A hybrid bit of experimentation today. Physically block printed spider, imported in and colored/touched up digitally. I'm having fun with this!
Been working on learning how to do digital art! (It definitely involved sitting down with my oldest child and having them help me figure out how the heck layers actually worked!)
Unicorn coloring page ready to be downloaded and printed for all patrons at the $1/month Sensational Scribbler level!
8.5 by 5.5 inch (half page) calendar pages for download! These fit the largest books I make - cut on the dotted line and use a page from your book to determine where to punch holes!
Happy happy New YEar! If you are getting a start organization for the new year, here is a download for calendar pages that will fit in my 4x6 blank books! Cut along the dotted lines, and use a current page to determine where to punch holes.
I've been doing some experimenting with some different ways to make books this summer. Here's one I just completed!
Sometimes, I have people tell me, "Oh I could never do anything like that!" or "I just don't have any artistic ability like you do!" or just "Oh, I'm just not creative." Well, here's the secret. Twenty years ago? Ten years ago? I would probably not believe I could eventually make the work that I make now. We all start somewhere, and guess what? With time and practice, we can all get better at what we do, and learn how to do something new. From left to right, the first turtle printing block I ever carved, and on the right the printing block of Aggie the Tortoise I carved this summer. Give yourself permission to make things that are ugly and awkward, but if you want to make something? GO FOR IT!
Finally here! A new online shop! I will be adding new items over the next several weeks! Things like this Rhinoceros Beetle Box, and more!
