I'm still not that great at actually painting something, but today I went a little crazy and did some abstract paintings with them and then drew on top of them with ink! I saw some other artists paint like this, and thought why not try it out! So I did some of my cupcakes illustrations, and I think they turned out rather neat!

You can purchase the originals online at my shop! Or you can purchase a print of them, once I get those printed, which will be in a few days. :)

Let me know what you think!

Birthday cards & Notepads


Yesterday I got together with a friend and had a painting day. I wanted to try out watercolors again (last time I touched them was about 5 years ago) and I made a few birthday cards! I think they turned out relatively cute. :3

I also tired out some acrylic painting on canvas, but I didn't like how they turned out, so I will have to try again! Practice makes perfect.

I'm glad I'm starting to work on things like this again. Painting is calming, and each piece turns out to be one of a kind! :) I plan on doing a lot more paintings like this and hopefully they will get bigger and better!

Onto other things... For awhile now, I've been wanting to make notepads with my illustrations on them. But every time I try to look for printing shops that offer that kind of service, I can't find a thing! Nothing! Unless I want to pay an arm and a leg for it, and for something that I don't even really want! Places are charging 5-10 per notepad, and all you get on it is a 2 color print of your company logo! BOOO! I want to get a full color illustration on mine! Then it hit me! I can do this sort of thing at my work place! So today I printed off some pages and put together my own little notebook.

 As you can see, it turned out super cute! :3 So I did up the math to see how much it would cost me to print off a few of them just for starters... and I didn't like how it was adding up. If I printed them at my work place I would have to charge about $8-10 per notebook. And I don't think anyone would pay that much for them. :C

So my search continues to find a place where I can get notepads like the one above (or a notepad that has glue binding) printed off at a reasonable price. If you know of a place link me! :3

I finally revamped my blog!

As you can see, it looks a million times better. Well at least I like to think so! I decided to use my vector doughnuts as the background and then just changed my logos colors to match the doughnuts. I think this design really reflects who I am. And if you know me, you'll probably think the sane. :)

Now that I am done of this, I need to update my online store. I already changed the look of it, so now it matches the blog. I am currently making an inventory of all of my prints and other things I plan on selling on it. So far all I have listed are the bookmarks and buttons. Once I figure out what prints I'm going to sell, I'll let you all know when they go up!

In other news, I am going to try to start painting with acrylics and watercolors! And if I feel like it's something that I'll continue, I'll be selling some pieces on here! I already have a few ideas sketched out that I think will make great paintings.

Also on the go, I am design my friends logo/header for her blog. I already had somethings sketched out, but when I put it on the computer and try working with it, it just doesn't look right or professional. So I think I will have to sketch out a few more things and hope that they work.

And I think that is it! OH!

I have some ideas what I am going to do for Hal-Con! But I'm not telling anyone about it! :P I just know that nerds of all sorts will (hopefully) love it! :D
