Coloring Like an Adult

Has everyone been following the recent trend of adult coloring books. One of the most popular is The Enchanted Forest, Johanna Basford. Another popular artist is Dawn Nicole or another artist Selina Fenech.

Its incredibly relaxing for most people. Recently I tried my hand at making a custom coloring page. It’s like typography meets zen tangles. I really liked how it turned out. I am currently working on 3 more.

I recently worked on a rather unique t-shirt graphic for a friend. While talking about it on the phone I came up with a sketch which later morphed into the t-shirt graphic. They were looking for a t-shirt design that they could wear at running/obstacle events. I can’t wait to see how it looks on a t-shirt. What do you think?

Monsters, Monsters, Beware…

Monster Hat Crochet Pattern

I tested this monster hat for Knot By Gran’ma. My littlest loves trying to steal this hat from her brother all the time… they are my real monsters. It was my first time combining both thread and yarn into a crochet piece. You can find the pattern here:

Glamour Shots – Sparklies & Hooking

Not too long ago I tested for the amazing designer Kris Moore, for the pattern “Ribbed Headband” and the pattern “Ribbed Boot cuff”. They turned out beautifully and the pattern was very well written. I used Simply Soft Caron yarn, taupe and found the embellishment at Walmart in the craft section. You can find the patterns here:

Heart Break Charlie, Strong Bond of Family

Not too long ago I had a blonde haired blue eyed baby boy. We went to a play group at the local hospital here. We met some wonderful moms and dads… making many friends for life. One of these moms, Sarah, let me be part of a super secret Christmas present for her husband. It was a portrait of their fur baby Charlie, a beautiful lab and so sweet too. I finished the portrait and was ready to ship it to her as they had moved, miss them terribly. I was heart broken and sad to find out Charlie wasn’t doing very well at all. As requested I held on to the portrait for an additional week while the family said their good byes. Thank you for letting me create this portrait for you. Media gray paper and charcoal pencil

I submitted this to Illustration Friday for the category of “Strong”. I believe there are strong bonds of family between friends and fur babies.

Remembering Cole, RIP

My dear friend had to say good bye to her fur baby Cole yesterday. My heart aches for her, he was such a sweet lovable dog. Thankful I was able to create this beautiful portrait.
