Two shows this month ~ November 2015

Right in the heart of Jericho VT, the Jericho Artisan Market is a sweet and intimate event.
I love that it's back at the Community Center, and all vendors are local to the area.
My second year doing this awesome show! Come see over 80 vendors (all women-owned businesses!)

Early sketches from my 2015 Advent Calendar

Taking these in-progress shots with my phone
On the left is what I had last week. Below is a little sneak-peek of what I started with this morning.
Between getting the design nailed down, correcting the perspective and tweaking the drawing style of the reindeer to match the rabbits, this has been a loooooong slow process. Spent most of the day designing the border and background, and then painting it all in. Whew! Last week I got all of the inside images drawn and colored.
Next up: scanning it all and making it work with Photoshop, Then printing, cutting all the doors (24x3 per calendar!), carefully gluing together and packing them up. And posting them on Etsy! That's how we do it, kids. 


Phew! Can't believe I made it this far in one day!
