The Mushroom Gatherers


Something from earlier in the spring, back when green, growing things seemed as farfetched as mushroom gathering maidens.

Cream + Sugar

 

It's Friday (insert: flinging of imaginary confetti)! Hope your week was swell. I made this pattern eons ago (for a Spoonflower challenge) and forgot about it until I was rifling through files this afternoon. Speaking of which, some French Press sounds splendid about now...

Happy weekends!

Alfred

 

The comic project my sister, Emily, and I have been collaborating on is ready to go. We're excited to share Alfred -- we've had a blast working on this and hope you like it, too. You can read weekly updates every Monday over here.

The back story? Over the holidays a coffeeshop conversation ended up evolving into Emily's idea for a comic. Many months, several late nights and a couple weekends later, we're ready to go. Alfred is equal parts sci-fi, fantasy and mystery, with a healthy dose of Maine thrown in. And let's not forget, lots and lots of salt water.

Enjoy!

Gathering


It's Friday -- jazz hands!

And I've just finished restocking my Etsy shop -- there's a few new prints over there, including this woodland maid.

Happy Weekend!

The Lonestar State



I made a whirlwind trip down to Texas the other weekend to visit family. It was the perfect antidote to the most brutal winter I can remember.

  
Needless to say, my camera is filled to capacity with pictures of flora, fauna, nieces and nephew. And all I want to draw are succulents and cacti (ergo, the pattern at the top of this post).

Thanks for the creative shot in the arm, Lone Star State. I owe you one.

Blooming

I'm working on final book art right now, so life largely consists of paint, pencils, pixels, coffee and copious amounts of podcasts. But I did manage to carve out a bit of time yesterday to paint a pot of flowers. And in light of that, I'm inclined to say that all's right with the world.

Scribble, scribble, scratch

 

That moment when you realize your top knot needs its own postal code...

And, two bits of nice news:

*If you're in the Netherlands, I have a bit of lettering in this issue of Flow Weekly.

*Some of my embroidered postcards are in the newest issue of Hoop-la magazine.
