The Magician & The Red Rabbit

MagicianRabbit

One of my most recent gifts for my friend over at Mythic Skies Art. It was a fun experiment, lost of things learned and played with– And he seemed to enjoy it. Onto my Christmas gifts, now!

Halloween Challenge!!!! cont. again

Phew! Been a busy week, can you tell? Anyway, throwing the next few up from the art challenge I’ve been enjoying this month! Here you have Days 13 thru 15. The next set is, sadly, unfinished, but for the sake of catching up after a week of heavy overtime in the real world, they’ll be posted up shortly for you to see.

Remember, if you want to follow these little spot illustrations daily, hop on over to the Simply Kitts Tumblr and +Follow!

A few additional note… I adore my spirits in high spirits, as well as dark parties for albino rats, but this set finally stumped me on the theme “orange”. I’d already done pumpkins, and I didn’t want to draw fruit. As I sat, pondering, I realized that I really wanted orange to be awesome because it’s my current favorite color (you know artists, always finding new favorites!) I looked down at my orange sweater and realized that I would be the best option for Orange. So, viola. You got a weird little self portrait that not only showcases Simply Kitts Illustrations– But Red Rabbit Comics, too 😀 The end!

A New Sketchbook (To be Sold!)

One of the various ongoing projects of mine, a new sketchbook cover. The nice thing about the Moleskin cashiers journals, besides being able to choose from blank, lined or graph paper– or its nice size– is that the brown of the cover makes the perfect middle ground so both white and black inks really get a chance to shine together.

Eventually, once I figure out an avenue for it other than Etsy.com (It’s become a bit of a monster…), this and the other notebooks I’ve been working on will be going up for sale. With any luck, I’ll also be getting a variety of my cards up as well, so you can cover any holiday in style!

Exploring with INKlings

It’s been awhile since I’ve done much of anything with these guys, and now that I’ve opened an online shop-type-things (at RedBubble.com) I realized that some of these cuties would make awesome stickers and such. So… Here they are all colored and played with. I’m planning to continue working with a selection of the others with a similar intent in mind. This little project of mine has also rekindled my desire to continue working on my INKling sketches. Those will be making an appearance here in a short while!

See? Still Doing Things and Stuff!

Just a little example of some of the work I’ve finished in recent history. I’ll have more work up soon including my latest promotional piece, “Ichabod”.

The Series of Thanks is Completed

And just like that, the series is completed and ready to go.

I’m a little sad to be finished with this fun mini series of cards, since I enjoyed working on them as much as I did. I’ve really done my best this time around, and I feel it comes through clearly.

Alas, it is time to move forward with a new confidence earned from a project well done, and begin tackling the next challenge I’ve designed. 🙂

Onward and Upward!

Thanks for the Phone Call!!

Thanks for the Phone CallAt last!! My series is complete!

All five “Thank You Cards” are done and ready for mocking up at long last, so now it’s off to the printers to get that part done. I’ll show you the finished work once it’s done, but for now I’m excited to move onto my next task!

Star Trek movie pack, here I come!

Announcements Sent Forth!

Variety Ready to go

Commencement Announcements have been finished and officially sent out into the world.

If you aren’t sure you’re going to get one, or I don’t have your address, please let me know and get that to me ASAP, okay?

I’ve learned a valuable lesson with all of this…

… Order them professionally next. They will not only look better, but be less of a headache.

Thank You for the Raindrops

Thank You Drops

Finally in the home stretch with only one more card to go! As I draw closer to completing this series and thinking about the End of Semester show the second Friday of May, I keep thinking of ways to display or sell my hard work. It’s a little exciting, thinking about something like that in such a way, going over in my head “Should I display them as cards or hang them in frames as more traditional art?” or “What if I package them up in fives and sell them? Would people buy any?”

I wonder what I’ll decide!

The next card will be my last to finalize, and then it’s off to print and mock up. I hope you’ve been enjoying the completion of the series as much as I have, and I’m very excited to get started on my next assignment. Will I be finishing library cards, or moving onto a Star Trek movie package?

Hmm… So many choices!!!
