I’m so excited that October is finally here! Fall is my favorite season, hands down! To celebrate I created a little wallpaper download so your computer can enjoy this crisp air even when it’s stuck inside. Download the 1280×800 version or the extra large 1920×1200 version. Happy Fall!
I’ve been trying to get back into the habit of drawing. I tend to spend too much time in front of the computer and not enough time with a peice of paper and a pencil. So I have started keeping a little stack of blank notecards next to my keyboard and when something pop’s into my head and I have a few minutes, I’ve been drawing my little ideas. So I wanted to share the first 4 in a series of frozen treats. I’m planning on making these little guys into cards and put them up in my etsy shop very soon. Let me know what you think.
I have been working on this idea for a while and thanks to the good folks over at ponoko, I have some great new products in the shop. These wood coasters are laser cut form Color Rimu wood, with an engraved frame, and a cut out silhouette. I hand drew the silhouettes, scanned them in to illustrator, laid them out with a fanciful frame and sent them over to New Zealand to be cut. They look so great I am designing a few different ones to add to the series.
A set of 4 casters are available over at my etsy shop, you can be sure these will add a little bit of fancy under that refreshing drink. And maybe even spruce up your table and home.
