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!
I did a few illustrations with crystals in college, and now I'm coming back to them ;)
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.
I'm so late on MerMAY, but once you start doodling lil merms, you just can't stop <3 <3 <3
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
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.
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!

Dreaming of new fishey
A dangerous pest, but a neat looking little bug :D >:O Causes horrible deformities in oranges...
Kari came to me looking for a tattoo design that incorporated the rolling slopes of mountains and the energy of a dancer.
Fresh oranges straight from the sunshine state <3
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.

When I get up for a glass of water in the middle of the night, I'm met with these eyes...then darkness...
I've been working with gradient meshes lately AND my Narcissus bloomed <3 So of course...I had to...
Whipping up some little sea babies for a poster.
I've been having a lot of fun working with floral motifs for a fabric pattern project.
