Little Stocking Co. Character Illustration Reveal

I recently worked with a very cool company, Little Stocking Co. on character design. They were looking for two characters that would represent their brand, could be used for marketing and on packaging, and could also be updated using accessories and details in order to work with various collections of their stockings and knee highs. It was a really fun challenge and I was so happy with the way they came out.

Above represents their Schoolhouse collection as well as their Fairytale collection.

If you have littles, check out Little Stocking Co.'s shop, beautiful products for little fashionable girls. I definitely need to get some for my toddler :-)

Hope you enjoy!

Diary of a Freelancer

Freelancing, mommy-ing, and blogging can be hard. I'm not complaining, and I definitely wouldn't have it any other way, BUT I need to admit that - some days - I'm not the best juggler. I'm a work in progress, and I'm aiming toward a better balance... but it's still a work in progress.

There are days when I feel like I'm winning and days when I'm failing. But there is something about art that I can't stop. It's a drive in me, something I need to be doing, and I hope to be doing for a very long time.

So that brings me to my post. Where have I been? What have I been doing? Why did I go M.I.A. for so long. Well... juggler...  not the best... so there's that... I've wanted to be here, so much, but at the same time something needed to go on pause. I know the climb back will be tough, and I'm sure I'll have some slips along the way, but I also know it's important to me and I want to get back to it.

I've worked over the last few months with a lot of amazing clients. I wrapped up a bunch of jobs that I'm really proud of, and I can't wait to share them all with you! For now though, my start back at it, was to update my website. I'll be sharing those jobs in the coming days and weeks here and on instagram, but if you don't want to wait for me to share here, check out my site and see my new work there now. I'm not the best with patience so I get it hehe.

Above is my updated home page as well as a peek at a new page I added, My Sketchbook, where I'll be sharing more looks at work in progress, sketches, ideas that I'm playing out, trials on new styles and concepts, etc.

I hope you enjoy and I will be back in-touch soon.

I've missed you.
