Hiding in my Imaginative World

Heey everyone!

Just a quick note to say that I'm still around!! Yes, I'm still here, only I'm hiding behind the curtain that leads to my imaginative world hehe.

But if you're wondering what I've been up to, well I've been illustrating my butt off. Seriously. And once I'm in my own world, time seems to stop there, but unfortunately it continues in the real world. But I'm happy to say that a bunch of illustrations are finished and mugs have been ordered! I'm really excited to hear what the clients think of them ^_^.

There's still some time left if you want to have something illustrated before the holidays. Do let me know this week if you're still thinking about it. Especially if it's a mug, because that takes more time.

This little lady is preparing for the holidays. 
I already told her that she still has some time, but she has to find the perfect outfit...

Other important news that I forgot to share with you all! I'm an official illustrator since my birthday! Yes, nothing more to add to this, except that I'm super excited. It's not easy though, I have so much to go through to make sure I got the business side all set up, but I'm getting there.

Next to working on commissions, I have been working on my own Christmas designs as well and I will show you these in my next post! Which shall be somewhere this week...I hope.

Oh before I go: a quick drawing I did for my little sister a while back:
Take care and till next post which shall be filled with illustrations. Hope everyone is well & HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!
