Look what came in the mail! I recently joined Nuvango (formerly GelaSkins) and their kind staff sent me a collection of products printed with my art. The quality is great and the colors are glowing (seriously, my biggest pet peeve as an illustrator is seeing my vibrant inks dulled in a cheap reproduction. These are SPARKLING). Besides prints and canvases, they do skins, cards, and cases. Check them out!

I’ve started dabbling in Twitter. On the plus side, lots of updates from Neil Gaiman. On the downside, their picture handling could use some work. Still, if you want to read my thoughts on books, tea, and art, you can find me @DanaDraws.

Think Nice Thoughts
This is my first experiment at using pressed flowers in artwork. First lesson learned: daisies will shed flower seeds all over your nice clean scanner.

Sketches from the family album. My childhood photos are a sobering reminder that I’ve had messy hair ever since I had hair at all. My mom’s whole arsenal of headbands, elastics, ribbons, clips, and barrettes couldn’t keep it down.
