Happy Sunday Gnomedays again, everyone ❤

Having fun with loose colored pencil drawings lately, apparently. Also, dude Gnome this time in honor of Father’s Day. Still remarkably feminine, but yes. Dude. Happy Day to any fathers celebrating out there!

Time again 🙂 This time, in honor of a lovely friend of mine who is moving forward into more and more amazingness (which this time, means she is actually physically moving).

Helen, may I always be that crazy Gnome lady you know, and may YOU always follow your dreams and your heart.

(And everybody send her good vibes!)

Drawn for my Mama and my mother-in-law this day, Mother’s Day ❤

Happy Mother’s Day to all the mama’s out there, of all and any kinds!

minion_majesty_rachelillustrates

For my Minion-loving sister-in-law for the past holiday season and her birthday recently. It was originally just a lineart, but she asked me to finish it for the next gift-occasion, and now it lives in glory in this frame.

Gotta love these little guys, and unicorns in general.

For some reason I’ve been having trouble getting back into the swing of things, art-wise, so I finished up this teeny sketch I did last summer.

OTP time is important too, anyway. And while I totally respect and am impressed by the openness of their relationship, the idea of these two beeeeeeee-yoooooteeful ladies someday getting hitched warms my hopelessly romantic heart.

Original is roughly 2 inches by 4 inches, btw.
