Recent Sketches courtesy of instagram


i was a latecomer to instagram, now i couldn’t bear to live without it. the quickest and super cutest way to share vignettes of my sketches on the fly….here’s a peek inside my sketchbook of late.

…..yeeeahhhhhh…..i haven’t decided which filters are my faves yet : )

Custom Lil Fashionista Illustrations

LBBinkColori love collaborating with creative people. Awesome things always emerge.

The above illustration is one i recently completed for Ashley over at Lil Blue Boo. You may have read my recent post about how we collaborated on some kids dresses featuring one of my art prints.

Anyway, Ashley asked if i’d do a little illustration of a girl wearing an LBB in a fashion-y, sketchy style for her new business cards. i created this drawing with her beautifully curly-headed Boo in mind. And since i had SO much fun sketching this little lovely, i thought i’d offer this style of “simplified portrait” in my etsy shop as well.

The idea is to capture your little one’s essence and fashion sense. To freeze a moment in time. To create an original and fun piece of artwork for her room, and maybe someday, HER little girl’s room. Here’s how it will work and some basics on pricing plus a link to my etsy shop where you’ll find the various listings!


You Color It Option: A B&W illustration in ink on Vellum finish Bristol illustration card stock for you and your little one to color yourselves. Its a work of art they can contribute to! And it’s economical too.

– 8×10 B&W = $95 /  9×12 B&W = $100  /  11×14 B&W = $105 / *custom sizes available upon request, just email me!

Digitally Colored Print Option: An original ink illustration, scanned and colored digitally (like LBB’s) then printed on archival, heavyweight art paper with genuine Epson Ultrachrome inks for long life .

– 8×10 Digital Color = $145 /  9×12 Digital Color = $150  /  11×14 Digital Color = $155 / *custom sizes available upon request, just email me!

Full Color “Original” Option: An ink illustration with mixed media color on Vellum finish Bristol illustration card stock. You get the original, signed artwork. An authentic artwork created just for you!

Sibling orders are eligible for an overall 15% discount. Convo me on etsy for a custom listing

i am also very open to custom orders on canvas or possibly 3 “looks” on smaller stock for a runway feel when framing. The sky’s the limit! Nothing makes me happier than creating truly one-of-a-kind artworks that have special meaning for the recipient.


Works in Progress – installment #2

Since i’ve shared this on twitter/flickr in the past few days, i know it won’t be a surprise to everyone, but this is my current work-in-progress. So here we go. Quite a bit of my design business (read; day job) is creating custom illustrations for individual clients. The rest is commercial desgin work, but that’s a story for another day ; ) The images below show my first 2 proofs for a client whose kids are having a birthday celebration at a local theater where the kids will be treated to a live stage performance. The final round will be to add color. i’ll then have these printed locally and deliver them with pretty matching colored envelopes!
