So little time!

Today I focussed on a something we sometimes take for granted: time!

Should is deadwood!



This is one of favourite expressions! It's direct and straight to the point and much needed kick to the creative butt on this very snowy Monday!

A wonderful day!



This will be my first tiny narratives illustration of the year! Today's coffee mug was inspired by a snow day here in New Brunswick. It's a good day to stay in, draw, illustrate, work on children's book illustrations and drink coffee. Have the best Friday!

Merry Sketchmas: Holly Jolly!

When I was kid I heard many call me Holly Jolly- that and folks asking if I was a Christmas baby. Well, I was born in May and I was almost called 'Honey.' I believe my Mum made the better choice on that decision! As far as feeling Holly Jolly, I am feeling quite festive this Christmas more than I have in a long time.

The movie Elf spotlights many of my favoite things like smiling and sugar. I beleive in the four main food groups: candy, candy canes, candy corns and syrup. On that note, I am going to start my Christmas baking this weekend.

My girls asked me to illustrate a dog with antlers. Yes, we watched The Grinch and we all agree the dog is the star of the show and saves the day! Go dogs!

Merry Sketchmas: all I want for Christmas!

All I want for Christmas is this cute hippopotamus! I remember as a kid my Mum playing this record. Yes I said record, it was the '70's. Anyway, it's still a fave and I still secretly (now everyone knows) still want one!

I decided to update my Facebook, twitter and other social media with new cover illustrations. With this, the mitten will be the profile pic and the creative snow will be on the cover image. Time to paint!

Lately I've become addicted to ginger spice lattes so I decided to sketch that loving kiss/hug from a mug. I think I may make this my Christmas card!

It's December 5th and I'm already feeling the Christmas rush. This weekend I'm going to take time to bake, wrap and relax...and get ready for the next big snow day due on Monday or Tuesday.
