Sweet Summertime Cats

Well, another Surtex art licensing trade show has come and gone and now I’m busy with the follow-up part.  I’ve also been working on some Summer designs with my Happy CatZ™ and Happy DogZ™. 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.

It’s Surtex time again and I’m so happy to say that my art is finally making it back to this premier art licensing trade show with my agent Suzanne Cruise Creative Services, Inc. Surtex, is an annual Art Licensing  trade show in New York city for Artists, Designers, Manufacturers, and Retailers. It’s now in its 32nd year! SURTEX® is the global B2B marketplace for sourcing original art & designs — where artists, art agents, licensing agencies and licensors connect with manufacturers, retailers and licensees to create products in multiple categories. Home décor and furnishings, apparel, automotive accessories, beauty, bed and bath, fabric prints, floor coverings, juvenile, giftware and novelties, stationery, tabletop, wall treatments, private label and much more. If it’s any product with a surface or textile design of any kind, there’s a good chance it originated at SURTEX.

My agent Suzanne Cruise, has been doing Surtex for decades and their booth this year is #2909.
