Whimsical Dreams' art for friends and little dragons

Huntington, Vermont 17 Sales On Etsy since 2008

Announcement   Happy summer! This shop is all about little dragons, fae, and mice (mostly) for you to print and color, and the occasional fuzzy felted owl. Come in and meet them! I'm trying a new thing: trinkets and treasures! Keychains, zipper pulls, little charms and wee things! I'm making them at home (like all of Etsy *used* to be); we'll see what works. I hope you like them.

I'm still working on the "Tiny Tin" series of drawings. (Up in the high 30s of a planned 52-55). I'm grateful for my littlerKid for being my color tester as I do the thing of transforming various paper sketches to downloadable file. My patrons get first chance at these (you could be one!); as I have time, some appear here as well. If you see something you like on my Instagram (I'm metasilk there) or Patreon (metasilk there too!) that you want listed here for your friends to buy, tell me!

Plans for the future: a collection! Either as bundled print-and-colored items or a coloring book (?!? Now I feel nervous...)

I am making charms for zipper polls or backpack charms or pendants! I’m using shrink paper (really fun!) and starting with my dragons. Check out my shop for more, or send me an email with a request. Happy summer everyone!
It’s somewhat risky to draw during the kidthing’s swim practice! Thank goodness for micron pens and pencils.
I couldn’t send this without tagging an item - sorry I don’t have new items to share! What would you like to see? I’m open to suggestions!

New in my shop: a coloring page (PDF) & a digistamp (both JPG & PNG) of a daydreaming steampunk mouse! Buy, download, print, and - best part - color!
I tried trimming a student-grade watercolor paper to run through my inkjet printer, and painting. Fun!

About

Whimsical dreams that are inadvertent and irrepressible.

I started the shop as an experiment and it's still rather that. As illustrations keep leaking out of my fingers, despite however busy I get, I'm looking for ways to share them. What will work? Tiny prints? Wee crafted things? Commissions? Originals? Let's find out!

I'd love to earn enough from my art to send my kids to college and then travel the world. So far, not yet... but your enthusiasm does supply me with more coffee and more paint! So thank you!

P.S. On names: Studio Metasilk is the tree; all of my work grows under this name. Whimsical Dreams is one of the branches. On Etsy, I couldn't use that branch name as it had already been taken. However, you may find my art elsewhere on the web under the names metasilk (that's me!), whimsical dreams (dragon and fairy stuff, mostly), storm women dancing (what it says it is), goblin dreams (yes, really!), and critters lugging stuff around (aka critters with gear). All this make me think Winne-the-Pooh had it right, living under just one name ,"Sanders"! If I were to do it again... well, it's me, I'd probably still have a lot of branches with silly names. Guess I'm like that!

    Apparently, the doodling amuses people besides myself. I really tried to do other things--from astrophysics to zoology, with serious stops in environmental education and web design. I still do! But doing artstuff is way fun. So here it is.
