i’ve been in a creative slump the past few weeks and not really wanting to work on anything. i’ve just been feeling lost inspirationally. there is a collaboration i am working on with a friend that is kind of helping me work through the stale weeks though. we’re working on children’s stories and i’ll be illustrating them with pen, ink, and watercolor. it’s really relaxing and giving me more ideas. i just love this medium!

these aren’t works for the book, i don’t want to reveal those yet until we have a solid look for it. but experimenting with other images is so much fun! i haven’t done watercolor since college and it’s way more inspiring now than it was before. i even did a few old sketches…

i definitely miss embroidery but maybe i was burning out on it and had to mix things up for a bit. hoping to get back to simpsons embroideries soon along with new additions to the etsy shop. but until i feel like doing those, i’ll be doing these…

hope you have a great weekend!!
