Will you be my Valentine?

Happy February! Hope you’re having a great start of the new year so far 🙂

This year, I’m continuing to focus on making products (greeting cards, art prints, and calendars), and I look forward to sharing  more behind the scenes look and new releases with you 🙂

Since Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, I wanted to show you some of the love cards I’ve got in my shop today!

Ta da! Cute, yes??

I’m particularly happy with this I Love You More Thanbrush lettering card I created recently!

This design was born out of a doodle I made in my sketchbook one day. I was simply asking my fans on Instagram what they would say to their significant other if they were to tell them “I love you more than ____.”

I got a great response on that post and actually really liked the doodle lettering for it, so I turned it into a new greeting card design 🙂

(BTW, I gave it to my husband on our 10-year meeting anniversary a couple of weeks ago, and I said “I love you more than sweet potato fries!” :D)

When I design my greeting cards, I ask myself these two important questions:

1. Is this me? 

I want to make sure my art reflects my style and voice – simple, whimsical, and has the childlike charm. Sometimes I draw something photorealistic (most likely by accident!) and it feels so unfitting to everything else I do, so I typically don’t share them even if they look good!

2. Does this have a happy vibe?

I want to make you happy with my art. Period. So I keep my imagery light and joyful. I might make dark and sad art as a personal exploration, but they don’t typically become my products.

Do you like my sweet love greeting cards? Explore your options in my shop today!

p.s. I ship pretty quickly (usually within 1-2 days), so you still got time before the Valentine’s Day 🙂

Talk soon,
