Happy August, everyone! Another blog post, another promise to blog more... Hey, I do what I can since becoming a Mom three months ago. Since my last entry I have finished three paintings. Two more for my "Alphabet Animals" series, (which is currently stalled at "D") and one new Adventure Time painting.
|D is for deer in a dress with a doll.|
|C is for cat in a cape. (Based on our cat Elvis).|

Hopefully by my next entry, I'll have E-G finished. All of the letters are planned out, with some rough sketches. An elephant is up to the plate, with a fox and giraffe are on deck! I will be listing C and D in the shop sometime in the next week or so.
My Adventure Time mania continues! Here's the progression of a painting featuring Lady Rainicorn and Princess Bubblegum chilling with Peppermint Butler and Science the candy corn rat.

You can see the entire piece here, in print form!
|Next up, Lumpy Space Princess!|
Full-time Mommyhood restricts my painting and sketching to nap times, and so I have been progressing slowly the last few months. (Not that I'm complaining, I absolutely LOVE being a Mom :) ) Last week Ryan offered to care for Luke solo for one hour a day and one evening a week, so I could have a little more certainty to my work time. Ryan already helps to take care of Luke throughout the afternoons and evenings, but some concentrated art time is really exciting! I am hoping to get back into the swing of things (though, mostly likely still a slower swing) soon with some new illustrations for the shop.
And I have some exciting news to share. My friend Amy and I are putting together a horror anthology with some of our writer/illustrator friends! I've got two months to create some artwork for the project, so expect some spooky painting posts just in time for Halloween!
