Sugary


"Have you ever heard of the Sugar-Plum Tree? 'Tis a marvel of great renown! It blooms on the shore of the Lollipop Sea;in the garden of Shut-Eye Town"

She is just so cute and adorable and I love her in this candy land production! I am always always so taken with your illustrations. They are bright and cheery and just so very tasty to my eyes. It's retro chic!!!! REALLY! I want to know if and when you plan to do a book with all of your illustrations in it? Or at least tell me that you are working on book of sorts? A children's book, a cook book with your illustrations, something. Anything? Can I convince you to open up an ETSY store? I know I'm pushing it! When I am finished with these two projects I have on my desk this week, I would love to do a write up on you an interview if you will, and post some of your illustrations or maybe processes of how you create. Let me know your thoughts . You are just total inspiration to me.
