Drawing A Day #189: Tiptoe through the tulips

September 1st, 2011

Today’s D.A.D. is for anyone who’s light on their feet (or not so much, like myself) but still enjoys dancing like no one’s watching … I bring you Tiptoe through the tulips:

Connie is the second member from the etsy group, T.E.S.T., to make a donation to The D.A.D. Project (yay, team!) and we are more than grateful for this thoughtful gesture. She is behind Twine Birds, a small but growing handmade polymer clay jewelry and accessories business focusing on miniature foods and other attractive objects. Having been crafting from a young age as well as studying visual arts and environmental studies in university, Connie is very comfortable crafting clay items from her home in the GTA area.

Taking up this medium in 2008 to fulfill her need to work with clay, Connie has been creating small miniatures and participating in craft shows and events. Taking the time between graduation and fall, when she goes back to university to study Urban Planning, Connie aims to spend the summer working on new designs, going to more craft shows as well as volunteering.

Drawing A Day #130: I see a pattern

March 8th, 2011

I recently read that there’s a chameleon up for adoption at a local animal shelter. Today’s D.A.D., I see a pattern, is dedicated to the little guy … here’s hoping he finds a good home soon:

I See a Pattern
I’ve always been a fan of these crazy coloured lizards with their cockeyed stares and mitten hands.

Many thanks to puikeprent who included our Whale of a tail in their Sky Blue, Deep Sea etsy treasury:
