A Handful of Vintage Ladies, a Fox, a Raccoon, and a Flying Pig

It sounds like the punchline to a bizarre joke, doesn't it? What could those things  possibly have in common?


I am just too lazy to create separate posts just for the sake of continuity. 

In reality, I've been working on a serious of postcards feature vintage ladies, AND I also recently participated in art swaps wherein it was my job to create animals.

 This is for a "Woodland Creatures" swap. I made the fox and raccoon out of Gelli prints. I also threw in extras that reminded me of the woods.

 I made this little lady for a "Cardboard Animals" swap. I laid down a bunch of pink bits and pieces first then drew the pig over the top.

Once I cut out the pig, there was some extra cardboard, so I created this ATC (Artist Trading Card).

I usually spend at least one hour per day creating something. It soothes me. It make me feel less lonely when I'm away from my house, my husband, my cat during the week.

  1. I love your combinations of pinks, purples and greys in your postcards. You manage to retain that vintage feel while also making them contemporary. Your animal pieces are great fun.
