City of Craft!

The holidays are just around the corner, come to City of Craft this weekend to get something handmade by your favourite local artisans! As this year's designer for City of Craft, I created the above winter poster and I am so delighted that it will be screen printed by Kid Icarus! The same arctic foxy will also be available on a tote bag screen printed by the one and only Shannon Gerard (plus amazing volunteers). If you are one of the first 100 brave souls that line up to walk through the doors on Saturday morning of the show, you will be rewarded with a free tote bag (for the icy weather you must endure). See you next weekend and don't forget to bundle up! 

Now it's time for me to get back to crafting!

Bunfest 2013!

Bunnies and bunny lovers unite! Bunfest is happening this Sunday! 

I revisited some of my childhood photographs last night and noticed the many bunny outfits I had on. I knew I was destined to celebrate and fond over these long eared and fluffy friends. 

See you there!

Global Talent Search Round Two

Below is my submission for the second round of Lilla Rogers' Global Talent Search. Our assignment was to create an Autumn theme tote bag that would be sold at the farmer's market. I had so much fun painting delicious apples being drizzled with caramel and sprinkled with flower petals. You will have a chance to vote for your favourite illustrated piece here starting tomorrow September 3rd until Monday, September 9th. Your votes will allow a sixth finalist to advance into the final round of the Talent Search!
