With the advance of Spring, I've found myself craving some new bright designs! I've been working on a series I called "My Trusted Tools" celebrating my beloved crayons and pens who never fail to convey my enthusiasm to the page. It only takes one stroke to start something! So, here it is for the tools that give us that stroke (of genius?)!Read More
I got lucky to recently be commissioned for a portrait for an amazing family! It was so nice to be a part of a special moment for them, and be able to capture the joy and love of this family!
We carefully chose the background to evoke a special place in their heart and anchor the drawing in their personal history. I love the flowing dress, the holding of hands, and joy of their beautiful little girl!
I am always very humbled and excited that people trust me with capturing a beautiful moment of their lives, and I had such a great time drawing this one!
And here is final art in frame!
Hey guys: SURPRISE!
Like a magician and her rabbit, I am pulling a very extra-limited original edition of (6) Valentine's Day cards out of my hat, just in the nick of time!
Illustrated by moi of course, but also printed and hand-cut in house! My fingerprints are all over this series (well, not literally though, I'm a professional!). The prints are gorgeous, the colors deep and vibrant and the ink came out so well, I am really happy with the way the series turned out. I must say, I really love printing myself as I have much more control, I can endlessly tweak (although my wallet & sleep would tend to disagree) but it is so time-consuming that I'll call this series the Deluxe!
I only have a few sets, so it is New York limited (mostly because shipping would take too much time), and I can meet you or ship them in the city. Just send me an email at petitespattesdemouche (at) gmail (dot) com or text me if you have my number, and I'll make sure you'll get them on time!
Here is the full set:
Grab a first edition of the Valentine's Deluxe (it makes me chuckles, he he) for that day where you "don't really want to do anything because you love her everyday" but you know deep down, you HAVE to do something, anything (but not just chocolate). It'll make a very personal and sweet gift for the special someone. And if you're not really into balloons, I still have a few sets of the cats here.
Here are the deeds:
Printed on white, heavy-weight archival paper
4.5" x 6.25" one-sided (no folds)
$4 single + white envelope
$20 set of (6) + white envelopes
Any questions? No hesitations, email me at petitespattesdemouche (at) gmail (dot) com
Happy Lovers' Day!
I've been wanting to make a silkscreen hoodie for the longest time! First off, I love hoodies! Second, I own a few that are silkscreened and I really enjoy the textures you can get and the feel of the print; the overall look has a uniqueness to it that I'd like to work with.
I have worked with silkscreen before, but it was pretty basic. I'd like to experiment with textures and transparencies, see what is possible with the medium. So, I am doing my research right now, and I'd like to find a shop to talk to the experts, and see what options are out there. I know there are a few very good ones in the city, I will definitely give it a go soon! In the meantime, I've been putting together what could be my first design.
Here is the "In the Air" illustration for a silkscreen hoodie! What do you think?
And here is a detail of the illustration
