I've been busy this spring! So busy, that I just realized today I haven't updated my blog for a while. I wanted to share what I've been up to for the past month.
I have two wonderful new stockists here in Philadelphia.
In Old City, my products are available in the new store, Philadelphia Independents. They're located at 35 N 3rd St. The pictures below were taken at their grand opening last Friday:
In South Philadelphia, I'm stocked by Knack. They're located at 1726 E Passyunk Ave. East Passyunk is full of lots of great shops and restaurants, and is one of my favorite parts of Philadelphia.
I had the opportunity to participate in two really fun craft markets.
On May 3rd I went to Go West Craft Fest in The Woodlands in West Philadelphia. The setting was absolutely beautiful! There were a ton of people, great vendors, and live music all day long.
On April 26th I participated in Crafty Balboa April Showers. This was in conjunction with Flavors of the Avenue, and was right in my neighborhood on East Passyunk. I couldn't have asked for a better day!
Currently, I have some original work hanging up in Gleaners Cafe and Gallery right in the Italian Market. If you go, make sure to order a "Baby's Mama" ... that's a bagel sandwich with tomatoes, basil, mozzarella, and pesto mayo...mmmmm!
- If you are going to the Art Star Craft Bazaar this weekend, be sure to visit the Art Dept at booth #3. They'll have some of my stuff, as well as other great handmade goods from Philly artists.
- I'll be at Phair on July 5th sharing a space with the wonderful By Yivvie ... Philadelphia's the best place to be on Fourth of July weekend; come say hello!

I listed some new things on Etsy today, just in time for Mother's Day!
I painted these little butterflies, and created brooches and cards from the illustrations.

I've recently been experimenting with printing my illustrations on shrink plastic. Here are the results!
To see more, please visit my etsy store.
They're great if you need a little something for Easter or Mother's Day. I'm going to design more; if you have an idea you'd like to see made, let me know in the comments :)

A peck on the cheek!
The Sktchy app put out a challenge to draw a Valentine themed portrait using their app. This is my submission. I was going to do two, but my productivity's been super low since the Olympics started.
I photographed this at night, so it's a little blurry; here's a close up so you can see some detail:

I just illustrated some new notecards.
I felt like I should do something for Valentine's Day, but I didn't want it to be frilly and pink. I think this bear is about as romantic as I'm going to get. It's available on Etsy and at The Art Dept. in Philly.
This penguin card was originally designed as my Christmas card. The cold weather hasn't gone away here in Philly, so I put it up on Etsy as an every day/winter kind of card.
I hope you're all staying cozy and warm!

I played around with the Sktchy app again today. This week's Illustration Friday topic is "disguise", so I found a photo on the app to work from that went with that theme. Drawing someone with face paint is harder than I thought!
