How much sweeter could this (newly listed) black & white PitBull pup be with the curious buzzing bee in earshot?!
Wrapping these sweet Cavalier Spaniel notepads in this fun tissue paper and adding the matching pup sticker for every customer’s order just makes me happy. I know it’ll bring a smile when they open their package. blush

Little Shop of Humor

Hi!

Thanks so much for stopping by! The fact that you're here tells me that we have something in common — an attraction for specialized gifts with a sassy twist of fun.

For those who are looking for that one of a kind item when looking for a special fit for someone, you’re in the right place. Coming up with illustrations for the masses has never been my interest. You want something a little different that touches your heart, makes you chuckle, and shows your thoughtfulness when choosing a gift. That’s what my work is all about!

Much of what you see originates from artwork that I've created for special people in my life. Their heartfelt, typically laugh-out-loud reactions encouraged me to share my work with you.

I’m pretty much a self taught artist, but several years ago I was honored to take an in-home animation class taught by one of the great Warner’s Bros animators, Ben Washam. Through his weekly classes I learned about bringing images to life with a twist of humor. It was the best training I could have had.

As I begin a project I always ask myself what some typical traits of the characters involved might be... “What thought goes through a teacher's mind right before the morning bell?", or “What is it that golfers need to work on the most while trying to make that difficult shot?" “What is it that a particular breed of dog is known for?” With the Comedic Cats Collection it was “How can I illustrate a specific trait of a person using the scenario of a cat?” And so it goes for everything I draw.

When you’re looking for a gift that tickles your heart — for yourself or for someone else, there’s no question that joy comes from feeling special, which is how you or your loved one will feel the moment they open the package!

Reasonably priced and made with only the best quality materials.
