I’M DONE!

Yup, that’s right! I’ve completed all the illustrations for the Brooklyn Sketchbook Project! I’m also done with the paper version that I’ll be sending of to the gallery, AND I’m also done with the book version both to be available in French and in English. It has been a very busy week!

I’m still considering a few things before I send out for proof copies. I want to give myself a few days to forget about the project to come back to it with fresh eyes.

Here are a few pictures of the paper version I’ll be sending to Brooklyn. I love that it feels like an old fashioned scrapbook. It’s simple, but effective I think! It also really helped to have an assembled version to figure out the layout of everything.

I drank…

Hot chocolate! To help with anxiety and stress, I’ve turned to chocolate. I make two versions of this drink and both are delicious. I find that the ingredients are so comforting, and it really helps to take the time to prepare something like this each morning.

Warm Hot Cocoa
– 1 cup oat milk
– 1 tbs raw cacao powder
– 15 drops of rose glycerate or 1 tsp of rose water
– 1/2 tsp of vanilla extract
Mix everything together over the stove except the rose extract. When warm to your taste, pour in your favourite mug and add the rose extract. Enjoy!

Cold Cocoa
– 1 cup oat milk
– 1 tbs raw cacao powder
– 1 banana
– 15 drops of rose glycerate or 1 tsp of rose water
Mix everything together in your blender. Pour in your favourite glass and enjoy!

My favourite rose glycerate is made by the lovely Chantal. She harvests wild roses and prepares them in all sorts of ways. Check her out!

New in Store

Over here, in Canada, Mother’s day was last month, and Father’s day is this month. That’s why I have been working on some pictures to celebrate dads!

These cute little bears are both available as coloring pages and coloring cards. I really enjoyed imagining what kinds of activities papa bears could do with their cubs.

I hope you’ll find them cute and check them out!
