Sweet Summertime Cats

Well, another Surtex art licensing trade show has come and gone and now I’m busy with the follow-up part. ย I’ve also been working on some Summer designs with my Happy CatZโ„ข and Happy DogZโ„ข. Designs like this one showing a boy and girl cat both eating ice cream and giving each other googly eyes. You remember googly eyes don’t you?

And a few designs I’m working on with my dogs are a Jack Russell Terrier dog surfing, a Pug dog relaxing in his beach tube with his favorite summer drink. And I’m thinking of something with a Bulldog, hmmm, maybe he’s grilling?

It’s really starting to feel like summer here in the Santa Fe area! I just love the smells of summer. Especially first thing in the morning when I take the dogs outside and hear all of the birds chirping… just heaven.

Keeper of the Bees

Here is a new design that I created for a wall art challenge on The Art Licensing Show. I’ve been wanting to do this concept for awhile but it felt a bit overwhelming to me. Sometimes I know what i want to create but I’m not sure how it’s going to come together. So with this concept I started doing a lot of research on Botanical illustration, Victorian gardens, bees, bee keeping, lots of garden illustrations etc, etc. Then I did the illustration in a step by step process starting with the Beekeeper girl.ย
