Odette, after a long haul

I finally finished this piece of art, thank god! It took me a rather long time, from sketch to fully digitally colored piece. Whew!

This print is available for purchase at:

Art vs Craft

I've been thinking a lot about how to get more business on my etsy. I just saw an article about a woman who started her shop the same time as me but has gotten 7x more sales! Her artwork is not particularly complex, but it is very cute, all in one style, and all for one niche market (weddings) whereas I do sketches, artwork, crochet, needlwork and my shop is a mishmosh. I know this is handicapping my ability to have a 'brand' develop. Considering starting a new shop. Puzzle.

On another note, this is a scanned and cleaned up image I did for my husband a while ago with staedtler writing markers!

Whew it's been a long time since I posted!!! I've gone through a whirlwind of interviews around the country and am now awaiting my fate which will be handed down by the medical match.

I've been thinking a lot of inspirational characters to girls that are also light and humorous. Fairy tales have been floating in my head for a while now and I finally did my first; the frog prince! More to come.. I hope

I also did the first of what I hope will be a line of ethnic princesses. They remind me a bit of classical drawings of tribes and ethnicities and would look great in a grouping on the wall.
