watercolors. inspired a bit by this. I have a hard time having the colors be vivid and strong. It seems everything comes out a bit pale and washed out. I have to work on that.

little picture list.

tried to experiment with making patterns. I think I got carried away. It looks too much like an Easter egg now! It’s rather small (3in in diameter), but it took A LOT of time to do. Nevertheless, I think I will continue to explore patterns and such, though next time I won’t get carried away with the colors.

this is taking longer than I thought, but I hope it will look mice in the end.

making a little pattern embroidery. It will be place in a smaller hoop at the end (hence the small circle). Added some lace to it for fun.this is fun! I haven’t embroidered in months!

The Way the Moon Makes the Snow Sparkle
Made this for the “Why I Adore the Night" challenge on the Projet d’Amour blog. I needed an artistic prompt of some kind, and decided to go with this one.
(watercolors, white gel pen)
p.s. I need a better scanner.

Bzzzz & Honey


a little story I created in September  2009. I’ve been wondering if I should expand it, or rework the  illustrations (it feels it could look better in watercolors no?), and  offer it as a zine.
Either way, for now you can see it at the link (click through the illustrations to go to their flickr pages)
