It’s barely March, but my spring fever is in full force these days. I keep under-dressing for work, only because I can’t stand the idea of another day in long sleeves and multiple layers again. And don’t even get me started on wearing snow boots every. single. day.
This winter-weary soul is dreaming of green and flowers. They say we’ll get back to that someday, but I’ll believe it when I see it.
Till then, if you need me, I’ll be pretending I live in this illustration by Genevieve Simms.
Exciting times over here in the studio– I’m just about ready to debut a few new 2015 puppet designs! Over the past month and a half I’ve been scheming (okay, actually, the scheming’s been going on for longer), sketching, sewing and refining some of my fave people to add to my repertoire of felt personalities. This year I thought it was important to focus on women, seeing as how my collection is sorely lacking in the boss lady department. I have a pair and a single design to debut in the next couple of weeks (and maybe one more if I can get the details just right). In the meantime, here are a few sneak peeks to get you excited.
Sketchbook pages I shared on Instagram a few weeks back.
Getting super organized with my fancy biz goals wall.
Working out expressions to get the details just right.
From a photoshoot a few days ago.
Stay tuned– all will be revealed very soon!
