I just found out that my Inspired? Squeegee shirt is featured in "The Perfect T-Shirt" an Etsy gift guide!!! I love the site CraftCult that makes finding this stuff out on Etsy so easy... Definitely check out the gift guide as it's full of some great designs!

Seeing as this is my 200th post, I thought it fitting to officially announce the opening of my new shop space. One of the primary reasons I moved from my apartment in the NW to NoPo was the promise that this space held.
I'm incredibly excited! Originally this space was a garage and had been used for home brewing. The current owner of the house had repurposed it as a dog pin and lounge space ( including a full size beer fridge) but in more recent years it's just been used for general storage. We removed a built in dog pin that was in the far left corner, installed a washtub over the french drain in the far right corner, installed a large chalkboard, some lights and modified a rescued cabinet from the rebuilding center into a drying and storage unit for the screens.
I hope to get my supplies sorted out this week and get going on two card projects for my Etsy shop before the weeks end. I also have several apparel projects in the works, with hopes of getting those printed by next week. Stay tuned!

I've officially been on Sabbatical for 7 days now. I spent the first day unpacking from my recent move, then repacking for my trip to Vancouver BC. Now that I'm back, I'm still organizing from the move. Though I think my new studio will be up and running in the next day or so. There's lots in the works and I thought I've neglected this blog long enough, so I took a few moments and put together the following composite of sketches of people I drew while exploring the Couve... I think I'm getting beter at these quickly drawn portraits/characters... More soon!
