Sarah Jane

My Little Lamb print

When I see illustrations of children, it reminds me of my old story books — the kind that I used to read when I was tucked into bed. I also wondered why my hair was brown instead of the golden haired kids that’s running about in them!

Sarah Jane, an artist from Utah has been doing a fine job bringing me back to memory lane with her simple drawings of girly girls and dancing elephants. Her shop stocks plenty of adorable prints in various sizes, along with stationery too.

June’s White Dandelions print — a special print for the month of June; and Sarah’s lovely gift wrapping option

She also maintains a blog where she writes about life with her husband and her two beautiful children.

Call for the the July PikaPackage Project!

I’ve sent out an email newsletter to those on the mailing list, and silly me forgot to blog about the call for contributions for the July PikaPackage Project!

If you’re an illustrator or and artist who has an online shop, you’re invited to join in on the fun! You can see what happened for our first PikaPackage Project, and also visit out flickr page for the list of previous jolly participants and their fantastic wares.

{You can email me or go on to this page with a contact form to reach me for further info.}

Bits and Pieces

Kyoto observations

Kyoto observations

I’ll be easing up on the posting, and will be relying on automatic postings for the next week as I try to soak in Kyoto as much as I can before I leave! :) I received a lot of emails, and although I might be a little late in responding, rest assured that I will be reading them all, and will get back to you as soon as I can.

Happy Memorial Day weekend to those who are celebrating!


Presto Bingo

Presto Bingo is the work of husband and wife team of Joyce Hesselberth and David Plunkert. Together, they also run an illustration studio named Spur Design where they’ve worked with clients from MTV Networks, The New Yorker, Time Magazine and many more.

They recently took some time to work on a more personal project — a line of fine art prints for kids’ rooms that features colorful animals, robots and aliens in print at their Presto Bingo shop, that I think would liven up a child’s room brilliantly.
