Springing Into Something New

Happy Spring. I don’t know how it is in your neck of the woods but the days have been sunny and the temps in the 40s, spring is definitely in the air. This is a time for new beginnings and new adventures so I’m bringing in the season with something new to offer: downloadable mini prints, more commonly known as “printables”. Printables are digital reproductions of original art that you can purchase, download to your computer and print yourself on your home printer and then frame it or take it to a print shop and have it professionally printed, mounted and framed just the way you like.

This is a convenient way for me to offer more variety to my creative goods as well as give people more options to how the final overall look of the piece appears.

I’m offering a mini printable of “Polar Bears” (shown above) for free to anyone who signs up for my newsletter on my website (found here). It’s a mini print with a 5×7 image size specifically formatted to be printed on any 8.5×11 paper (A4 international paper) of your choosing but for best quality try white cardstock or matte white fine art paper.

I’m venturing into new territory here so I’m still working out the kinks but I plan on also offering printable 5×7 greeting cards based on my original artwork that you can keep for yourself or give to others for any occasion. So be sure to stay tuned to see what I cook up. In the meantime go sign up for my newsletter, enjoy your free mini print and have a wonderful Spring. 😀

Almost Forgot

I’ve been so busy working on new ideas and getting this little bitty finished that I forgot to do a progress update since my last post. As you can see I’m almost finished. Should be done with this lovely creature by the end of the week. 😉

Share The Earth Series

“Sea Turtle” (wip)

As promised, I’m now getting started on this adorable sea turtle as the first drawing for my climate change project which I’m calling “Share The Earth”. This will be a four piece art card series on animals whose habitat is being effected by climate change.

Lost In Peonies

Spring is just around the corner, so in celebration of the colorful bloom of the upcoming season, I added a splash of color to this piece. It just didn’t seem right to have a ladybug without its signature red hue. (Are male ladybugs still called ladybugs? 💁)

Anyhoo, thanks to you all who chimed in on helping me decide on the title for this. As you can see “Lost In Peonies” was the favorite, although “Death By Peonies” gave me a little chuckle everytime I thought about it.

Next up on my drawing board is a four piece series on animals effected by climate change. For now the snow leopard and green sea turtle are for sure on my list but I’m still debating on the other two. Maybe I’ll do the African elephant and cheetah or maybe the polar bear and panda. I’m also planning on offering a new product: printable art prints. These would be digital versions of my original works that you can purchase, download and print off yourself at home or take the file to a local printer and have them do it for you. I’m still working out the logistics but I’m really hoping this is something I can make happen without too much fuss. 😌

Conflicted

I’ve decided that I’m going to go ahead and do a series on animals effected by climate change. So far I have a partial list of creatures I’m looking into doing and researching others. In the meantime I’m halfway finished with my current art card but I’m a little conflicted, should I call it “Lost In Peonies” or “Death By Peonies”? 💁
