Art and a print shop

Some new art for you guys: First off, the fifth of my Historical Disney Princesses:

I went with the mid 1860's for Cinderella's dress, the transitory period where the cage crinoline takes on a more elliptical shape and moves towards the back. Not that it accounts for Lady Tremaine's sweet 1890's getup, but it's also not unheard of to see it worn alongside Anastasia and Drizella's early bustle dresses. It's also worth noting that it was made by a fairy godmother, so it make sense that her tastes would be a little behind the times.

Not to mention background characters, who seem pretty firmly planted in the middle of the century:

I couldn't settle on a visual motif for the details in this one- shoes, pumpkins, mice- so I just gave her some stripes and gothic lace to make up for it. OH ALSO I drew her losing her right shoe instead of her left and only recently realized it. Whoops.

...Aaaand my submission for the upcoming Girls Drawin' Girls book:

we've got a plant theme this time around so I, a fan of conifers, grabbed the Douglas Fir.

I absolutely adore the National Park Service- Bryce Canyon specifically- so this project rapidly became an excuse to draw park rangers and the southwest. The choice to do it in the style of the inimitable WPA posters was an easy one- they're still some of the most compelling advertisements for the parks.

And I finally set up a print shop!

I know it can be a chore to fuss around with e-mail when placing a prints order, so I went ahead and set up a Big Cartel store. Right now it just has some of the basic prints people are interested in (including all of the Princesses) and a simple option to order any art that isn’t listed in the shop.

Let me know if you guys have any suggestions- I’ll probably be adjusting and adding items over the next week, so feedback is appreciated. :)
