illustration friday~twirl

here is a piece i am currently in the process of painting. it is part one of a custom order i am working on for a trio of really cute sisters. this one being born on Christmas day...and really into ballet (hence the whole nutcracker theme from the mouse to the red and white to the "waltz of the flowers"). i thought it fit right in with this week's theme of 'twirl' :)

attached below is the second part of this order for a set of crazy about dogs, the other crazy about cats! ahhh....sisterhood....;)

barrington and bella bears...also known as 'the cub-kins'!
i am super super excited to be a part of this little 'venture' with a great company called Vintage Courtiere based out of florida
i have designed a line called 'cub-kins' which consist of a brother and sister bear named barrington and bella. further on, there might be other 'kin' added to this line. but for now, i thought these 2 cuties were a good start.
they will be appliques which will be sewn onto anything from onesies to t shirts to dresses to towels but the amazing jodee harder, who runs Vintage Courtiere.
i am so psyched to see my designs on fabric for the first time ever!!!
