I have some pretty exciting updates to share! A lot has been going on, and if you haven't noticed, I even got around to updating the design of the blog. It feels much more "me" and I love it! Beyond the new look of the website, I have a lot of news to share. I like lists to keep my thoughts straight, so here's what's been going on in list form:
- I re-launched my coloring book club, The Color Club! by Mixed Mayhem Studios. There are free coloring book pages I made myself in the group, but you don't have to color my work to join. If you like adult coloring books, this is a group for you! Learn more here.
- Perhaps even more exciting than picking my coloring club project back up is that I published my very first coloring book! Inner child me is positively doing cartwheels of excitement over this! You can pick up a copy at Amazon (affiliate link). Copies should start arriving this Friday!
- In addition to re-designing the blog, I've fleshed out some of the pages a bit more, to include a list of favorite art supplies I use in my own creative practice!
- I've launched new surface pattern designs on Society6 and Redbubble respectively. Some of the designs are also venturing over onto my own Shopify store.
Why so many stores? Well, Society6 and RedBubble each have options that the other does not have (many of which I want to purchase for myself, lol), and my Shopify store allows me an even higher level of customization and even further product options than either Society6 or Redbubble. Either way, I am having a great time tinkering! I have made more art and interesting designs in the last few weeks than I have in years. My designs feature bright colors and complex, ornate patterns. I'll be honest, as I've already mentioned, a lot of what I've made is because I want to order a fair amount of it for myself. What can I say, I'm still a kid at heart and love wearing bright rainbow-y things. I'm that adult at the store that walks past the kid stuff and pouts because the rainbows and cute things aren't made in my size.
New patterns are also on the way and being launched exclusively for Valentine's Day! Get a sneak peek here to check out the first design in the collection. Let me know what you think in the comments!
