I don't know about you, but I'm so ready for warmer days. Now that March has rolled in (already??), I think it's time Winter gave up its stronghold and let Spring do her thing. I'm looking forward to picnics in the park and sitting under a tree to sketch out new ideas. I love nature and constantly find myself doodling inspirations I've gathered from my walks and travels, but I'm also trying to push myself to play with new styles and incorporate elements like calligraphy, different forms of illustration and sizes (I'm always drawn to the super tiny!). While it's good to hone a style that will make your brand cohesive and recognizable, I also think you shouldn't be afraid to explore outside of your boundaries - even if it's just for play. Who knows? You might find yourself incorporating the things you've discovered into your work for a beautiful melding of various styles that is all your own.

Are you on Instagram? Then follow me there for sneak peeks at upcoming products and see what I've been working on these days. There's lots in store for the coming months and I can't wait to finally show them to you!
