Nature's Child 1

Nature's Child the first in a series of whimsical fairy creatures. To be rather honest they are rather popular with a number of artist at present and this is my version. I guess about 18months ago or more I saw something in this line and it reminded of some Danish seasonal plates an exchange student gave an aunt way back in the 1980's. When googling I was not able to find them, but if my faulty memory serves my right I think they must have been Danish Bjorn plates for the style looks similar to what I have found on the net.

The digital stamp/ line art for this first one can be found in my mygrafico shop :)

For the kids

It is funny how you come across things. In a recent freelancer job post someone was looking for freelancers to draw pictures and gave this cool site as references .
Since then I have visited on a regular basis to print out the hidden pictures for my hubby to use with the kids to practice latvian grammar with our kids. The older one finds and the younger one colours in the found object on the search sheet. Once an item is found they have to say what it is, where it is and what they thinking is happening in the picture. The kids love this and I thought I would just share it. The kids can find the pictures via using a printed or or via the pc in interactive form. Besides this there are al ot of other activities on the site which are worth visiting. It is definately worth checking out if you got kids and a moment or two.

Earth Day Freebie

On 22 April 2010 Earth day will be here. What is Earth day? Basically I think it is a day to stop and think about environment both micro and macro. Most folks would agree that old mother nature needs a helping hand. So while each and every day should be one where we are conscious of the things we do and the effects it has on our surrounding, on Earth day we should make a special effort to do something for our environment, something as simple as walking down a stretch of beach and picking up the garbage- it may save a turtles life; or if you walk down a country lane, pick up the discarded fast food wrapper some passerby dropped- a storks life may be saved.
In honour of this important day here's a clipart and line art I drew. To download the files please click here. Remember to read the terms of use :) File formats JPG and PNG.
