Festive Illustrations






I've been waiting to do these illustrations for months, and I'm so excited to share them here! I started them as soon as December began. It's my favorite time of year, and the color palate is so much fun. I get to add bright reds and metallic shades to my usual preferred jewel tones. I've also used this as an excuse to go overboard with gold paint, and I don't know if I can be stopped. This might roll over into 2016. I've loved making these illustrations, and they're all hanging above my little Christmas tree until the holidays are over. You can kind of see that here. My small space definitely feels more festive, and I'm pretty pleased with it.

I also wanted to ask about prints. I've been considering opening a shop on Etsy next year, but I don't want to invest if it's not worth it. Would anyone be interested in prints? Not necessarily these specific prints, since the season would be over, but other prints? I'm curious. Let me know!


I've been styling pieces with Yoins on Polyvore. You can check that out here.

  6. wow, these are so nice. what kind of gold paint do you use? is it a metallic watercolor? so curious. also, i used to sell one of a kind art on Etsy and in stores/galleries, but i've never tried my hand at making prints. the printer/output i wanted was never up to par with the quality i felt i expressed in a one-of-a-kind piece. this was a few years ago though, and i haven't investigated home printing since. recently i've been toying with the idea of re-visiting selling my art. maybe home printing's come a long way :P haha, i would be curious to see what you decide, i definitely think your work is marketable and relatable! maybe a mix of original art and prints? that's probably the direction i would pursue myself. x

    1. It's a gold acrylic, just because that's what I've got. Gold ink is really fun too. I think a mix is good. I've been working on other things, but photographing canvas stresses me out. I like the idea of prints, but I like the idea of one-of-a-kind pieces as well. I'd love to see your art though, is it still online anywhere?
