A new take on last year’s coffee cat poster art.
Visit my Redbubble artist shop to purchase this design as a women’s chiffon top, coffee mug or other gift item.
This year, I participated in the Inktober ink drawing challenge.
Inktober was created by Jake Parker in 2009 as a challenge to improve his inking skills and develop positive drawing habits.

Stickers are a fun, inexpensive way to dress up your notebook or laptop with a bit of my artwork. My Redbubble shop offers high-quality vinyl stickers in four sizes ranging from 3×3 inch to 14×14 inch. Here’s a photo of my laptop decorated with small (approx. 3×3 inch) stickers—tiny dog added for scale. 😉
Each purchase boosts my design’s search ranking within Redbubble and searches are the primary way that customers find my artwork. I’m trying to get my art seen by more customers during the fall holiday buying season, so if you’ve considered purchasing my designs, now is the perfect time to do it! Right now, buy any 4 stickers and get 25% off. Buy any 10 and get 50% off.

Digital scan adjusted and edited in Photoshop. Color applied in Illustrator.
When we first see a drawing, we might imagine a flash of inspiration leading straight to the finished artwork. Many times that’s what happens, but not always.
