Although I really love making patterns with abstract or geometric designs, and I DO love me my florals, I also am pretty excited to draw adorable critters. This fellow came to me yesterday morning while I was having my tea! He’s part of a bigger collection of forest dwellers, all of whom I thoroughly enjoyed creating. I envision these dudes on PJ’s or as endpapers for a woodsy, magical fairytale book. They would also be pretty sweet as wallpaper in a nursery, with matching bedding of course! They are having their debut at Surtex in NYC two weeks from now and the excitement is palpable in my studio these days. My main challenges at the moment are: what to wear, and how to pack the fabric for my booth. I will figure it out soon though– it’s on my Fearless List of Things to DO fearlessly this week.. wish me luck!
