Sneak Peek - Kid Icarus Collaboration

So here is a quick sneak peek at the project i have been hinting at for the last while.  I have been working with Kid Icarus, an amazing Toronto based shop that deals and creates quality handmade goods, to create a line of six greeting cards from some of my illustrations that developed out of all my journal work.  The cards will be available via Kid Icarus, and I think a couple may even be on display at their booth this weekend at the Bloorcourt Arts and Craft Festival! I am so excited about the cards, it's totally awesome to see them coming together and to see my woodland illustrations finding a life somewhere outside my sketch book. I can wait to share all six designs, but until then check out more of the sneak peek shots here!

Back from Algonquin

Kye and I took off for a quick trip up to Algonquin this weekend. We did our first ever portaging trip.  We covered four lakes all together and camped on two different camp sites.  It was out of this world beautiful! Photos to follow soon.  Now it's back to work and city life.  I am working on oodles of letters to send out, some special baby projects for friends and hopefully some greeting cards! Stay tuned...also I can't wait to share some of the beautiful envelopes that have graced my mail box this week!
