My 100th item!

Today I added my design to my 100th item in my zazzle store! Yeah! It is time to celebrate.  This is my first milestone since I opened my store in July 3, 2012.  I learned about posting my designs on items like iPad sleeves and and kindle cases.  It is fun to design images in layers that can be mixed and matched in tee shirts or placemats.  My next milestone will be be when I have 1000 items in my store and that will take time. 

I feel as if I have entered an art boot camp since my days begin about 5:30 am to 6:00 am if I am feeling bushed.  I race each summer day against the heat.  I try to work with a naturally cold room and chilly computer.  The mornings are a cold 50 F in the desert, but they can soar to 100F the same day!  Lately, I began a few old school drawings in ink on paper.  I find blue bic pen layers nicely with colored pencils to create rich contrasting images.

What about books?  I am reading a few very interesting books and I will reveal them when the time comes.

Happy Creating and Writing!

  1. Hi Ann,

    Boy are you talented! Love the sketches, am I to assume that those items on display above are your works of art?

  2. Thank you, Yvonne! Yes, I was very busy taking photos, doing digital drawings as well as drawings on paper. I drew blue horses, green pegasus, red amaryllis. Thank you very much! :)
