In my last post, I shared about my latest design, and today I thought I'd reach back a few years and share about an older design. I don't love all my older stuff, but this one I still find charming.
According to Facebook, I drew this in my sketchbook on October 11, 2016. That's 7 days before Ransom was born! Back then I was only drawing with pen and paper, now I mostly use my iPad.
I was inspired to draw this because I was listening to one of my favorite podcasts, Stuff You Should Know, and the episode that day was about polar bears. I apparently found it super interesting and inspiring.
A few years later I turned this thoughtful polar bear into a coloring sheet.
And to close, here's a picture of the cutest little chef you ever did see, helping me me make some pizza last Friday.
The is my first post of the year so I gotta say it -- happy new year!
My first new design of 2021 is this cutie pie squirrel for Valentine's Day.
I created this from a sketch I did a few years ago. Here's a look at the original.
Then I of course had to make it into a repeating pattern. I think it turned out pretty cute.
I think I'll make one or two more patterns in this same series as well, using the same color scheme and feel. I started one this morning while Ransom was coloring.
In my Etsy shop, I will soon have a Squirrel Valentine's Day card available, so stay tuned for that! I also think the design would look nice in a nursery.
(I've been a little addicted to finding fun mockups lately. I got that cute bassinet one from Rocket Mockups on Etsy.)
Bring it on 2021.
