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!

Halloween Pumpkin Bouquet

Hey everyone! I can’t believe Halloween is approaching so quickly. It feels like the October just started. To get into the spirit, I sketched out this cute drawing one morning. I decided to use watercolor to paint it in, since that is my favorite painting medium. I really like the depth of colors it gives yet always gives a unique feel to every painting. Let the countdown begin! 3 weeks until Halloween!

Happy Pumpkin Spice Season

Hey everyone! What is the first thing you think of when fall arrives? Pumpkin spice everything, of course! That is one of the things that I look forward during Fall. I’m not a huge coffee drinker but I do love pumpkin flavored desserts. Every Thanksgiving, I make a pumpkin spice cake with cream cheese frosting. I look forward to it every year! Even my brother, the pastry chef, requests me to make it. So I thought I would celebrate this wonderful flavor season with a drawing. I wanted to keep it pretty simple and classic. I think this would look great as wall art and home decor. I will definitely have to add it to my shops!

Free Spirit

Happy Wednesday! I have made it mid week of my sons first week back to all in school. Let me tell you it has been the best week of my life since March. I’m happy, my boys are happy to be back and it feels great to have an inch of normalcy back. I have been able to get so much done in the past couple of days. I saw a local boutique by me post an image of the words “Free Spirit” and knew I wanted to make a drawing out of it. I have definitely felt like a spirit the past couple of days and finally feel like me again. Free spirit is hand lettered and I drew the flowered background in Procreate. I wanted the flowers to feel Mum inspired since they are every where during the fall. I’m not going to lie, I buy quite a few pots of them every fall. I love them! I just uploaded this to my Society6 and Redbubble shops on prints and cool products.

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!
