Ahhh!! Thank you to everyone who followed along the Original Art Sale on
. this past Wednesday. It was so much fun! I painted 8 illustrations on the spot, from 1-3pm. I can't get over how quick everyone was. I hope it wasn't too distracting from work ;). I also took some videos of my process, a very tricky task while you draw. My hands were shaking from the adrenaline and nervousness, my mind spun trying to figure out the next illustration. I've been busy with filling Valentine's Day orders and custom work so although stressful, the thrill and joy of drawing whatever I wanted was so gratifying and a necessary pause from the hustle. I'll be hosting another one soon FOR SURE.
Have a look at some of the illustrations I painted--
I'm trying something new this year. Presenting.......
