Postcard Series: Season’s Greetings

In between working on my weekly sketchbook pages of animal art illustrations, and trying to create something everyday, I’m also having fun practicing hand lettering combined with watercolor wreaths. I turned these watercolor postcard paintings into new notecards in my Etsy shop.

Week 26 Animal Art Series: Nature

In order to continue my mission to draw all the time and fill up more sketchbooks in 2016, I’m working on a new weekly theme to do daily drawings, while experimenting with watercolor. At the end of each week, it’s nice to have lots of new drawings and a full page illustration.

Week 26 in my animal art series features a hand-lettered saying “Nature is new every morning” and a bouquet of wildflowers and butterflies. I’m so excited about this page because it’s the last page in my sketchbook AND it marks the halfway point in my 2016 animal art series!

Can’t wait to turn this playful sketchbook page into fun new digital art! I think it will make a great are print or postcard. Happy drawing!

Hand-Lettered Friday: Be Brave

I’ve been practicing my hand-lettering more lately, traditionally and with my digital drawing tablet, so I hoping to share hand-lettered pages from my sketchbook and computer on Fridays.

The prompt for this page is my theme for 2015, to be brave, to be confident in making more work, sharing it and submitting it to licensing companies.

I’m happy to report this was the very last blank page in my watercolor sketchbook, which I started in 2012. It’s always a great feeling to fill up a sketchbook, another goal of mine in 2015 – to fill up more sketchbooks. I have already started a new sketchbook, which I will share next week.

Hope you enjoy a great weekend!
