Page(s) of the Day: New Sketchbook Edition!

I got a brand spanking new sketchbook, and let me tell you it's amazing!
The paper is official watercolor paper, and it's beautiful to work with!
I could write a long time about my art paper preferences, so I'm gunna' cut my self off right about here...

The first page:
 I though it's time you got to know my hair...
 My illustration of a certain Caleb Blanchet!

What I've been up to...

So...It's been a while...but not too long:)
School just started for me and I'm still getting used to fitting in art and blog things in with my school schedule.
I also keep drawing things and then not liking them enough to do a whole blog post on it, so here is a montage of my most recent miscellaneous projects.  
I've also started posting on my instagram!

Why my Doodles Left: A Short Film

A lot of you who know me know that I've been working on an animated short film for the "What's your Nickspiration" contest (put on my Nickelodeon, quite obviously) 
It took way too long, but I'm really glad it's finished, if not perfect.
I improved so much as an artist and an animator and that's invaluable to me:)

I haven't quite figured out how to put it on blogger whilst maintaining quality, so here's the youtube link.

Also, a giant thank you to Caleb and Matthew Blanchet! 
Caleb, for letting me use his epic microphone, Matthew for being the voice of Rodger, and the both of them for being generally awesome:)

A Few More Bloggers....

 I have just a few more bloggers to introduce you to....
The first,

I've always known her as Mrs. Blanchet, so it just seems too weird to call her by her first name;) 
I know her from my church, and was entirely thrilled when she asked me to illustrate her!
She has a beautiful blog chronicling her family life and homeschooling adventures! I hope you all check it out:)

 And the Second...

She has an awesome blog full of fun miscellany:)
I drew this one in a bit of a different style than the others, but I thought it was pretty cute!

If you want me to illustrate you for your blog just shoot me an email at

More Blogger Fan-art! Life's too Short not to Wear Red Shoes

Another one of best bloggers out there is Susannah Hope from Life's too Short not to Wear Red Shoes. (Epic name, I know.)
Her blog has two mascots.
Doughnuts and rainbows. 
Can you think of any two happier objects?
I can't, let me know if you do.

She's an amazing wedding photographer, and one of my favorite blog posts of all time of her rainbow themed wedding. You should check it out here

She hasn't posted in a while, so I don't know if she's just taking a break or what, but I'm just working my way through the archives:)

(P.S. thank you to my amazing friend Hannah Blanchet (check out her blog) for telling me about it!)
(P.P.S. if you want me to illustrate you for your blog, please shoot me an email! I would be thrilled to meet you!)
