The Shop: Best Wishes Warmest Regards

October 26, 2021

This is honestly the most exciting news for me to share: earlier this year I was approached by the publishing director for 
Black Dog & Leventhal Publishers. She informed me that they were collaborating with the producers of Schitt's Creek to create a coffee table book in celebration of the show's six seasons. She went on to tell me that they wanted to include some fan and wanted to include my Simply the Best drawing in the book.

I was floored. Never in my wildest dreams did I ever think that something like this would happen, and it was such an honour to be asked to be a part of this beautiful book. Eugene Levy and Dan Levy, Black Dog & Leventhal Publishers, and Hachett Book Group pulled everything together so wonderfully.

The cherry on top of it all was a personal note from Dan Levy written in the front of the copy that was sent to me. It feels so crazy and amazing to think that people around the world are going to see my artwork when they open this book.

Dan Levy did an interview with Variety that talks about bringing fans into the collaboration, and the vibe that he wanted for the book.


Behind the Art: Happy Birthday Bird

October 16, 2021

This cute little card is one of the first birthday cards that I designed for the shop. It comes from a pair of drawings that I made as a set for the shop when it was originally opened. The image on this card is the first print, and the second print was the bird after it had eaten the cupcake and was incredibly full! 

Eventually I just decided to make it into a card, as some of the other prints have done in the past (like the Ivan print, this heart print and the Simply the Best artwork).


Shop Update: Christmas Cards 2021

October 12, 2021


The 2021 Christmas cards that I have been designing since the end of last Christmas (inspiration usually strikes when you need it the least) are now available in the shop

Why are the cards being listed soooo far ahead of the actual season? A lot of small online shops like to get holiday items ready to go so that they can be shipped out in time for them to reach everyone before the big day(s), which means that many of us are making them available before other holidays and celebrations have even begun.

Compared to the simplicity of our other Christmas cards, these four cards are by far the busiest cards that I have designed in the 11 years the shop has been open. You can find Chillin With My Snowmies, Christmas Wonderland, Happiest Christmas, and Bring On The Holidays in the shop along with all of the other Christmas cards.
