Drawing A Day #179: Monkey on your back

July 19th, 2011

Ever have the feeling that something’s weighing you down? … kinda like there’s a Monkey on your back:

Monkey on your backI actually had a pretty awesome time in Ottawa last week, visiting with little nephew Ryan, Em and my Mom … couldn’t have asked for a better visit. All I can say is: Ryan, you are one cutie ptootie!

Hope everyone’s been doing well …

Feature Friday Donation #46: Midsummer journal & hair elastic set by thunderpeep designs

July 8th, 2011

Michelle of thunderpeep designs is another local talent I met through the etsy group T.E.S.T. and is our Feature Friday artist this week. She was kind enough to reach out and donate this cool Midsummer journal and hair elastic set:

Thunderpeep designs started as a hobby because Michelle still loves sending and receiving letters in her regular old mailbox (I totally agree – fun mail is a great thing). Being a designer who loves the old skool art of hand lettering, she started making her own cards with goofy sayings for all her friends. This eventually included her other passion: Scandinavian-inspired illustration and textile design. Michelle’s little company is now evolving and includes all sorts of fun stationary goods, with quirky sayings, nature-inspired drawings and her own fabric creations.

You can see more of Michelle’s fun and original work and find out what else she’s up to:

Thanks again for your donation Michelle, and glad we got to grab some lunch when we met up!


The D.A.D. Project will be on vacation next week but stay posted for our next drawing coming at you the week of July 18th … take care in the meantime! Hope everyone has a great weekend :)
