Spring Projects and Events Update

So it's pretty clear now that I absolutely suck at updating this blog. This post will just be a round-up of what I've been up to this spring.

The drawing above is a commission I'm working on for a wedding gift. If you have a gift in mind for someone close to you, feel free to email me at sarah.m.ryan@gmail.com .

I posted a closer look on Instagram over the weekend:

I also had a lettering commission for a local band called Momma Hankton. The photos below show some of that process and the final product:

Lastly, I've already started my spring out with two great events, Crafty Balboa and Go West Craft Fest. Here are some other upcoming events:

Elephant Wreath

Hi everyone!

I wanted to share an illustration I finished earlier this month. Elephant ears were really fun to draw!

It's also available as a print on Etsy.

Here's a close up, for the details:


I drew this for some very special people who got married last year:


Speaking of weddings, my mermaid illustration is on some wedding invites available through Concertina Press. 



I love Ruth's design for them. Check out her other nautical stationary at www.concertinapress.com .

Cardinal Notecard

Cardinal Pair, watercolor & graphite on Rives BFK, 8x10", 2015.
This cardinal notecard is the first of a few bird themed cards I've been working on.

You can find it here on Etsy.



Usually getting the colors to print how I want is pretty strait forward. This time I clearly had a little more trouble. Maybe I'm just being picky, and they all look the same:

Spaghetti Valentine


I created a new notecard this week for Valentine's Day. I'm not usually super into the holiday, but food was involved with this illustration. I can always go for spaghetti and meatballs!

If you're in Philly, you can pick it up at The Italian Market Visitor Center.
If you're from anywhere else, it's available in my Etsy store.

Hello again!

I hope everyone's had a great start to your new year!

I finally finished artwork for my niece's nursery. This little fawn goes with the hedgehog in a teacup I posted last year.

If you would like your own copy, they are available as 5x7" prints in my Etsy store.


I hope you enjoy this little bit of spring in January!
