Behind the Art: Bear Wears a Tiny Sweater



Bear Wears a Tiny Sweater came to me a few years ago when I imagined how funny (and cute) it would be to see a bear that shoved his body into a Nordic sweater that he found laying around in the forest after a skier lost it. It ended up being too small (of course), and he is not too impressed with how it feels (not only is it the wrong size, but it's also quite itchy). I wouldn't want to get too close to him while he's struggling to get out of it.

My artwork often comes from a place of silly imagination and "what if" situations. More can be found here and here in the shop. You'll see what I mean...

If you have any questions, or would like to know the story behind any of the other art prints (or cards), don't hesitate to send me and email or a message through my shop.

What We Love: Christmas Edition 2018



This "ugly" (because it's really not that ugly) Christmas sweater, that I made myself at the Void Gallery Ugly Christmas Sweater Party using their screen-printing equipment after a quick tutorial, has been a cozy staple for staying warm while watching Christmas movies. It was so much fun and made me interested in exploring the medium more.



Christmas Makes Me Cry from Kacey Musgraves is such a wonderfully simple song, and her voice is absolutely beautiful. I know that a lot of us have moments during the holiday season when we think about the people we love that are no longer with us. This song is one where I'm always able to reflect on the years past, and I love songs like that.



This Christmas Cardi from Heather Buchanan is absolutely amazing, and one of the cards that I snapped up from her earlier in the season. Her artwork and puns are on point and make me laugh so hard!
