New Channel and a New Print!

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.

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.

I have bunnies on the brain.  I really shouldn’t because I’m a home owner and we don’t take too kindly to them eating up our lawns.  But if I see them anywhere else, they get an “aww” from me, every time.  I have been sketching them over and over and one of them turned into this unicycle watercolor print.  Now available in my shop.

Is there anything you think is the cutest as long as it isn’t in your own backyard?  Do tell.

I’m sure you have heard of bookworms, but have you heard of bookwhales?  They are a real little subculture and so interesting.  These particular whales gather in their cozy knits and talk about their favorite stories.

They chit chat when they attend their weekly book clubs of course.  Fascinating.

This cute little guy is available in my shop.

I would love it if you would say hi, comments are my favorite.  Have a great day!

I had an epiphany this weekend.  Since I’ve been “out of the game” or at least feeling like it for so long, I didn’t know how to get back in the saddle.  I love my baby girl SO much and I feel guilty even uttering any negative words that can come off as excuses for the brakes being pushed pretty hard on my illustration life.  Back in the day I had time to let my mind drift, sketch and let that sketch turn into something.  In the back of my mind that has still been there but growing, falling over and getting back up again in this new chapter called motherhood has taken first place.  Rightfully so but there are other art mamas (you inspire me!) that are doing both and then some so I can do it too.

My epiphany was that I had to change my art process.  Completely.  There aren’t enough hours in the day and I am the only piece of the puzzle that can change.  So I got back in my saddle aka desk chair and got to work.  A couple weeks ago baby girl took a 3 hour nap so I was able to completely ditch my old watercolor palette, wash it out and refill it.  There were paints I had squeezed into the corners of my palette and they were bleeding into my paint puddles, my watercolors were rock hard and crusty (a huge no-no).  So once I reloaded it and used it for the first time, it felt so great.  This is how watercolor is supposed to act.  Free flowing and unpredictable.

This little guy appeared and I hope many more appear to join him.
