Halloween products are so popular in art licensing and I’m always looking for ideas on how to promote my art on products. So I got this idea to put a black vampire cat from my Happy CatZ™ collection onto a throw pillow. And then I had a thought to add the cute words… “bite me” to the design!. Haha! Made me laugh! This is just a mockup of the design onto a throw pillow but I’m thinking of opening up a POD shop )Print on Demand) to be able to sell this design on throw pillows until it gets licensed. I’m also going to do some of my dog images from my Happy DogZ™ collection in the same concept. So far I’ve got my black Scottie Dog done in the design! Check back to see how you can order these throw pillows for Halloween!
Here is my Dachshund Sledding illustration. I did this design as part of my Advent Christmas countdown in December 2015. It was the first time that I tried to keep up with doing an illustration a day for the whole 24 day countdown until Christmas. So this was where he first showed up. Since then, I’ve made a tradition red color version instead of the pink and teal these. I also developed him into a greeting card design that says, “Dachshund thru the snow…” which I think is so funny!.I love this little illustration so much, maybe at some point I’ll make a little animation with him sledding along.
This Unicorn Dreams illustration came out of an Illustrated Quote Art Challenge for the Art Licensing Show. I was imagining a unicorn looking at the stars and dreaming. Which is honestly something I often do. I have always been a star-gazer… And of course the quote is from Van Gogh, who really has so many lovely quotes circulating out there in the blogosphere. Though I can’t remember if I found the quote first and then I had the image to go with it or the other way around.
I love that unicorns are such magical creatures. Which is why I gave this one some curly tendrils for hair and freckles on his face. And the color is not a bright white but more of slight off-white which has more contrast against the teal background. Continue reading “Unicorn Dreams… Looking at the Stars Makes me Dream”
