This week I revisited these outfit drawings that I had started a couple of years ago. I’d love to make a repeats of each of these for wrapping paper. I can also picture them on notebooks and sketchbooks. (Thanks for that idea Sara!) Each series of dresses were designed with a specific gal in mind. Vivian, (above) has a classy, vintage look and wears her hair piled up like Joan Holloway from Mad Men. She’s quite sultry and she has a sneaky wit. She finds children to be loud and germy.
These dresses were designed for Francine. She’s got a Goldie Hawn, pixie hair cut (think the Laugh-in days) and pretty, small, rosebud lips. She’s a beautiful nerd who writes young adult novels about the trials of teenage love during the zombie apocalypse.
These outfits were designed for Gemma. She is a hilarious, sailor mouthed, skater/hippie girl. She has long, wild, almost ratty, yet gorgeous ombre hair. Her pet goats are named Blanca and Hugh and her tortoise is named Serge. She has a pickled carrot booth at the Saturday farmer’s market.
This week, I also revisited these bunny drawings. Lop eared bunnies are crazy cute. I’d love to see this group on a kid’s tee or maybe some jammies.
Alpacas, nature’s marshmallows. I think this might be a great blank card.
Highlights lately with our little Eden include hours of fun with a dollar store magnifying glass. “Look at THAT!”
She also loved attempting to scale “dirt mountain” at the park.
Lastly in this week’s news, check out this leopard that I painted yesterday. She’s my first leopard. I’m definitely going to need to make a repeat pattern of this lady. I’ll get the fabric printed for dresses for me and Eden. A can see a short-ish caftan for me and a little apron type dress for Eden. I can see it in my mind and I really like it!
