Just Stay Calm and Meditate On

Just finished these up and posted them in my stores at Society6 and Redbubble.  So hurry on over and check them out.  Lots of great quality products to choose from.

A little Tid Bit

Stewart was a product of my imagination.  He was a little rat that loved to meditate.  He always has a cup of tea and a kitchen full of food, a quiet place to sit and a pair of big ears to listen to all of your worries.   He is a loving and gifted rat.   He is one of Super Pigs buddies.

Thank you for dropping by, if you liked my work please comment below and follow me.

See you Soon

Spring Time Songs

I love the spring.  Stick around and you will hear, “I love the fall” or “I love the winter”.  But there is something about the spring time.  New growth.  The ground smells warm and ready to burst with color and life and blooms.  That is what inspired this little image.  That re-birth and celebration that happens every year at spring time.

Songs of spring

That is what this little watercolor is entitled.  These lambs are singing to their hearts content.  Welcoming in the spring time.  I have used Windsor and Newton watercolor on 40 lb cold pressed paper.  This image is available at my Society6 shop and RedBubble.

That Nasty Cat

Every once in a while our cats here at the house turn “Nasty”.  They get into things that they are not supposed to get into or hack up something that is not of this earth.  The general cat life, that exists in our house is what inspired me to do a series called “Nasty Cat”  It catches this little cat doing cat things.

In drawing this little guy in various situations, I also placed him in some patterns. If you look closely you can see his little cat grin.   These items are available in my stores at Society6 and Redbubble

Let’s Face Fear 

I have been working with the idea of letting our Super Pig Super Hero encounter some life events that some of us take for granted, and others have a real hard time with.   You know like going to doctors.  My biggest anxiety trigger is going to the optometrist.  Some how that little puff of air just terrifies me.  Another one was getting tested for breast cancer.  I was terrified.  I knew I had it. My circumstances at the time was that my husband also had diffuse B-Cell Lymphoma.  What are the chances.  Regardless, it was, and is what it is.  We both had to face our fear, and mortality, and submit to the process of a cure.  In all  this I found that fear can NEVER be in the drivers seat.  It can only be in the passenger seat.  It should not dictate what your choice is.  It is only there to provide caution.  I have also found heroes, and heroes that are now friends during all of this.   I have survived. I have learned that fear will close your eyes and heart and soul to everything that is good in life.  It will leave you parilized.

I am in a much better place and it all due to putting fear in its place.

super-pig-visits-the-optometrist-book

This lesson of putting fear in its place on a smaller scale,  is what my super hero Super Pig is going through.  Placing fear in the right place.  Learning,  it’s not a guiding force.  Our hero has to face up, and own up, to the fact that perhaps they may need glasses. Our Hero has to admit there might be a problem, and that perhaps their eyes may need a bit of help from the local eye doctor.  Of coarse our Super Hero’s friends rally around, and help in getting the appointments and being a support.  Our Super Hero starts to see that perhaps fear is bigger then the eye problem.  Soon, Super Pig is on their way to the optometrist, going to a place they have never been, in a  part of town that is unfamiliar, meeting people they have never met.  Scary? Yes.

What will happen to our Super Hero?  Will Super Pig have to wear glasses? Will this hinder Super Pig’s Super abilities?  Perhaps he will meet another Super Hero they never thought they would meet………

Tune in next time to find out what happens to our Super Hero.

Finding Major Tom

finding-major-tom-book

Here is my version of the way my little Super Pig’s book would look like.  The finding of Major Tom.  This was inspired by David Bowie’s death and life.  Super Pig and his friends have heard of the great Major Tom and have decided to embark on the adventure of all times.  To seek out Major Tom.  They have great adventures and perils.  But the all find Major Tom on a deserted moon.  It looks as if he has just fallen asleep.  The three friends kneel down and for a moment time stops, and they remember the gifts Major Tom gave them.  Even the stars and the moon weeps for Major Tom.

You can find these prints available at my store on Society6 or Red Bubble

Here is an Idea

Working With Mockups

sewing-with-super-pigI love children books.  I could spend hours in that department.  Just to look at all the brightly colored illustrations, well it just activates something in my creative mind.  The beauty and the beginning of imagination in someone.  That seed.  Its a powerful thing.  To know that you could put an idea or inspiration in a child’s mind.  In an adult mind for that matter.  It puts ideas in my mind.

super-pig-visits-the-optometrist-book

Here you will notice that I have taken two of my illustrations and put them in a mock up book format.  Just to give that idea, that spark.

So here are a few ideas on how to use my art to write a story or to use my style to illustrate a book.  Enjoy and Contact me if you are in need of art.  Check out my store listing on my about page. I will be talking more about how my art can be used in other creative outlets, such as sewing or paper products. Until next time Au Revoir

Special thanks to Mark at Covervault for the mockups
