Getting Back into the Swing of Things

Slowly, but surely, I’m working to gather some creative momentum again. The past few months, I’ve organized my work space and made some good progress on some old projects that have been wanting for attention.

However, my first real foray back into the thick of things came as a custom order. This gentlemen reached out to me and was interested in a previous design – the Broccoli and Carrot friends. It seems these wonderful little figures have won many hearts!

I enlarged the design a bit so it would better fit on an adult sized shirt. They are even better at that size!

Here’s a peek at them in-progress:

And, complete – ready to be shipped:

I’m excited to send these off. What a wonderful way to get back into the swing of things!

Custom Design

I was approached by a happy, repeat customer about doing a custom design for her little girl and her friend. They are about the same age and they each have a beloved stuffed doll: (IKEA’s) Carrot Guy and Broccoli Man:

Aren’t these the most adorable things ever? I love IKEA.

So, we had a little back and forth, I sketched up a concept design that was just as she was envisioning them. Then I set to work and here they are, all completed:

One for each of them now, and one for them each to grow into!
