Happy Inktober! 🦇

This month I decided to try something new and participate in the Inktober drawing prompts! I figured it would be a good time to practice drawing with procreate since I'm such a geek for fall themed stuff 🤓 and I figured this would help me get motivated to practice more.

Eco-Friendly Packaging

behind the scenes

Eco-Friendly Packaging

One thing that's so important to us is being as eco-friendly as we can in our business, and we're always looking for where we can make improvements in our materials and process. We've been looking for a good eco-friendly mailer for some time and we finally found a good one that we'll be switching to! Our new kraft mailer that we'll soon begin shipping all our enamel pins and buttons with is made from 100% eco friendly recycled materials and is fully recyclable as well.  Our cards are eco friendly, too! They're now printed with organic soy inks and printed on FSC certified/recycled stock,...

Shop Update: New Pun Cards ✏️

Our latest shop update is all about cards!  We've been loving houseplants so we've got a new happy monstera leaf friendship card in the shop. I don't have a monstera plant just yet, but I want one! I always swear I won't buy a new plant everytime I head to the nursery since I have so many, but then I usually can't help it and end up taking home a new plant... whoops!! Who's with me on that one? We've also got a new churro birthday card in, I really enjoyed drawing these happy churros. We always love getting the churro at Disneyland, and while...

Rare Corpse Flower!

Rare Corpse Flower!

We recently got a chance to visit the rare corpse flower at CSULB in Long Beach! If you haven't heard about this giant flower, it only blooms once every 7-15 years, and then when it blooms it only stays open for about a day. Sometimes even less!  And.. it stinks! It smells awful, plus we were there on a cold day and we were told it smells much worse when it's warm out. I think we lucked out a little bit on that. Here's a few pics of it below, and make sure you're following us on Instagram for more adventures!...

My Drawing Process

behind the scenes

My Drawing Process

 My art process actually varies quite a lot, and a lot of the time I don't start with a sketch at all and just work straight in Illustrator. In this case though, I had this idea while sketching up some new ideas for CatCon, so I started with this little sketch.  I was too lazy to use my scanner (yep) so I just took a photo of it with my phone instead and then started drawing over it in Illustrator. I generally use a lot of circles and basic shapes first, then combine them and edit them with the pathfinder and pen...

Thank you for 5 Years in Business, And a Thank You Sale!

You guys, it's our Etsyversary today!We started this shop 5 years ago today, as a tiny side gig for my day job. It's grown so much since then, and it's now my full time job! Running a business has been harder than I thought in a lot of ways, since as business owners we have to wear so many hats (marketer, illustrator, customer service, bookkeeping, etc) so I've learned a ton, but I wouldn't have it any other way. I love making new products and sending them out into the world, and I love being my own boss. We also just...

Thailand Vacation ✈️🗺🌃

We're recently back from a 3 week trip in Thailand and it was amazing! We ate lots of delicious Thai food, checked out tons of temples, visited beaches, night markets, hikes, and went on almost every method of transportation there was (trains, planes, boats, motorcycle sidecars, taxis, baht buses, bikes, tuk tuks...)  We spent time in Bangkok, Pattaya, Kanchanaburi, Chiang Mai and Chiang Rai and had a great time in each one. Here's a few pics from our trip! Bangkok, Thailand   Wat Pho Temple, Bangkok   Wat Pho Temple, Bangkok   Restaurant in Bangkok   Muang Boran   Muang Boran  ...
