For your viewing pleasure today, I am posting my latest editorial illustration. I’m really excited about this piece for a few reasons. I’m quite pleased at how it turned out and I also feel that it marks a discovery for me as far as what works best for my work and concepts. That discovery is thanks to some fellow illustrators over at The Mighty Pencil (if you’re not familiar with this illustration collective, I suggest you check us out).
The piece was created for an article about a woman who leaves the city for a much more affordable small town. It all looked great on paper, but when it came to actually living in a small town where she had no real roots the town just didn’t cut it. After an isolating winter, she made the decision to move back to a large city.
The painting is available as a print here and I have also made cards (and other products) available here – seems like the perfect holiday/winter greeting, yes?
Many of you are probably already familiar with my recipe comics (if not, you can read them here). They are so fun to create that I thought I would do a couple of holiday recipes. I have now turned those holiday recipes into 2 accordion-fold greeting cards available for sale here.
These cards are a great way to go that little extra step to show someone how much you care. Why’s that? Because these cards contain the ingredients and instructions for two full recipes, meaning the recipient can keep them and use them forever! They are delicious recipes that I have used at home on several occasions and I’m sure you will like them too.
The cards fold down to 4.5″ x 5.5″ and come with an A6 size envelope and shouldn’t need more than a standard stamp to mail. They are available now on Etsy – buy them in sets to get a bit of a discount on the price as well.
This piece was created for someone who wanted to announce to their clients that their business had moved to Texas. I’ve been playing with a new style of working and I’m thrilled with how this came out. Be prepared to see more work like this in the future!
Today I was informed that my new, custom, standing desk is complete. It’s in my hometown in Nebraska so I won’t be able to pick it up for a couple of weeks, but if I get a photo of it in advance I’ll share. I’m going to be working with the carpenter to either offer the desk for sale through him and/or offer a PDF how-to guide to building your own. And I’ll be sure to post a review once I’ve worked with it for a little while.
Happy Holidays everyone!
