I have been having fun with several new projects lately. I do love how my job takes me to different creative places and mindsets. When someone asks for a commissioned piece, it is always fun to hear how they would like their loved one or relationship portrayed. Now, I am obviously not who people come to for a portrait of their spouse painted in Victorian style…but if your boo is the peas to your carrots, I’m your girl.
It is also interesting to see how people bring childhood memories and feelings to the children’s books that they write. Evoking a warm memory or memorializing a cherished family member through their words and my illustration is very rewarding. I always loved a book to which I could relate, and I hope that I am helping create those for new generations.
I have not had as much time as I’d like to be adding to my own series of works, but I was happy to release a new food pun this week. If you know me, you know that I love an avocado and all the yummy ways to consume one (I’m looking at you, guacamole), and I love cute images of love. These avocado sweethearts were the result of these loves.
Well…back to the drawing board (literally)…stay tuned for more doodles!
