On the airplane home to Orlando, i challenged myself to draw my 'first' collection that i would hopefully consider submitting to get licensed. Although the collection didn't include this piece above, i LOVED it.
While coloring it, i added special techniques I've never really used on Photoshop and i love it!
so cute. :)

I was perusing Twitter earlier this week and fell upon this amazing quote tweeted by Erica Domesek from "Ps I Made This".
Immediately i had to draw this and got to work. And TaDa! i LOVE it!
It's simple and beautiful, just like the statement. :D

Today's doodle was inspired by a REALLY stellar call from Michelle of "When I Grow Up" and Kate Spencer.
I talked about joining Michelle's "Club House" in my Cherry Runway blog a week or so ago. :)
This call was so inspiring that i started a whole doodle series based on the call. Each piece is OOAK on a ACEO card and will hopefully be up [with prints] on my Nightly Doodle Etsy shop!

Wanting things to be done already.
Messing up because I'm not patient.
It causes me HEAPS of anxiety. :(
This doodle was actually made during one of my anxiety moments.
Today... i WILL indeed try my BEST to do things slow.er. And, I hope my doodle inspires you to do the same!

I know i didn't say it on the blog, but I've been in Florida for about a week and a half so far... I've wanted to blog but just couldn't. I left at 5am last one week ago from today, and had many things to take care of!
I came to Orlando to prep my home... get rid of everything and three days later, it's officially on the market. [anyone need a condo??]
I was REALLY anxious to come here. I won't get into it the complications of it, but i WILL tell you it was by far, one of the most growing experiences. I learned so much about myself and my lack of celebrating how much I've grown!
I had great conversations with shop owners that carry my work and have had REVELATIONS about how far Nightly Doodles have come!
I enjoyed looking through new prints i was picking up. It helped me realize how much BETTER I've gotten with my art.
I picked up the FIRST ever greeting cards i made at two shops. I looked at it and said 'omgosh, i actually thought this was good!' and the shop owner said something along the lines of 'Well, at the time it was! Now you've just come farther."
..by FAR the BEST answer and a big DUH JEN!
^ the first batch of 'finished' nightly doodles that were ever printed!! ^
I under celebrate because i think i should be father along in my art journey when in reality, I'm EXACTLY where i should be.
I mean really... ^look^ how far I've come!
So i'll be one of the LAST to say it... Welcome 2013. I'm very very excited for you.
Happy 2013 friends..

I've been wanting to participate in Illustration Friday for SOOOO long and haven't because i didn't think i was good enough. And although, I'm not as 'skilled' as many of the amazing folks involved with IF, i'm STILL going to submit this one! So excited!
Boy even drew one too! Look!! :)
Happy Humpday friends!
Happy New Years friends!
It's funny, when i started posting these doodles the last four days i didn't do it any particular order, mostly just which doodles i finished first.
But this one is PERFECT for the first day of the year. This year i WILL let myself be happy. And i hope you will too!
Tomorrow on the Cherry Runway blog, you can see the article that inspired the last four days of doodles.
Have a gorgeous 1st day of January friends!
