Back in August, I left my really well paying job to be a full time stay at home mom. It’s been really fulfilling, but also very difficult, both emotionally and financially. We’re not sinking, yet, though, so I’ve been plugging away at illustration projects the last couple of weeks. Prior to that, I was constantly working to relocate out family halfway across the country and trying to help my husband find a new job.
So, I thought I’d come over and start sharing some of my recent work for anyone that’s still left on my followers list.
I started with a couple portraits, but then I started playing around with silly animal ideas. I had always imagined how difficult it would be for a giraffe to find a scarf long enough to keep it’s neck warm, so I finally sat down and drew the concept. Since then, I’ve been trying to find 1 to 2 new silly ideas to work on a week. It’s difficult to get much done with a toddler that just starts walking, but I have been managing to squeeze in an hour or two a day.
I’ve currently got 10 designs on over 200 different products for sale over on my Society6 page. I’ve also recently set up my illustration Patreon page and am currently offering handlettered, vinyl stickers for people that sign up to support me before March 5th, 2019.
Thank you so much for your continued support and understanding!

Welcome back and hope that everything will be better for you and family, also your posting on steemit. Luv that girrafe illustration .. pretty cool😉
I can imagine that it must be hard financially after you left a full time job but it also must be so rewarding to spend all the time with your child and raise them in the best possible way.
I'm glad to hear that you have found some time to do these 'silly' illustration and I can imagine that you could get a large audience here if you would share more of them. I do of course understand your time constrains..
I hope that the life will stabilize on your side and that it won't be that difficult going forward..
I love that idea with a giraffe! It even has an ear protection :D AMAZING!!
Thank you for sharing and I'm looking forward to your around more often :)
