A Beach Day

That Smell Of The Beach

Earlier this week I had gone into a store and found a perfume called “Beach” by Bobbi Brown.  I had no idea how it smelled and wondered what did she think the beach smelled like.  So as any curious person, I sprayed it on.  I was so pleasantly surprised in the sent.  It smelled exactly like what I remembered.  It took me back to the time that I took the kids to the beach.  Thoughts of preparing the cooler the night before with cantaloupe and watermelon along with sandwiches, sleeping in our suits so we could get up at that crack of dawn and head out to Coquina Beach Bradenten Fla.

As any good artist would do, I started to draw.

Spring has Sprung

I am so excited for spring.  The time for growth and new beginnings.  It is also the time for pruning those things that are no longer useful.  It’s time to plant new ideas and new concepts and practice new ways in doing things.  Its time to embrace the learning class of life, and sign up for an exciting corse.

To celebrate new starts I have put together a great little pattern.  Blue Pansies, that have been watercolored, and then placed in a pattern.  This year I plan on doing a lot more flowers, but giving them my own spin.

First things first

As you all know I use Society6 and RedBubble to give my creations the ability to be made available to my friends, family and fans.  So here they are.  I have picked out just a few to show you, but you can click on to the link provided and it will take you  to what ever store you prefer for more products.

As of lately

Zazzle has also come up in the world.  They are now producing leggings with all over print. I also do a good deal of selling with fabrics from them. Like I have said in a previous post I am cleaning out the store over there to make it easier for my clients to shop.  This is my leggings collections, I will add to it as I go along.  You will have to forgive me I am working alone in the studio.  Days of organizing have to be carefully fitted between days of painting.

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

I am hoping to do a project a bit later with one of my favorite people, my daughter, who has designed some designed some diapers.  This would be so exciting for me to design some fantastic patterns for her to work with.  She is so talented.  Fingers crossed.
