Daydreams Diary: Moving On

We’re slowly packing our things again for yet another move. The future is somewhat uncertain but we’ve been planning out how the next few months should go. We’re all so ready to leave this place, including my son. While I sorted out upcoming errands and filed away my folders for the night, I added this piece to the collection of prints coming up for sale as wall art and greeting cards. It actually started out as my son’s idea and it is brilliant. This one is another trip into the fantasy genre.

Why not escape far away for a while before we head someplace new and have to do all of that un-fun grown-up stuff. 🙂

Sneak Peeks

Working on Alicia while juggling my everyday life and work has been a blast. Getting to bring these tiny worlds to life for you has been like therapy. Look forward to the reveal of more characters coming up later this month. You will get to meet the adorable cast of characters and get to know them during my Character Profiles. Pretty soon we will be honing in on an official release date for the first episode. All of the sound, art, and animation are starting to flow together and the project is nearing completion.

Thank you for showing such love and excitement for this!

Love,

Daydreams

Sleepy Sundays: Dismissed

Dismissed
Dismissed

Fall seems to be coming to a close as swiftly as November. Both are eager to get out the door before winter begins roaring in. All of the little animals around here are scurrying around preparing for the upcoming colder months—much like some humans I’ve seen lately.

I do always get a tiny bit dreary as autumn says its final goodbyes. The past few days there’s been not much other than gray skies around here. Although I’m working on a lot more colorful projects for friends, in my own designs, I get to play.

In my own work, I get to be a bit moodier.

When you’re in a [mood], does it come out in your work? 😉

Have a shifting Sunday!

This Sunday I’m sharing two designs.

The colorful still in contrast with this dreamy night scene were both inspired by areas both visited this time of November. The autumn season has continued to seep into my designs once again. An approaching full moon creates wonderful light ideas in my night-inspired creations.

Do you love autumn nights?

Have an inspiring Sunday!

31 Nightmares 2016: The 27th

Sand Serpents

In my early twenties, I once experienced a strange nightmare like none other. I was in some gorgeous desert land where the sun seemed to create glitter in the sand. In some places there, the sand even appeared gold.

Although this dwelling’s beauty masked something sinister. There was an underground area that housed human-eating sand serpents. Their origin was apparently something ancient according to locals in the dream. I have no idea why I was there but was always fascinated by the scenery. That place has inspired many of my artworks to this day.


This has been Day 27 of
