So I was taking a walk a few months ago with my sister and I fell off the curb.... yes... fell into the middle of the street. In the process I broke a very small bone at the base of my thumb and really messed up my knee. The Thumb on my drawing had has been out of commission until about a week ago. I have been drawing very large and intricate doodles to exercise and get my groove back. The repetitive action is like weight lifting for my thumb.I can finally draw a straight line again! I should be back producing clip art next week. Just in time for Summer! Sorry guys.... I have lots penciled and some inked so they should come out pretty fast. I have a plant growth set, a new set of frames and more.
Another set just for fun.... Garden Bunnies. I've included paws so you can layer them over a tool or flowers to make it look more realistic! Only 20 of these available at the Blog price... but you can find them on Etsy and in my TPT shop.
These are not in response to your ideas yet! Just some sets I finished, starting with the merkids... I decided to go back and take a look at some of my older clipart and see what kind of improvements I could make... This drawing style is a little different for me but I sort of like the cleaner lines I also added boys!
NOTE: There is only 20 copies of each set available!!! I am limiting quantities so that I can make room on the blog for new sets more often.
Its time for a month long sale and giveaway! First... on Etsy only use the code marchmadness15 at check out for 50% off!!! Also give me your themes for the remainder of the year....how are you decorating, what are you teaching, reading etc... I am looking for some broad ideas.... Like this:
I am doing a science unit on frogs so I am decorating with lily pads and frogs
We are reading poetry and we are going to have rhyming games.
We are studying nocturnal creatures.
I will hopefully be able to get a bunch done in the next thirty days... as before, first with the theme that sparks an idea for me gets the clip art set! And I will work hard to get at least 5 sets done.
I will announce winners here ONLY and you need to email me for your set... I cant see any way to contact you from my blog, am I blind?
A new sale at TPT plus a new freebee in my TPT store! All this week grab super hero clips for free and on the 25th get 20% off everything in my shop! CLick the link below and use the promo code Heroes!
This is a little weird but I was doodleing away and came up with these feathers... Each feather is done in 5 colors plus one full color. This set is ONLY in PNG format this time....no Jpegs available. SO they have a 'clear' backgrounds but will not work with Microsoft Word... I was imagining them as dividers for an invitation???
My life changed so much last year, Im finally getting back on track... Started a business with a partner who left after 6 weeks (because it was too hard!) yes... 6 weeks. That's why you haven't heard much from me over the last 8 months. I kept the business going, working very long hours and stretching myself to the limit... but its paying off. I have a successful little gift store in Monterey CA. called Marina Patina!!! I think I am finally to a point where I can start doing my art again... I have tons of half - done collections in my sketch book, pencil sketches of Halloween and Christmas characters that were never finished...some ideas from my blog followers... I just finished a set of page borders, sort of springy...I hope to finish more in the next few weeks...
