New Channel and a New Print!

Filed under Etsy, Handmade, Illustrations, Process, Video

I’ve been a busy girl over here trying to figure out how to record and edit video on my iPad. I set up my YouTube channel, fluximagery, (like and subscribe!) and two videos are published so far. I’ll show more works in progress in the future. There is no sound because that part was driving me insane with copyright infringement and all that.

One day I will have sound on my videos, mark my words. If you have any feedback, leave me a comment, I would love it.

Also, this print is now available in my Etsy shop right here.

On Repeat

One of the things I’ve always wanted to do was design patterns.  Which is pretty odd because wearing patterns scares me.  I know big prints overwhelm and other cardinal rules like that but I usually steer clear and just stick with basics.  I took yet another Skillshare class (love!) and it was excellent.  I just worked out my first digital pattern because of my love of juicing my green juice and I’m pleased with how it turned out!  There is a LOT of adjusting involved with this so where the repeat isn’t obvious and you get a good flow.  It is incessant but necessary, just a little warning.

I am going to submit it to Spoonflower so I can have it available there and maybe there will be a pair of sister pants made for Addy and her little sister?  I hope so, so excited.

I wonder what I should make into a pattern next.

Winter Bunnies

I think I have sweaters and all things winter on the brain because I’m not wearing these items myself.  I’m in full maternity gear but form fitting and representing the bump.  My bunnies and bears get all the fun this season….and all the bulk.

Now available in my shop.

Today is the 20th day of Inktober and I’m 20 weeks this week (half-way mark!).  I wasn’t sure if I could draw every day but so far so good and I want to continue past October.  It is such a good practice to maintain.

I’m still kicking this cold, turned sinus infection, turned cold again.  I bought some probiotics (kefir and yogurt), hoping those help.  No way am I doing sauerkraut.  This was the first year we couldn’t make it out to the mountains to see the leaves change but there are plenty here to look at too.

The colors are gorgeous, the leaves fall much too quickly.

Gone Girl

Oh. My. God.  I just finished reading Gone Girl, fastest I have read a book in a very long time.  I think only two weeks??  I already knew I wanted to go see the movie in the theater but had no idea when that would happen.  So I compromised by reading the book for now.

I am just, no words.  Now that it is over I want to talk about it!  You should follow me on Twitter and if you have read it, let’s talk in direct messages.  Or say stuff here but no spoilers!  That was a good ride that was perfectly matched with book form.  Watching the movie will be completely different.

Almost forgot how much I love reading.

Note to My Mom: Don’t read this one.
