One of a Kind...

This movie is lovely and definitely one of a kind:I highly suggest you go see it. now. lol....=) It was awesome...really funny and sad and amusing all at the same time. So good! If you need a little dose of weird-in-a-good-way in your movie night, it's perfect. =)

The artist, Sonja Ahlers, that I linked yesterday - I finished her book and read her bio and she's from Vancouver...awesome!

I added a card I made a few weeks ago using Emma's Paperie goodies to the Etsy shop this morning:I still have tons in mind for the shop at various stages of design....and some things even ready to print, but there's just no time to get to it...soon, hopefully! And yes, it involves monsters...ha ha....Z and I were joking that if I ever start and animation/design company is should be called "I can draw cows and monsters"...lol....They are just what I doodle and most of the time, they just pop out of my pencil when I draw...lol. I added a few more drawings I found from my trip to France to my art blog last night, and they're cows and monsters, too...lol...Too funny....

Anyways, I've also been collaborating with a local artist on a new card venture - Green Banana Cards. Basically, a handful of local Vancouver artists draw designs, and then they are sold to small stores around the city for them to sell - $1 from every card is an environmental donation, and the cards are printed on recyclable material...it's a super-cool idea! So here's my first design for Green Banana; a Mother's Day card...it was super fun! I drew it by hand, scanned it, and then added commercial textures and color in Photoshop. =)
Anyways, I don't want to jinx anything, but I have work to do today...eek! =) And I was writing my schedule down last night and just noticed how crazy busy but artsy May will be for me....yay!! =) lol...guess I should get used to staying up til 2 Am...Oh, the artsy life...=) he he...happy day everyone! Thanks, as always, for your sweet comments!

Sounds hectic but lots of fun! I saw the previews for that movie when I watched Juno last night. I laughed so hard at the idea of the movie. I can imagine that it would be very weird... Love the cards, especially the mothers day card!

Your drawings are just unreal. i really do think you should create your own rubber stamps collection! DEFINITELY!!! I am signing up to be in the design team already *LOL*.

I love the owl card, and the one you designed. Gorgeous!

Such a cute card for Mother's Day! That sounds like such a neat venture and awesome that it benefits the environment!

Also, glad to hear that Lars and the Real Girl is good...wanted to see that when it came out, but it wasn't playing anywhere around here, so I'll have to rent it...

I didn't get to leave a comment from the previous blog, but I adore all of your new stuff you made for the Dozens and that little apple book you made....divine! I am about to seriously die to get that paper you made for the dozens kits and that fab stamp! I wish you would sell stuff like that in your etsy...you would make tons on the paper and stamps alone! I adore the little mother's day card, too! I always look forward to new stuff from you...you are creative in every aspect...so very inspiring!

xx, Amber
