Summer heat.....but still busy. I recently had an offer to do illustrations for a kids book. The story is defiantly an important story to be told. Sorry I can't give it away! I've had lots of ideas but apprehensive about diving into something I'm not all that sure about. I'll do my research and see how it goes.
In the mean time I created some new goodies. Bird Talk is new. I'm not even sure how it came to be, Maybe a little bird told me so. I love them. I think they would make a great note card pack.
What do you think?

White Rock Sea Festival

It was my first time setting up and selling art! The weekend was very successful for the whole family. Matt was the MC on the main stage and did a wonderful job, defiantly in his element. Kaya Moon (8yrs) sold her first painting, which is amazing we're so proud of her!
There was a good turn out for the event, I met many people and had lots of positive feedback. My Mini Moo cards were a hit ( they were so adorable) I had 100 and they were almost all gone on the first day.
I ended up selling six pieces which I think is amazing considering people usually lookers not buyers at a festival. One couple bought my Hummingbird Haven painting, it was there anniversary so I was honored to be part of that. I met a wonderful artist, Erika, to see her amazing creations go to: erikakoenigworkman.com
I had an inquiry about doing children's CD covers/books, that was interesting we'll see how that goes.
All in all it was a very fruitful weekend. I even had three of my favorite girls sleepover, two were on their way and coming back from Las Vegas. Juicy... juicy Vegas time!!!!
