It’s official friends: I’m done with the Christmas collection! I wanted to be done by October 1st, and I’m very happy to have been able to stay on schedule. It is so satisfying when this happens!
I will be releasing a few Christmas products every day for the next week or so, so keep your eyes open for that!
Here’s a sneak peak of my cheerful nature journal spread! I loved painting the rabbit so much! I’m happy with how fluffy and soft it looks. You’ll have to wait a few more days to bring it home, but it’s coming very soon to my shop!
Now that I’m done working on Christmas paintings, I want to try something a bit different and move to bigger formats. I’m still in the planning stages, but it’s exciting to have some time to experiment and play outside of my comfort zone.
Outside of the Atelier, Fall has definitively started to take a hold on things. It’s been wonderful to put on my sweaters and cozy up. I made some apple juice with part of our apple bounty I told you about last week, and it’s amazingly delicious!
Wishing you a great week!
This week, I’m not sharing a book, but an illustrator with you. Mateusz Urbanowicz is an amazing artist based in Japan who paints incredible scenery. He also creates graphic novels, books, and stunning watercolour paintings. I invite you to explore his website and gallery.
I really enjoy watching his process videos. It’s so interesting the way he uses digital tools to plan analog paintings. It’s very clever!
I’ve started to add some special items for the Xmas season. I know it’s still very far away, but as shipping has been a bit unpredictable, I prefer to put everything up ahead of time.
First off, here are some lovely zippered pouches. These are perfect for everything: toiletries, books, chocolate, colouring pencils, and all your other treasures! I kept one for myself, and I use it to carry my sketchbook and favourite drawing tools. I can also slip in my phone and keys and leave the house in style! These are made in Montreal and, yes, it is vegan leather.
A small treat…
How intriguing and fascinating!
