I’ve signed up to be in a craft fair in a few weeks. The last time I did a craft fair was before my kids were born! I plan to have watercolor characters for Christmas tree decorations. I’ll post some pics in the next few days.

I’ll be at OLV in State College on Saturday, December 2. Hope to see you there.

Mouse Evolution

It started with this little guy. I thought I wanted to make a little Christmas mouse out of wallpaper scraps. I found a pattern I liked and set to tracing, cutting and gluing. He was okay, but in the end I felt like I wanted something a little different.img_20170110_113110

So I started sketching and trying to come up with some kind of caricature. Here are some of the ideas I worked through.

Once I had a shape that I liked. I started roughly blobbing some ink on the page and after waiting for it to dry, I would draw the mouse. I liked this a lot! (Probably because that is how I did a gazillion dogs and cats.)

Eventually I ended up with a cute little mouse, that became part of my Christmas cards.

This little guy is missing his tail!
