For All the Brave Ones

Corfee-BeBraveColoring-IG

My sweet friend, Amy, asked me if i had a coloring page i could share for her child’s class service project. They are making “BE BRAVE” craft/coloring folders for Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, in honor of their classmate. i was happy to make one, of course. And then thought…… it’d be even better if i shared it with my whole community. There are too many brave kids fighting cancer. i realize life isn’t fair…..but it just seems unbearably wrong.

If you know a little brave heart who is fighting this battle….or any child who might find strength or hope in this message right now, please help yourself. Just click the image for your download.

A Simple Reminder to Color

Screen Shot 2016-03-28 at 10.41.04 AM

i recently got a new iPad Pro. i got it to make life easier, staple myself to my desk less often, and work smarter, not harder. In the past, i’d make coloring pages by sketching on paper, then using marker paper and a light box to ink the sketched design, then scan to my computer, open in Photoshsop, clean up the inevitable blobs and bleeds in certain areas caused by marker on paper (even good paper!), then convert to crisp, clean vectors in Illustrator. The process was taking up more time than necessary, and had me at me computer a lot more than i needed to be. After looking into the Cintiq Companion and the iPad Pro, since both allowed for “anywhere” digital drawing, i chose the iPad Pro for it’s other capabilities and cheaper price tag. i still plan to be in-studio for all my hands-on painting work, so i really juts wanted a way to streamline my sketching and vector work, so it was a good choice for me, i THINK!! : )

SO…..now i have been practicing and getting used to the tools and the responsiveness of the apple pencil, and all that jazz…..so you guys will be getting lots of my experiments shared with you as freebie downloads for a little while. Enjoy!! Once i get a good grip on it, i will be adding lots more clip art and digital files to my etsy shop that will be great for your kiddos, for wall art, for party favors and invites, and whatever else you can think of.

Happy Monday! Do Good in the world today!! xo,s

Fun Sketchbook Giveaway!

The summer has flown by in a flurry of late nights with the baby, early mornings…with the baby and the big boys (why don’t they understand how great sleeping in is!?), projects, deadlines, lots of video editing (Doodle Days) and Lord knows what all else. i feel as though my productivity putting out fresh art has slowed so much. i feel like i haven’t posted nearly enough pretty things for you all!

SO! A Giveaway to close out this crazy whirlwind of a summer, and encourage you guys (and myself) to crank up the creativity this fall.

i painted the cover of a cute little sketchbook and want to send it off to one of you lovely people. If you win, you have to promise to post your first sketch in it onto my facebook page, ok???

To enter, simply comment here saying how you will fill the pages…sketches? marker drawings? portraits? poems? doodles? There’s no wrong answer! i’ll use a random number generator to choose a winner from the comments next week. Please comment just once : ) But SHARE the post with your creative friends, so they can take a chance too.

UPDATE: this giveaway is now over and the winner has received her prize! Congratulations Britny!

xoxo, s

back to school fun

i put together a pre-made collage of my favorite artworks for you all! i sized it to fit on Staples brand composition notebooks. All you have to do is print/cut/and glue or decoupage it down to the cover. Use matte medium. decoupage medium, or Mod Podge to stick the print down and then coat the top. When fully dry, Mom and Dad may want to spray outside with a clear coat of sealer to cut down on any remaining “stickiness” and give it a tough protective layer.

The download is here. Have fun this new school year!!

Summer Doodling Program for KIDS!

Introducing my first Kids-Geared Doodle Program perfect for summer vacation! What a fun way to keep your kids using that creative right-brain all summer long!

Kids are so proud when they can create impressive artwork on their own. Once the doodles are done, get creative with your kids! Have an end of summer art show, scan their work and have it printed on t-shirts, or decoupage their favorites onto frames for grandma or their teacher.

Here are the details for Doodle Days of Summer!

- 12 doodle demo videos, roughly 1 per week for the whole summer

-Videos will be hosted on my Vimeo page online.

-You will have UNLIMITED! password access to all videos

-$15 per household/family so siblings can all participate.

****Please note: if you are a camp administrator, scout leader, or teacher and would like to purchase for your group, please contact me for group pricing. i am happy to provide it!

Feel free to register at any time and go at your own pace. It doesn’t have to be summer, even!

i’ve created a free printable example for you! (just click the image below) You can expect the weeklies to have about this level of detail. But each of the 12 weeks will have a different theme. This one was CIRCLES. Also planned are: Flowers, Robot, Surfboard, Monsters, Birds, Letters and more!

i’ve also included a little teaser video that shows  a portion of what the tutorials will be like, so that you can gauge whether the program will be appropriate for your little artist.
