Text Me A Picture

I just received my order of letterpress blocks in the mail. I saw them online and had to have them. I bought a set of random pieces and I am going to find a way to fit them in my illustrations.

I am so excited to get started. If they work out I am going to order an entire alphabet set. I currently seemed to be obsessed with text. It reminds me of when I was younger and I would spend the whole day creating fonts. Bubble text was my favorite!

Off to "text," have a great night!

Illustrated Name

     My friend just had a baby named Charlotte.... Love that name :)  I made a little piece of artwork for her. I hope she likes it!  My niece Jenny just had a baby so I think I need to do a Maci Jo piece too!  Jenny's sister Liz just found out she is having a boy, so I will have to think of some "Boy" type things.  I have 2 girls, so I tend to be a little bit on the girly side of illustration.  How can you not love pink?
     I am currently working on a picture book manuscript for the #PBDummy challenge.  Trying to come up with something clever in 500 words or less is much more difficult that it sounds!

Back to work....I have so much to do!
