It's (a)LIVE!!

TL:DR 
Yay!  The new site is up!! *happy dance~ happy dance*

If you know me at all, you know I've gone back and forth about changing anything on this site.  But I think it's come together nicely.  Squarespace is ever so helpful in making updates a breeze.  I'm sure it doesn't look like much has changed, but I've toiled over quite a few things.  And if you notice in the upper navigation... There is an additional link to my first online store! *extra happy dance!*

I've set up shop on SOCIETY6!!!

I've decided to make my Alice prints open edition and they're now available on Society6!!!  I'll be uploading more pieces slowly but surely, but I wanted to make sure it was up and running to coincide with version 2.0 of heyitsgrace.com!  I will be adding a couple of my July Jewels pieces, and any suggestions would be fab!  I always appreciate your feedback and would love to make my art available as prints and eventually as other goods as well.  

Ahh... I feel renewed and re-energized!  I'm feeling good about August you guys... And the rest of the year's looking mighty shiny too!   

In other news... I will be setting up shop at DESIGNER*CON this November! 

My awesomesauce friend Diana and I will be sharing a booth at Designer*Con!  It will be held on November 21 - 22 at the Pasadena Convention Center!!  Stay tuned for a Facebook invite and some promo pieces coming soon!!!  

ch-ch-ch-changes!

Hello lovely internet people!  I know the blog has been quiet for a long time... But there are some (big?!) changes coming soon!  

July has been an amazing month full of changes for me, and I'm so excited to be able to share with you all what's in store... (hint... cough... hint...)  

If you're following me on Instagram, I'm sure I've bombarded you with my daily drawings.  But hopefully you're enjoying them even just a bit. ;)  Changes to the site are also underway.  I've consolidated a few things, added a few things, spruced up the logo, and hopefully the updated work will speak for itself.  

I'm figuring out how to streamline my posting and that should happen in the next few weeks...

There is also a big(-ish) announcement coming soon!  Fun things are percolating, and I'm as giddy as can be.  

A little bonus post... I submitted this fanart piece to the Inside Out Tumblr...  And while it didn't make the cut, I thought it was pretty darn cute.

Friday Nights...

Friday nights are made for doodles.  Here's a quick 10 minute sketch in Photoshop using this fan-freakin-tastic custom brush by Marco Caradonna.

I finally made the leap and upgraded to Adobe Creative Cloud... And it's my preciousssssss (Gollum voice).  Funny how I just can't live without Adobe anything on my OS.  Creative Cloud is pretty friggin' great.  And I can't wait to learn more about the different software and features. 

I'm in design-nerd heaven~

Quickie Post...

The best kind of Monday... is a holiday Monday. ;)

Just a quickie post to say that I've (finally) added my Firefly pieces to the art section of my site.  I've been itching to do some spring cleaning and move things around, so keep an eye out for those changes.

In other news...  I'll be participating in another group show at A Little Known Shop in October!! :) Stay tuned for details!  

My dog is SOOO EXCITED!!

Such Excite! Very Art!

I love food...

This post is brought to you by the letter R.  Because it's full of random rambling and ridiculousness.  


If you happen to see my instagram feed...  Well, let's just say that "feed" is an appropriate term.  

One of my goals for 2013 was to cook more, and I'm carrying that over to 2014!  I've been on a "food that looks like other food" kick lately.  And I've been pleasantly surprised by the results.

Pinterest is seriously the greatest invention and my biggest weakness.  It's probably the first and last thing I look at in a day.  And by the sheer number of pins I've dedicated to my food boards, you can obviously see where my priorities lie.  Hahaha...

I will most likely not be creating each recipe that I have pinned (there's close to 800 combined), but it's a lot of fun to try new recipes and taste new things.
