oh…hey. it’s you!!!

trying out some new color and layering techniques with this little dude. he began life as a quick oil painting, but today he was reborn as a vector drawing in illustrator and then colored with photoshop. there’s something about wrinkled notebook paper that just satisfies my eyes.

"The lessons keep coming back until you learn from them…and they just get harder."

Spent a few hours scanning and archiving my flowerkids yesterday in hopes of planting dozens of them on the sides of coffee mugs and greeting cards this year.

This little guy teaches me to pay attention to all of my struggles, because if I keep stumbling over the same thing I have not learned the lesson yet.

Do you guys think he’ll be worthy of life on a coffee mug?

"Motivational Mums" Flowerkid mugs are now available onĀ my Etsy shop!

This is the first design of many to come. The next few days will be spent scanning and digitalizing all my little flowerkid doodles from sketchbooks over the years and thinking of cute insightful phrases to add to them so that they speak just the right message to whoever needs them.

Stay tuned for more Motivational Mums and other flowerkid products by me. I’ll need your help getting my flowerkids out there to the world!

Ch-check it outtttt.
