Earlier this summer I finished the above tattoo design, and just couldn’t leave it. Being a book lover myself, I love an opportunity to create bookish designs. So I tweaked it a bit to create this, which you can grab as an art print in my Etsy shop (and soon a sticker!)
It made me reflect on my other book-y drawing. For instance, this one below was my first and still one of my best-selling designs. I remember drawing it in my sketchbook at a coffee shop about 5 years ago. It's still my bud.
And this next I created in Procreate last winter. I remember working on this when there was snow on the ground (which is rare here in Portland, Oregon) and sitting with Ransom on the couch, watching Dino Dana.
I’m surprised I don’t yet have a book pattern. Bookish wrapping paper sounds like a lovely idea.
Here’s some fun book wrapping paper I found on Society6 . . .
Have you read any good books lately?
A place to share the process. A space to be honest about the triumphs and trials of my daily life as an artist and mama. Writing motivates and refreshes me.
