodle

Hey everyone! Here is a quick little doodle that I created over the past weekend. You can definitely tell that I have leaves on the brain! It has felt like a never ending battle these past few weeks of picking up leaves. This is weekend #3 of cleaning up our yard. I’m hoping it will be the last since most of the trees around us are pretty bare now. I love fall, but this is probably one of my least favorite things to do. Anyone feel the same way? I’m sure I’m not the only one. Other than that, I feel this doodle totally captures the mood and colors of fall. I just put this doodle leaf pattern on my shops on prints and products.

Navy Leaf Kaleidoscope

Hey all! Fall is in full swing here in KC. We spent a good portion of our weekend enjoying how nice it is and raking up all of the leaves. The temps have been abnormally high in the 70’s but that is not stopping all the trees from dumping their leaves on our lawn. The boys had a lot of fun raking the leaves into piles and jumping in them. Izzy our dog even had fun with the leaf piles. This is a really cool leaf kaleidoscope pattern that I created recently. What started out as a random doodle turned into a really cool pattern. I am really enjoying this color combination and how it screams fall. I just put this up in my Society6 and Redbubble shops on prints and products. Enjoy!

Happy Halloweenie

Hey everyone! I can’t believe Halloween is just a couple of days away. October has flown by so fast! Has it felt that way for anyone else? I saw on my Facebook page a couple of weeks ago the cutest Halloween yard inflatable that featured a cute dachschund and knew that I wanted to create a cute illustration featuring one too. I loved the play on words that they used for “Happy Halloweenie”. So I incorporated that into the illustration. I used Procreate to draw out this cute guy and for the lettering. I really love how it turned out!

It’s All A Bunch Of Hocus Pocus

Hi all! There is only 2 weeks until Halloween! We watched my favorite Halloween movie last night, Hocus Pocus. I know that it has blown up in popularity recently, but I have loved it since it first came out. It’s very nostalgic to me! I decided to make a lettering piece out of one of the quotes from the movie. It’s possibly one of my favorite scenes from the movie. I created this piece digitally using Procreate. I wanted the quote to be front and center by keeping the the other graphics pretty simple. I just added this piece to my Society6 and Redbubble shops on prints and products. Enjoy!

Fall Pumpkin and Flowers

Hey everyone! The fall weather is in full force this week in Kansas City. And I’m loving it! Here is a drawing that I worked on this past week using Procreate. I discovered a couple of new watercolor brushes and decided to play around with them. To be honest, I haven’t really liked any of the watercolor brushes on the program. I just don’t like the effect that make and doesn’t appear realistic. These new brushes are definitely closer to the effect that I’m wanting to achieve. I was really pleased with the overall look! I will definitely incorporate them into my future drawings. Enjoy!

Hello Autumn

Guess what everyone…..It’s officially Fall! No more wishing it was finally here. I’m ready to eat and drink everything apple and pumpkin related. Plus, I’m anxiously awaiting some cooler temps so I can wear my boots and sweaters. This weekend it will be in the 80’s in KC. Hopefully after this weekend we can finally get rid of these summer temps and just enjoy some cool, crisp weather. I think my new pup Izzy is looking forward to the cooler temps also. She is always hot and likes to lay on our air conditioner vents. So we are looking forward to some fall walks. Here is a piece that I drew digitally in my Procreate app. I wanted to make a silhouette of a leaf to house the phrase “Hello Autumn”. Plus, I included some doodles of fall related items to fill in the voids. I love the end result! Enjoy!

Ready For Fall

Hey everyone! The weather is finally cooling off in Kansas City and it feels amazing. It is so much more enjoyable to be outside. And since we got Izzy, we have been outside a lot more. Fall is my favorite season and I look forward to it every year. I can’t wait to wear sweaters with boots, pick out pumpkins, drink warm apple cider and light fall scented candles. I’m not exaggerating, it truly is my favorite.  I drew this digitally the minute there was just a slight crisp in the air. The font is my own handwriting and I love how it turned out. I’m so ready for fall….is anyone else?

Izzy Pup

Hey everyone! Sorry I haven’t posted anything new in the past couple of weeks. We recently had a new addition to our family. We adopted a cute little pup. Her name is Izzy and she is a bordoodle (border collie/poodle mix). She is so cute and fluffy. We love her to pieces! Having a new puppy is just like having a newborn baby in the household. So it has been hard to get anything done and most of my time has been devoted to our new puppy. I did finally get to squeeze some time in while she was napping and create a portrait of her. I drew it digitally using Procreate and tried to capture her fluffy fur with some brushes. I can’t wait to keep creating new content and hopefully getting into routine with Izzy. Welcome to the Ruth Miller Creative family Izzy! Enjoy!

Green Field of Flowers

Hey everyone! It was a busy but fun weekend for my family. We have been painting trim in our house trying to eliminate all traces of the eighties from my house…lol! It’s been a project! Slowly bur surely we are getting it tackled. We also had a small birthday party for my niece at our house. She is turning 11 and starting middle school this year, so we wanted to make sure she had a fun celebration with swimming, pizza, cake and ice cream. It was a good change of pace with everything that is going on. It felt great celebrating something! This drawing was created this past week between projects. I think I have flowers on the brain. I have definitely been drawing inspiration from them on my past couple of pieces. I drew these whimsical flowers digitally using Procreate. I also used green as the primary color because it’s my all time favorite color. It soothes my soul! I hope you all enjoy this little bit of whimsy!
