Kicking it old school.. what do you think? Should I do more handpainted patterns?


Printsource August is over!
I’m so very happy I attended this show! I was a little nervous (what else is new) since August is usually slower than May and January, but I decided to go for it. I’m so glad I did! I made some great new connections, sold a bunch of artwork, and got into some new product categories! Kids undies, fleece fabric, and pool toys! Can’t wait to see the new products!

I also can’t wait to go back in January. See you this winter NYC! But first, let me enjoy the rest of this summer and even some fall.

Want to see how I do my vector doodles?
First I start with a doodle, then I re-draw the doodle with my fancy art pens, then I scan the image and auto trace the image in Illustrator. After I clean it up and add some color it still looks hand drawn, but it’s vector! Neat, huh?
Okay.. the art pens aren’t that fancy.



Ahh! June.. the best time to get outside, enjoy the sun, and work on some Holiday prints!
