Goats on the green

Another design challenge on Spoonflower. I can't stop making these patterns! This challenge stipulated a specific color palette, which was interesting, and of course, goats! I continue with the theme of animals playing ball. By the way, I'm excited that my last entry for the baseball theme managed to squeeze into the top ten. Yay!

This week's Spoonflower challenge: baseball

I had fun playing around with these iconic images. I've only been to one major league ball game in my life (Yankees when I lived in NYC) but I do love old baseball movies and playing for fun! You can see all the designs here.

Yummy fat

Here are a couple of images I did for Vegetarian Times for an article on fat myths. I did a couple of different versions and they went with the cake.

What's in your bag?

Yet another pattern for yet another Spoonflower contest. I decided to leave out all reference to lint because, well, it's just gross.

Hey, what's in your bag?

Winter and summer

I'm rather fond of pink and coral lately. This week I continue working on Holiday 2015 stuff as well as continuing my pattern design quest, so what we get is snowdrifts and lemonade.

Christmas in June

I mentioned earlier that I was going to try to get some Christmas cards done early this year, and so here are a couple more. The snowball fight is adapted from an earlier sketchbook, found here. Happy Holidays! Stay tuned for more...

Floor of the forest

Here's my latest spoonflower contest design. And the theme is... hedgehogs! I once wished to have a pet hedgehog, but found it was against the law in my locale, alas!

Wash, rinse, repeat

Hairstyles of the 40s, the finished painting. I'm nothing if not an obsessor over the minutiae of life...

Books I read in New York pt.2

Meanwhile, back at the ranch, I finally get around to making a larger illustration out of this little piece I did in my journal last year celebrating the joys of reading.
