I am super excited to now be offering prints in the shop now!  I have really enjoyed getting some new work in the shop and I would love to share a little of the excitement with you guys. about a GIVEAWAY!!

The Lookout Fox, which is an original pen illustration that has been digitally colored, is my newest print to add to the shop. I have to admit it: I adore this print (an I hope you do, too)!  As some of you may know already, I really love foxes and am always so excited when I catch a glimpse of one scampering into the woods.  The last sighting I had of a fox was of an adult fox running across the road from our woods to the woods across the road.  The fox took a brief second to look back at me before disappearing into the brush.  It was a "wow moment" for me, to say the least.

Meet Juniper

A couple of weeks ago, a stray cat showed up on our doorstep, skinny, meowing, and in need of a little love.  We fed her, gave her a comfy little place to sleep, and once we knew she was here to stay, gave her a name.  Juniper.  She's a sweet little cat, always ready for a little love, and such a perfect little model for photos and illustrations.  I mean, look at this face!

I couldn't just let a face like that go unillustrated, right? So I sketched out a drawing, digitized it and added some color, and now she's prowling around the shop now! I think she's pretty darn cute!
