It's the perfect time of year to bust out a few patterns from the awesomely adorable Creepy Cute crochet book!!
I am certainly enjoying the simplicity of these ghouls and goblins! It makes it so you have to be really intentional with the details added to the two basic body shapes. It is a great way to work quickly. I can bust out many Amigurumi in a short time and have them be easily recognized!
Being able to crack open a pattern book every once and a while, is certainly inspiring!

Pumpkins! Which one is the critter pumpkin? ;-p
I wanted to start crocheting up some new Halloween patterns to be sent out with my October mailer.
I've had the little ceramic pumpkins since I was a child, so I used them as inspiration to come up with this little pumpkin critter!

I decided to take a crafty little break to some Zombie Felties! The patterns are from this super fun book that I just had to crack open for the season.
One is just a regular zombie & his friend is a pumpkin zombie! The sequins are his brains spilling out!
Creepy, but so adorable!

My newest illustration to be officially added to my portfolio! Yay:-D
I did this illustration as an exercise for the last SCBWI conference I attended. A few of us had the opportunity to illustrate a scene from a selected manuscript and then have it critiqued in front of the conference by Patrick Collins with Publishing house- Harper Collins.
I was on the fence about keeping this illustration, but after it was well received, I decided to keep it!

Throwback to some old Spirited Away drawings I drew on one of my super old notebooks from high school! I love seeing what inspired me back in the day & what continues to inspire me now.
For as long as I can remember creating has been the most important part of my life. It is a passion that has continued to grow everyday and I could not imagine doing anything different! <3

Continuing on with my Princess doodles-so here's a sweet little Snow White for everyone!
For this doodle, I used a watercolor paper instead of my gessoed illustration board & then went back in with my prismas-I love the colors!

Felty Magnet Critters! What a sweet little grouping of animals to brighten everyone's day-more to come!
I have just recently received the confirmation that Ria Art World will have a table at APE in October here in SF! So I have been sketching up some new felty critter ideas!
Here are a few finished guys so far, along with a few oldies but goodies:)

Bam! Just had to draw Jake & Finn. Little Adventure Time Tuesday please!:)
Also, I am becoming more and more satisfied with how my digital painting is turning out these days. Yay! I think it has been helpful to practice painting some characters that I already have established associations with too.

Cool Zebra drawing & friend ;-p
Just decided to experiment with watercolor and some colored pencils here.
I found this adorable Peruvian finger puppet at a Signature Imports type store. I bought a few of his buddies too:)
He's so cute, I just had to draw a little cool-guy zebra inspired doodle.
