Designing promo cards to do a mailing! Also, I am going to try to be ambitious and do a new illustrated recipe every month while I also work on the children's book. I think its better to have more than one project going at a time in case I feel burnt out or stuck. Honestly the hardest part is measuring out the rooms and making straight lines...I hate straight lines.
I also received the prototype of the cloth java jacket (cup sleeve) I am having produced. I am going to see if the sides can be tapered in to hug the cup completely and maybe I can have them made from recycled bottle. If all this works out the price might go up a bit, but it will be so worth it.
And here is the art (minus the adjustments I will need to make to have it fit properly on a sleeve)

Newest commission! Love these little guys. It is not every day that I get to draw bunnies. The one in the center, Toby, is the alpha. The one on the left is Bailey and had a leg that never healed properly so it sticks out, which is sad but still so cute. Lastly, the not-so-little guy on the right is Benjamin, liked to eat everything...Benjamin is also a girl. Apparently they all loved bananas.

Here is the Illustration for the new Tote! I am super excited. They are with a new vendor (the one that did the wine totes). I am going to try and make totes a bit more often. I want to do another run of the cactus loves squirrel after this. Also, I would love to find some vendors for the merch so if anyone has contacts or ideas I am all ears.

I have had a very busy end of year, which has meant that all drawing has ceased and not because I wanted it to. After Xmas and a very whirlwind new years and work I had to train for a barista competition I participated in for Intelligentsia Coffee's wholesale accounts.
It was really fun :
Now, I am back and ready for some serious overhauls. I am working on a new book, cleaning house, and getting a new website that has a blog embedded...amazeballs!
I am also going to be competing in the North East Region Barista Competition so that will take up a bit more time from my life, but I plan to get this book done by Feb.
Ok, off to work on new totes that will be coming soon and thank you cards.
