My son’s tenth birthday is tomorrow. I asked what he wanted me to draw for him for a tee shirt as a birthday present, he said “a Squirrelicorn, with a rainbow tail.”

Well, here you go, a Squirrelicorn with a rainbow tail. Also a golden acorn, which probably is what transformed this ordinary squirrel into a squirrelicorn.

I hope my client is happy with it.

So someone on my Facebook page quipped that my pink koalas looked naked. Go ahead, navigate back a day and look. Now that she said that I can’t unsee it – they look naked to me.

Thing is, I tried going standard gray koala and it was just plain boring. And my line on this piece isn’t quite good enough to just do black and white drawing style. My husband suggested rainbow. It was a little intense, so I decided to do rainbow ears instead. 

Took me all damned day! I have no idea if I like it or if it’s any good; ask me in a couple of months. Here it is on Redbubble

I’ve gotten to the point where I have to look up what number I’m on! I’m so proud that I’ve made it this far – but I know I’ve got a long way to go.

Today I did bees! I love bees – they are so graphic and of course so essential to the wellbeing of our planet and all its inhabitants. 

I am sticking with my ‘stamped’ style of illustration for these. It’s not my only illustration style, but I did want to try to have a consistency as much as possible for this set of animal illustrations and patterns.

Speaking of patterns, today is the standalone illustration. Tomorrow will come the pattern. See it on Redbubble!
