Valentine's Day

Here's a card I made for my grandma for Valentine's Day. I love making her stuff because she always is so happy and amazed. She just really seems to enjoy a good homemade card....at least I think so anyway.

Around the World

Happy February!
Here's the latest project I have been working on, yet another illustration on wood! This illustration uses two pieces of wood. The girl was drawn out on a very thin piece of birch, about 1/8" thick and then very dangerously cut out with an X-acto knife and scissors depending on the angle. It was quite tedious and I was a little scared of the tip of blade breaking and hitting me in the eye! Why I needed to make her on wood and not paper I don't know but I do happen to think it looks better then it would on paper. I kind of like this approach and may try it out again until I get injured.

Mr. Fox

This one I have been working on for a few weeks. It's a bit tricky to have a really good idea and then you go to make it 3D and it doesn't quite sew up the way you want it to. That's why the first toy is always a prototype but it really looks like there is no need for improvement. I am really happy with this fox, it might be my most favorite Lizling to date! Now that I have the design for the fox done I have plans to do an all white lady fox next!
