Hibiscus Invitation

I've been doing some invitations this month and getting to work with my favorite Florida flower <3. My neighbor has a huge hibiscus tree, that just ties the whole neighborhood together, absolutely beautiful. A black and white version of this background is available in my etsy shop, too!

Inspiration: Vintage Illustrations

I've been working on some more floral motifs this week, so instead of posting art...there will be more art soon...I fell into a black hole of the British Library's flickr stream. It is a treasure trove of beautifully crafted illustration.

BIG, BLUE Whale

I'm working on a letter book, geared to 1st graders! For some reason, I started with the letter B...? Don't ask me why, I think it is so hot, I am just thinking of cool blues and ocean waves. <3

Unusual Suspects

I've been having really vivid dreams of late, so I thought I'd do a post of all dreams turned illustrations. Maybe I will revisit some of them for prints, they turned out kind of moody and fun.

 

Blue Telescope

I'm daydreaming about my dream goldfish these days, so I've been drawing so many :D. I put up a speedpaint of this little gem. If I were to ever breed goldfish, I would try to shoot for a line of purple/blue telescopes or pearlscales. I just love the color varieties!

Sea Turtle Nesting Season is Here!

Sea turtle nesting season is here in Florida! So at work I've been working on some little turtle identification illustrations, to help people learn to keep our beaches safe for the ladies as they lay their eggs and the little babies as they make their way to the ocean. The loggerhead, green, and leatherback sea turtles are most seen on our Florida beaches and are endangered or threatened.
